Looks like it’s not just a Kardashian’s oiled up butt that can break the internet. The country’s second largest DSL internet service provider iiNet’s servers were down in Perth and even as far as Geelong, Victoria for more than six hours on Monday. The hottest day in January since 1991, Perth’s heat rocketed to 44.4 degrees just before 2.00 pm and took with it the precious internet.
“Due to record breaking temperatures in our Perth data centre earlier today, we shut down our servers as a precautionary measure,” said an iiNet spokesman.
Despite the lack of connection, angered users vented via Twitter at the incident.
Even after the problem was fixed late Monday night, some customers still experienced problems with their connection. Weather warnings have since been issued.
