This is The Internet Report, where we uncover what’s working and what’s breaking on the Internet—and why. This week, we’re pleasantly surprised to say that the Internet did not break and there were no major election-night outages to report. That’s not to say we didn’t catch performance glitches in the days and weeks around the big night, however. Watch this week’s episode, as we cover performance issues at a Secretary of State website as well as why CNN’s election map website was so slow to load for many.
