    Is the EU infrastructure really that bad that they're only doing it to us?

    No which is the confusing part of this. Someone seems to have decided it was a risk so they better do something about it. Apparently the ISP have said big game releases are way more stressful on the network (the new free COD battle royal hammered them apparently). ISPreview had a few pieces about it.

    For a US perspective, I've just read about some cities in the US feeling a 'Covid-19 internet speed impact' averaging up to 44 per cent (Austin Texas).
