Taiwan Earthquake causes an Internet outage.

leave a comment »

The Tuesday evening earthquake in Taiwan has left Hong Kong without internet connectivity. We are back in the ice age.

We have no internet connectivity – no emails, can’t log on to websites (local or external) and no inbound faxes to Hong Kong. Websites are taking ages to come up. Typing google.com on a 8Mbs net connection used to take milli seconds (if not nano) to come up, but now takes more than 4-5 minutes.

At work the traffic has been routed via India and hence we have some connectivity to emails and net, but definitely not like what it used to be earlier.

Have not witnessed such a kind of an outage personally ever.
