“We detected the disruption within one minute, then identified and isolated the cause, and disabled the configuration. Within 49 minutes, 95% of our network was operating as normal,” he added. “This outage was broad and severe, and we’re truly sorry for the impact to our customers and everyone who relies on them,” Rockwell wrote.

Rockwell acknowledged that the circumstances that caused the outage were “specific,” but said, “We should have anticipated it.”

Make sure you have prepared for the possibility of not having internet for a period of time. If it’s down for long enough, the masses will not cope well.  Many are addicted to social media and their devices and to expect an internet outage of over a day to go smoothly would be delusional.

Continue to use critical thinking and your own discernment. Strange things continue to occur.
