    Com Hem Revs Up 500-Meg Broadband Tier 

    article_7652

    “Com Hem, Sweden’s largest cable operator, is stretching the legs of its broadband network with the rollout of a broadband tier that maxes out at 500 Mbps downstream and 50 Mbps in the upstream.

    Available to “over 1 million households,” the new tier will set customers back SEK 899 (US$138.03) per month and give the MSO another high-end weapon to wield against competing telcos such as Telenor ASA and TeliaSonera AB.”

    How To Survive A DNS DDoS Attack – Consider using multiple DNS providers 

    https://www.internetsociety.org/blog/tech-matters/2016/10/how-survive-dns-ddos-attack-consider-using-multiple-dns-providers

    If you want to, you can use a primary DNS server and secondary DNS servers as failovers. It’s a little weird, as you’ll need to synchronize between the two and make sure. It helps if you’re using the same company for both your primary and secondary DNS and they’re running the secondary for you. This really helps with synchronizing nameserver records.

    You can also just run your own DNS server, but it’s really inexpensive to just pay for it yourself. You can switch out your IP address to something else as a failover, too.

    Mostly, you just get used to DDoS attacks after a while and plan a strategy around what you’ve experienced. You earn to be resilient over time. And you also have to deal with the fact that sometimes the Internet goes down. This isn’t electricity. We don’t have crazy blackouts like this. This is the web, and the infrastructure is very different.

    There will be many more DDoS attack in the future, especially from compromised IoT devices. We ned to get used to the idea that the Internet will go down sometimes and get used to it. Humans don’t die when we get a cold. Neither should we if experience a DDoS attack.
