"My computer is frozen" takes on a whole new meaning.
It is now winter in Antarctica, which means the sun won't rise until September. But those working at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole research station can't count on Netflix to keep them entertained during the six-month-long night.
That's because the internet is too slow to stream anything, Josiah Horneman, a physician assistant working at the station, told Insider.
Antarctica has not been connected to the network of underwater cables that carry data around the world. Instead, the remote station relies on satellites to get their internet, as Horneman explains in this TikTok post below:

CenturyLink is asking the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to approve copper retirement in a number of states.
The retirements are due primarily to growth in the areas. CenturyLink will replace copper loops with fiber loops as customers migrate to higher speed broadband. It provides that broadband over its fiber-to-the-home overlay architecture.
CenturyLink copper retirement will happen in parts of Arizona, Colorado, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oregon, Utah and Washington. The company scheduled the fiber implementations for September.
Randy Clarke is CenturyLink’s vice president of federal regulatory affairs. He said his company “constantly strives” to exceed its customers’ expectations.
