This morning, I got an email from my hosting provider. In the email, they said that the earthquake in Taiwan has distrupted entire Asia network when two undersea cables (SeaMeWe 3 and APCN2) are damaged.
That’s why the internet connection is so slow right now. I even can’t get access to some websites because of this problem. I’m sure entire Malaysia and Asia face the same problem. And here is the news from Rediff, Earthquake off Taiwan hits cables, BPOs unhurt.
An earthquake off Taiwan on Tuesday night, measuring 6.7-7.1 on the Richter scale, knocked out Internet links to India for 20-25 minutes and affected Reliance Communications’ FLAG and VSNL’s SEA-ME-WE-3 under-sea cable systems, even as telecommunications around Asia was severely disrupted, with Internet services slowing and financial transactions being hindered, particularly in the currency market.

Cypher: Because of this problem, I can’t update my site as usual. It takes so long to open my website and some other sites from here. When the connection back to normal, I will post back with the updates. [tags]earthquake, internet, connection, taiwan, news[/tags]
