Mates in Melbourne regularly log off for the day if there is any mention of thunderstorms.
They’re all on nbn fibre to the node (copper to home) and right before thunder booms they’re cut off. One guy has overhead and still get cut if it’s too windy or raining.
Aus’s rollout really screwed the pooch, we’ve got it much better. Only disappointing part is they have all the datacentres due to population, even though we often get better connections than majority of the locals.
