Frequent connection timeouts

I started seeing frequent timeouts from around 2 PM Oct 16 2023.

Was there any issue on your end? I checked my internet connection and it is fine. Seems something is off on your side. Below is the error
Every 3rd request was getting timedout.

TimeoutError: _ssl.c:990: The handshake operation timed out

Also what is the quickest way to resolve this? This dev forum is not the fastest way to raise it

    TimeoutError: _ssl.c:990: The handshake operation timed out
    No, there was no websocket drop-in connection at our end. Handshake operations timeout error is encountered mostly ecause of bad internet. Maybe change the network/ISP and check the behavior.

    @rakeshr Its not the websocket. Its the HTTP requests getting timedout.
