Too lazy to buy / implement some Azure or AWS, EA? This is 2013 - no excuse for that.

I have seen multiple rumors that tracing the SimCity data lead to the EC2 (ie, the Amazon cloud), while several others have said that it runs off Akamai's cloud service.

If either case is true (which I can't say for sure), then this isn't a matter of capacity or not being able to upgrade capacity quickly. (If you need 10000 more servers, one phonecall to Amazon takes care of that.) It's just that EA is slowly upgrading their capacity to try to get people to stop complaining with as minimal cost as possible.
