I've noticed that the Internet seemed kinda slow today. Then I heard that something like 58 percent of all Internet traffic goes through Worldcom.com hardware. Ohhhhhh, that would be scary if all that were true and scarier still if all that equipment suddenly started getting pulled offline.

Can anyone confirm / deny this rumour?

I don't know about percentages Duggers, but Worldcoms traffic is big. There was a discussion I missed on the BBC the other day about the exact scenario you're talking about.

Hmmm, I didn't really add anything worthy at all did I?!
