Submission + - Gmail Outage Affecting Even Google Employees (google.com) 5

David Lechnyr writes: "We run a hosted Google Apps system and have been receiving 502 Server Error responses for the past hour. The unusual thing about this is that our Google phone support rep (which paid accounts get) indicated that this outage is also affecting Google employees as well, making it difficult to coordinate.

you are making the assumption that someone only has a single computer connected to this link.

The averge geek home has between 1 to 3 computers devices, add in the support for ondemand TV over that internet link, and well, you can start to eat up a good amount of bandwidth.

Now imagine someone with a big or extended family.

I am not saying that any family would be able to saturate a 40Gbps link, but this link would probably not be the norm for any family for a while.
