off and on is like saying the whole clearnet on earth went off and on
if we really put them into parallels.
Tor is an overlay network of Internet. When the internet is down,
everything is down.
But that's unlikely. The Internet (ARPANET) was developed during the
Cold War to withstand nuclear war.
Solution: Much more Freifunk nodes ;-)
The Tor network consists of only a few thousand servers. Total relay
bandwith ~600 Gbits/s.
It's easy for large botnets and government 3 letter agencies to attack
it when they want to.
(Feb. 2020: DDoS attack against AWS lasted for three days and peaked at
an astounding 2.3 terabytes per second!)
Big players like Google, AWS, Github or OVH even run into problems.
Solution: The Monero way. Offer your service via v3 onion and I2P. And
then just wait until the DNMs have ruined each other.

It's free software and it gives you freedom!
