Surging Traffic Is Slowing Down Our Internet
More people at home practicing social distancing could impact internet speed
The internet is under huge strain because of the coronavirus

Anyone who has had cable internet knows that it slows down every day - at 5pm when people get home from work! During the day, cable internet is wide open and likely the only time you will ever see the actual download speed that you are paying for. Now that everybody is sequestered at home, we are just seeing during the day, what we used to see at 5pm. For those with fiber connections (vs. cable), there is no change at all. The world is not ending, and neither is the Internet.
