Is there somewhere I can go to see current internet outages around the world? Like a link that shows major outages or latency currently experience? I had very choppy connection last night near St Louis and was just chatting with someone in Australia and they are having same issues now. Was there any reported major backbone problems currently?
Last night I noticed XO was having problems, which caused sites that you get to through XO to be offline until Charter routed around it. It has been fine today though. If you think it is a DNS issue, try using 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 or opendns.
