Hey carb,

As the title says, is anyone experiencing Internet issues. Seems a lot of sites im going to are down but YouTube, carb and some others are 100%.

Thought it was a Arfrihost issue but nothing reported on their side, seems mostly local sites.

I've been having problems all day. Tried playing online earlier and getting terrible ping and packet loss left right and center.

Having the same issue thought it was just me as i kept disconnecting when gaming. I`m with Webafrica running on Vuma`s back bone. Youtube and carb works well but many sites barely loading.

Yep, experiencing those exact issues. I'm on adsl as Fibre is so unreliable here.

They have reported it. Check the network page.
Fibre, adsl, mobile down. Seems country wide.

There is a big issue affecting international connectivity affecting some ISPs (Definitely Web Africa and Afrihost). Fortunately a lot of services such as Netflix and Youtube have local servers so not affected but any website hosted internationally with out a local presence CDN or local servers will be quite slow. Seems like massive packet loss causing it on local connections. My completely non-professional guess would be some kind of DDOS attack saturating the international link of the affected ISPs.

Took this screenshot on the Afrihost app on my phone. Some sites also just not working while others are.

No issues here on lte a bit surprising as its through Afrihost.

In other news looks like a lot of DDoS attacks going around of late :/

is this caused by people?

I just wonder what these people do when something they want to use, gets down time

it pisses me off how people these days get satisfaction in causing so much trouble for whole countries :mad:

EDIT: if it isn't caused by people...... no wait, last line still counts :)
