Some interesting things in life and internet

Why there is slow internet access today

Posted by Jackie R. on December 27, 2006

Internet is very slow at this part of the world today where I am based, Southeast Asia. The webpages load as if they were carrying some tons of data and in many instances, the process stops half way. I thought my computer was affected by some powerful trojans or malware.

Well, I did manage to gain access to some news articles which have reported that this sluggishness is not a localised issue in which the local ISP’s systems are at faults but due to the major earthquake in central-south Taiwan and that caused some damages to the underwater submarine cables. I am very sorry to hear Taiwan is hit by earthquakes as it is a country I like a lot. Well, it looks as if 26th December is inauspicious because natural disasters always seem to occur on this day.

At least I still managed to get this article posted.
