Mini Blackout

It is reported that internet services for most of East Athens went down at around 18:00 yesterday, and did not come back up until several hours later.

It seems that excess use by the press centre of the Olympic Games is being blamed for this.

However, earlier predictions of chaotic blackouts of the net and phone services have not come to pass.

The reason?

The Games are not attracting the level of interest that the organisers had hoped/hyped for.
