I have seen many links on Facebook that lead to error pages. This is especially true with all those news story links that NPR posts on Facebook. But I cannot replicate this issue on my PC. This issue only happens while I am on my phone and on
the T-Mobile Network.
The only logical conclusion for me to draw is that there is an issue with routing link traffic to the right server clusters based on IP-GEO on T-Mobile’s
network for Facebook. This is not really surprising because often T-Mobile’s IP-GEO could be rather unreliable. Check out my previous blog post about the T-Mobile IP-GEO inaccuracies.
