gmail composeIf you had this feeling that Gmail was not working according to speed despite having upgraded your data line to the fastest one possible in the market, then you are not alone. It seems that Google’s Gmail, the well known online email service has been experiencing issues which has led to delayed emails as well as the failure of downloading attachments. Google claimed that approximately 0.24% of its Gmail user base has been affected by such issues, although an update which was released later in the afternoon claimed that the number of Gmail users who were affected numbered “less than 50 percent”.

It does seem as though things have gotten worse, instead of heading in the other direction. Considering how Gmail themselves have some 425 million users, it is a rather sizeable chunk who would be left wondering what happened to their favorite email service. Well, the Gmail team has been investigate the issue throughout the afternoon, and at 3:00 p.m. ET, they claimed that the service has been restored for some users, with expectations of a full resolution within the hour, although do take that claim with a pinch of salt. Has Gmail’s downtime affected you as well as your organization in a largely negative manner, or is it a mere roadbump in the day?
