      “Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince also tweeted that this issue was caused by Verizon and Noction, with it not being possible to contact the Verizon NOC during the outage.”

      All is clear now, but the balloon really went up this AM.

      As little as I know of BGP, rumor has it that it has needed major overhaul for some time, but the scope of the issue has put it off.

      Opinions/thoughts?

      No, it’s not just you: Half of the internet is down, including Google, Amazon, and Reddit

      What better way to start off the week than by not being able to use virtually any online service or access half of the internet’s most popular sites? That seems to be the case, as DownDetector (and many tweets) suggest that Google, Amazon, Reddit, and Spectrum — just to name a few — are experiencing issues this morning. Those issues appear to have begun around 6 or 7 AM ET, just as the East Coast was starting its day.
