Most of China's internet connection directed to home of shell corporation in Wyoming
January 22, 2014 - Ben Klein
"In one of the more bizarre twists in recent Internet memory, much of the Internet traffic in China was redirected to a mysterious company in Cheyenne, Wyo., on Tuesday.
A large portion of China’s 500 million Internet users were unable to load websites ending in .com, .net or .org for nearly eight hours in most regions of China, according to Compuware, a Detroit-based technology company."
The Washington Post says about the house:
"As for the Wyoming house itself, it's not a bit unlike the wardrobe from C.S. Lewis' "Chronicles of Narnia." It may look small on the outside, but it technically houses around 2,000 corporate entities and people. A 2011 Reuters report says the place is filled with numbered mailboxes and serves as the headquarters for Wyoming Corporate Services, a business that helps set up shell companies that exist only on paper."
