So we were using the internet all good and dandy yesterday, when it suddenly stopped and went very, very slowly for web browsing...MSN, POP, PS3, etc all worked fine for the next 24hrs (only came back this afternoon). We have fibre and live in a new apartement block. Dad had a good shout at us kids for wrecking the internet with whatever we'd done (nothing new there!). I had a go at the modem etc and it al appeared OK. Well it was in the papers this morning that someone has cut through another cable in the mediterranean sea piping the internet for the Gulf! (we're in Abu Dhabi) Anyone else had to give weird excuses to parents for why the internet's suddenly stopped?
