Lights go off at eBone

RIP

KPNQwest's European network - eBone - is to be shut down as of 17:00 BST today. The closure follows the collapse of a deal to buy the high-speed data network.

Engineers starting closing down the network yesterday.

Some experts claim that the closure of eBone could slow traffic throughout Europe while the problem settles down.

Whatever.

Perhaps a minute's silence is in order. ®
