Submission + - Major Internet Outage Affecting Users In The Northwest US->

bobcat7677 writes: A problem with the Sprint network is causing major headaches for businesses and individuals. Sprint claims the issue started with a fibre cut in Wisconsin, while the concentration of users affected seems to be in the Northwest US.

I had to VPN to another local data center that is not using Sprint routes to have a stable enough connection to post this story. When on my local connection, most of my packets get lost being routed to Tokyo, Kansas or Australia for no apparent reason.
