Sub-sea cable cut interrupts ISP’s in India

A string of submarine cable disruptions in Egypt, has widely impacted internet traffic in India, Middle East and North Africa.

The subsea cables that were disrupted include South East Asia–Middle East–Western Europe 4 (SMW-4), India-Middle East-Western Europe (I-ME-WE) and Europe India Gateway (EIG) systems. The international consortium of operators in the region that manages the submarine cable system is in the process to restore services.

It is believed that most of the Indian users felt the impact on the download and buffer speed and would last for couple of days till the issue is restored.

Most affected are BSNL & Airtel but airtel has decided to reroute their traffic through some other channel, lets see what BSNL will do.

ISP’s affected in India include BSNL, MTNL, Bharti Airtel , Vodafone et al. The problem of reduced speed lasts for another 3-4 weeks at least.

Off Topic: BSNL has increased its ROAM FREE call charge at Roaming Local Re. 1/min STD Rs. 1.5 / Min, hats off BSNL, you really good policy maker and serving our nation. 😉 😛
