Slow Internet Connection Due to Cable Cut


Until now, Internet connection at home is still in a very slow pace. My sister who is using Smart Bro is not having problems with her Internet access at all. Thus, I initially thought that it was only our connection or a downtime in PLDT DSL, but then some people I know are also experiencing this. Some are saying and PLDT informs that the slow internet connection is because of the earthquake that hit Japan last August 11.

I have just read this official report a few hours ago. Updates from ZD Net Asia says that-
"A cut in the Asia-Pacific Cable Network 2 (APCN2) undersea submarine cable crippled connection speeds for users in the Asia-Pacific region on Wednesday, particularly in Singapore and the Philippines."

According to a report sent by TM Net, a Malaysian telco, this is because of Typhoon Morakat that hit the region over the weekend. This is the reason why Internet traffics are being rerouted to other cable systems.

I am really hoping that this situation will get back to normal as soon as possible. There's a lot that I still need to accomplish.

I hope they get it fixed for you soon. I know how frustrating it is.
Have a good weekend.

it's actually not just a nationwide outage...our prime telco provider was hit by this causing businesses to have the same encounters as we do.

I thought I was the only one experiencing it. Plus the fact that our area is experiencing constant power outage. They're hampering my blogging operations, haha. Thanks for letting me know.
