International Internet Link Down

Posted on December 2006 at about 1:49 AM by hwa

Last night, around 2am i was playing WoW, then all the sudden my WoW ping reach until 2k, then shortly after that all my instant messenger got disconnected. At first i thought it was the live update by Blizzard that’s why it lagged a bit, but it’s not, it’s because the earthquake in Taiwan and caused the international link went down.

According to Reuters, the biggest quake was measured at the magnitude of 7.1 Richter scale, and because of this at least six undersea cables were effected and the international internet line is now congested, several country in Asia including China, South Korea and Malaysia will experience some delay while visit the internet.
