Network Status - Coronavirus



  • Backbone providers are evidently feeling the strain as more and more of those who have the luxury are telecommuting. I've noted increased lag and decreased speeds over a number of days now. Packets being dropped, etc. Well, it's hit RPU and we are seeing substantial lag times today. Server side RPU is humming along as per usual.

    tl;dr: RPU is slow due to upstream network issues.

    • Per CenturyLink they have fixed the fiber connections that were causing outages. Routes going over them (once routers re-converge) will start to slowly make it's way back to what RPU members used to see a couple days ago.
