Ebone Connected To The… Nothing
from the bye-bye-internet dept
Just as I’m reading an article about how the internet shouldn’t be affected by a possible Worldcom bankruptcy I find out that KPNQwest is shutting off the ebone network which carries 25% of European traffic. I go back to that first Worldcom article where it points out that between Worldcom and KPNQwest, they carry over half of the internet traffic in Europe. So, half of that half is now gone, and if Worldcom goes down, that brings down at least another 25%. This should be fun.
