Wondered if any other people are encountering major connectivity problems today on the internet?
VPNs like Astrill do not connect, nor will their websites load. Websites that were otherwise available, if throttled, are suddenly no longer available.
Astrill website appears to be down regardless of location.
Using ExpressVPN and the example page you gave to load works fine!
yep everything's fine. (using chinese vpn)
For a brief period this morning I noticed the internet slowed considerably, especially https connections. My speed went from a max of 6 mbps down to about 2 mbps for about an hour.
Were you using anything else before trying to connect? Torrent? Google?
expressvpn.com cannot be reached either.
Astrill website is back up but I cannot connect to the service.
On my phone this morning astrill told me my account had been changed and I needed to update my protocol and it bumped me to a page that wouldn't load on 3g. Back home on wireless it did the update but it still won't connect. It seems to be connected ok on my computer but I need to test it.
A few days ago, my phone was bumping my astrill connection every few minutes. It was very annoying.
same about Astrill but now is working.
oh sweet, yes it's back up. I wonder what's up with the off-VPN blocking of completely innocent sites such as Europe's portal.
I remember a few years back the US National Parks website was blocked. THAT was weird. No clue if it still is.
