Internet disruption Thursday, April 14...and good news

The Internet slowdown we experienced Thursday afternoon (April 14) was a result of changes made on OPLIN's end in preparation for an increase in our available bandwidth. Sorry about that...we had no warning. The good news is that we now have 200 megabits bandwidth from OPLIN, doubling our previous bandwidth.

This does not mean we will be "twice as fast", but things should seems snappier in the afternoons or whenever the network is more heavily used.
