Internet Traffic Report reports that Asian and North American packet loss has jumped to an average 30-35% in the last 24 hours, compared with 9% for Europe and 0% each for South America and Australia:

There has also been a 7-point drop in North America's overall Traffic Index which is the Internet Traffic Report's metric of network speed.

Akamai, the Content Delivery Network with hundreds of servers around the world, reports that internet-based attacks are up 50% over average (it's not clear what criteria Akamai uses to determine attacks.)

Despite the above, many people have reported that their internet experience hasn't noticeably slowed or changed; others are barely able to connect at all.

0% each for South America and Australia:

Thanks Andrew -
There has been problems from Australia with accessing several sites (mainly North America) but no "general, local problems"

Any idea if this is related to the current cyclone problems (except China??). Added to this, other Asian areas are also being hit by bad weather at this time

My server has no current problems, but there are cyclones and floods in many S.E.Asian areas -

And if you think its bad now, wait a few days. I don't think Sandy is going to be very kind to the Internet, never mind the power grid.

So this is why I was feeling a little slower. I panicked, thought of malware, and ended up restoring Windows from image :(
