    With over 60% of iOS's 700,000,000 devices updating to iOS 7 in less than a week the L.A. Times is reporting that it was so massive that it almost broke and brought down the entire internet!

    No soup for you!
    According to apple it was 200m and that accounted for half... did you read the entire article?

    If that nearly broke the the entire internet I guess Georgia must be on a different trunk because my service never changed from what it normally is, 25mbit.

    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.
