No slow down here, so I'm thinking things have been sensationalized just to suck in some readers. Maybe things were different in major metropolitan areas, but you'd think that there would be more people running around like their hair is on fire because the end is nigh! The Internet is going to implode!!!
If it's a company's internal network that was stressed, then that's different and the responsibility of the network infrastructure team to balance things out. You can't blame that on the Internet.
