Hi all, From past one week i have experienced slowness in internet. Some sites are not opening and some are very slow. Yesterday i saw in news stating that there is a global internet by cyber attack. some site has sent anti-scam mails. That's the reason internet is not working properly worldwide. I don't know for how many days it will take to resolve this problem. Hope so every thing goes well.

The internet is not only slow. Most of the time there isn't any connectivity and I have to repeatedly call the service provider. Thanks for the info. I won't feel so frustrated now when the connection slows down and I can't visit websites. My only hope is for them to resolve the issue immediately as it is interfering with my research work.

I was having the same problem too. Sometimes it is fast but most of the time it is very slow that it doesn't load properly. I thought it was my modem connection because I don't know there's something global cyber attack going on.

I had the same problem with my computer, my computer was running really slow, so I had opened it up, and I saw there was a lot of dust in my computer, so I cleaned out my computer,and when after cleaning out my computer, I notice the speed didn't pick up so I downloaded another browser, and that is what changed everything, for me it was the web browser Orca, that made all the different, with the speed of my computer, you should try it.

The problem here is global cyber attack. That has made internet very slow thus making system also slow. I think the concerned parties should do something about this issue and try to resolve it as soon as possible.

Yes even i have the same doubts in my mind, i got so pissed off yesterday with the internet speed that i felt clueless about whom to contact about this issue. then i read about the global cyber attack which terrified me to the core. i think the situation is much better than before and i hope everything gets back to normal in the coming days.

Yes hope so all issues are solved quickly. In today's world without internet there is nothing. We all are dependent on internet. 90% of our daily activities are related to internet.

My internet is always slow. Its okay today but some days there is nothing to do for it. I haven't heard anything about a global slow down? That sounds pretty radical. I don't know how that could happen.
