An old TV plagued an entire UK village with daily internet outages for 18 months
Internet engineers racked their brains for a year and a half trying to figure out why broadband connections for a rural village in Wales would go out every morning. It would happen like clockwork—the internet would be working fine late into the evening, but once 7:00 am rolled around, residents would suffer crippled speeds and even lose their connections entirely for a bit. The culprit turned out to be an old TV. Or more precisely, the electrical interference from a dated television set.
