Most of China’s Internet Traffic Rerouted To A Small House In Wyoming

No the Chinese did not declare cyber war on an all American family. China is a nation that enjoys governing it’s people’s internet usage. Because of national firewall, users must try to find away around the restrictions . 

We believe that a service provided by Sophidea Incorporated does just that, evade the chinese national firewall. From what we understand SI simply redirects the user to their preferred site. We also believe that the Chinese government was aware of this and attempted to block SI website sites.

That’s where everything seemed to go wrong. A tiny little home in Cheyenne, Wyoming happened to be a front for over 2000 various companies including Sophidea Incorporated. Instead of blocking traffic to SI sites the Chinese government sent most of its internet traffic to this house shutting down the most internet traffic in China for almost 8 hours. Well that back fired.
