Hayai USA/Canada

For those of you in the know, you'll know I've spent quite a bit of time in the US this year. So is it happening?

At the moment, all I can say is "maybe". But I doubt we will be advertising ourselves as "the fastest".

Data plans up to 100mbit/s:  199+usage (minimum 50GB)

4 links to Mahim went down (including 1 genuine fault) nearly simultaneously on 10/10 at around 15:30, leaving only a single cable to carry traffic which was, unfortunately, became quickly overloaded instantly and many people were unable to connect (estimated 80+%)
