CNET Asia Community Blog Entry – SLOW Internet Speed Across Asia


My new entry over at CNET Asia Community Blog is up. This week’s entry, “SLOW Internet Speed Across Asia”. Click here for the full read.

Excerpt from the post –

“According to Telecom Asia, “Monday’s quake, which measured 6.5 on the Richter scale, has severely restricted access to foreign websites from Hong Kong and mainland China for much of the past two days.

In a poll on the sina.com website late yesterday afternoon, 46.2% said they could not access any foreign websites and another 37.0% said the bandwidth speeds were “very slow”. Popular apps and websites like MSN and Yahoo were unavailable for much of the period, users complained.

China’s biggest fixed-line carrier, China Telecom said it had experienced “a series of breaks” in subsea capacity off Taiwan. By noon Tuesday it had recovered to 60% of lost capacity. It was working with other international operators and expected to have 75% restored by today or Thursday.”
