I am experiencing very slow Internet connection these days – even Google home page takes about 20 seconds or longer to open.
I guess many people are experiencing the same thing. Why?
I just realized that Windows Vista SP1 is releasing these days, and according to Microsoft, Windows Update on every Vista computer is busy downloading from Windows Update to get SP1.
I checked my system tray and realized that in the last night, it only downloaded 49% of the update, and the number does not change in a long time (10 minutes?)
If you also experience the slowness of Internet connection (not only in China, but also in many other countries), it may because of this. The last time, it was confirmed that the Windows XP SP2 patch was the major reason for slow Internet connection. Last time, it lasted for quite some time (few days).
Hope someone can calculate the money wasted on bandwidth because of Microsoft’s update.
