My internets have been acting strange over the past few days and I'm beginning to suspect it might be to do with the recent solar storm.

If that is the cause of the disruptions, then I'm amazed I have any internet at all (or electricity, for that matter).

Has anyone else been having issues with their internet connection?

I've been having issues.

But my problem is that i live deep in the woods in Canada and pay 80$ per month on a 20GB cap internet that has 800ms latency at its best since it's satellite so it has to go to space and a lot of sites get blocked by the ISP so that people like me don't download too much.


But a satellite could get knocked out, that's always possible.

No but seriously my internet has been really slow, even though I doubt it has anything to do with the Solar Storm.

My internet has been slow, but I'm 100% sure that it had nothing to do with the solar storms. My internet gets slow for a couple days every week, so I'm sure it's just business as usual.

Mine's been fine...

If anything it's actually been slightly faster. Maybe the solar storm took all of your internets and put it in mine.

Here's some perspective:

This is the worst solar storm in 6 years.

That means that 6 years ago, there was one that was worse. Does anyone remember that? No.

I wrapped myself in an electric blanket to ward off the effects. Seems to be working so far.

Wrap yourself in a magnetic blanket, and the electromagnetic radiation will turn it into an electric blanket.

So Boston just experienced two major fires today around the same area. I also noticed that my lights were flickering a bit during that time, and my friend reported the same thing. Could the solar flares have been responsible?

That's why I'm asking other people for their experiences and clarification.

My internet problems coincided perfectly with the solar storm.
From what I understand, large coronal mass ejections, like the one which reached the Earth last Tuesday, can cause disruptions on electrical transmission lines. Maybe a web server was knocked out or something, and they had to divert traffic to a backup server, causing potential connection problems.

I'm no expert on this, but does that mean I'm not allowed to ask questions?

My internet gets a bit slow mostly in the evenings, then again i am sharing the internet with about 6 other people, so that might be the time they all stream tv shows or porn or something before they go to bed.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
