I believe CDNs (Content Distribution Networks) like Cloudflare, Fastly (what reddit uses http://toolbar.netcraft.com/site_report?url=reddit.com ) and Akamai will sort of limit that effect. An in, heavy content like video, pics and software download are cached close to the user.

However, the internet as a business turning shittier and more centralized as a whole, that would definitely affect what us Europeans get to enjoy from across the pond.

No wonder people reported seeing UFOs in the 1950s. The airforce was test flying UFOs.
