Internet Disrupted across Asia and Middle East as Undersea Cables Cut Again

Internet connections across the Middle East and Asian countries has been seriously disrupted after submarine cables were severed.

The undersea cables linking Europe and Asia, which were damaged by ships early this year, have reportedly been cut again causing severe disruption to internet and voice traffic in the Middle East and other parts of Asia.

India seems to have been particularly hit with around 82% of voice traffic getting affected. I have been experiencing slow connection speed on my Airtel Broadband line since yesterday so this could be a possible reason.

France Telecom is estimating that the cables would be repaired by December 25th but the Internet traffic can only be restored by December 31st.

How Undersea Cables are Repaired
