Philippines and Southeast Asia Experience Slow Internet Connections

Written By David D'Angelo on Friday, August 14, 2009 | 8/14/2009

The internet was particularly very slow to no connection since yesterday. Most internet user's immediate reaction was to curse their ISPs and asked what is happening. Luckily the problem this time is not the internet service providers but the underwater cables near Japan which was apparently destroyed by the recent earthquake.

A segment of the Asia-Pacific Cable Network 2 (APCN2) undersea cable network between China and Taiwan suffered a serious cable fault on Wednesday, causing Internet traffic to be rerouted onto other undersea cables and slowing Internet access for some users in Southeast Asia.


Above was the official report on the ongoing slow connection of internet across the Southeast Asia region, so we might continue to experience slow connections until the end of next week.

The APCN cables link connections of countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea and Japan. Experts say that repair of these facilities might take until August 14 or 20, depending upon weather conditions.
