News sites, Reddit, Twitch drop offline

Prominent Australian websites went offline at the same time cloud provider Fastly reported performance issues in Sydney and Perth.

The American cloud computing company reported "degraded performance" for its Australian-based content delivery network on Thursday about 3.45pm AEST.

That coincided with some Australian users being unable to access all or parts of websites including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian, Reddit, Twitch, GitHub and Stack Overflow.

Some sites returned by 4.15pm.

Just after 7pm on Thursday, Fastly reported on its website the incident had been resolved.

The company has been contacted for comment.
