My gigabit CL internet speed dropped to practically nothing, and many
sites were completely unavailable, the further away the worse the
connection. I couldn't get internet radio stations to play from
Cleveland, Boston, etc. Eventually it all returned to normal, but not
before I spent half an hour poking at everything in my network trying
to figure out what was wrong. At one point the connection was so bad
that I used my cell phone as a hotspot just to get on the net. And the
web site that was 100% offline? CenturyLink, of course.
