Streaming problems at The Blast are rare these days, but sometimes internet routing weirdness happens in various parts of the USA (where most of our streams are hosted) that is way beyond our control.
If The Blast stream you are on goes down, try the next one down the chain.
Our streams are hosted in various locations. For example, the 320kbps stream is hosted in Salt Lake City; the 160k stream (found on our "All Streams" page and our "Mobile Blasting" page) is hosted in Chicago, the 128k stream in Ashburn, Virginia. On March 20th, 2015, for example, in the morning, first there was some internet weirdness in the western USA that affected our Salt Lake City stream; while our other streams were fine. The SLC stream routing cleared up, and then there was bad internet congestion a few minutes later affecting east coast USA traffic…impacting our Ashburn stream.
So…if one stream goes down, hit the next button down the chain in our app or on our website and most likely, it will work.
