This is by far a crzy theory,

But have you guys noticed, the internet "feels" faster when the weather gets hot ?

That's just your brain slowing down in an effort to keep cool.

People go out and do things when it's warm and do less when it's cold out.
Rainy days are often slower.

Since Internet is a viscous fluid warmer weather allows Internet to loosen up a bit in it's tubes while traveling from the production plant to your home.

Wrong. This is the internet:

Over the past few decades there has been a redistribution of dignity upward. The Republicans valorized entrepreneurs, CEOs and Wall Street. The Democratic Party became dominated by people in the creative class, who attended competitive colleges, moved to affluent metro areas, married each other and ladled advantages onto their kids so they could leap even farther ahead. There was a bipartisan embrace of a culture of individualism, which opens up a lot of space for people with resources and social support but means loneliness and abandonment for people without. Four years of college became the definition of the good life, which left roughly two-thirds of the country out. And so came the crisis that Biden was elected to address the poisonous combination of elite insularity and vicious populist resentment. A group of people so enraged by a lack of respect that they are willing to risk death by Covid if they get to stick a middle finger in the air against those who they think look down on them. They are willing to torch our institutions because they are so resentful against the people who run them. The Democratic spending bills are economic packages that serve moral and cultural purposes. They should be measured by their cultural impact, not merely by some wonky analysis. In real, tangible ways, they would redistribute dignity back downward. They would support hundreds of thousands of jobs for home health care workers, child care workers, construction workers, metal workers, supply chain workers. They would ease the indignity millions of parents face having to raise their children in poverty.  David Brooks NYT 2021

Rainy days are often slower.

When it snowed and school closed in the small college town where I used to live, Netflix became unusable. If I could even get a movie to start, it would constantly be interrupted by buffering. That's the most dramatic effect I've ever seen on Internet bandwidth.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

The world has become a weird place.
