Why do they count Mississippies in Sweden
>Why do they count Mississippies in Sweden
We're in the US, the partner is/was in Sweden. We have somewhat sophisticated benchmarking for our site, and the partner's page did load within our standards within our office (we have fiber). The PM wanted to have the same 'customer experience' at his house.
Best part was when the Swedish partner sent an email asking that 'Joe' stop sending requests to speed up their site for the US and any further interruptions could risk contract termination. Didn't stop 'Joe' from asking our Network admin if there was any way he could 'intercept' Swedish traffic and make it faster.
>the network admin should give a comment
Our network admin 'Doug' was the initial target by the PM to speed things up. Doug said it took a while of convincing (seriously) that we have zero control over what happens over the ATLANTIC OCEAN. The PM knew the partner's site used my service, so he made the intellectual leap that the performance 'issue' had to be my service.
A little more to that story (the PM got my boss, and his boss involved), but I'll run out of space.
