Global Internet Speeds Slows Down - BIGGEST ATTACK IN HISTORY

TheGuardian : Spamhaus internet attack: was it all a PR stunt?

Gizmodo concludes the whole story was essentially a cynical bid by CloudFlare to drum up more business. James Blessing of the UK Internet Service Providers Association council won't go quite that far, saying the attack "did have an impact. Some sites will be affected." But while the global internet, or parts of it, may potentially be vulnerable to a truly massive attack using the kind of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) techniques Cyberbunker has allegedly deployed, this one is probably not it. Yet. If you really want to slow down the internet, the best way may still be the simplest: cut a cable.

My internet were kinda stalling for 2 days. Have to stop and reload websites few times to get it to working. At first I thought it was some problem with my connection or PC itself, but now got the reason. Thanks for the info, terence_fdes...
