Have you grown tired of a slow Internet? Apparently, we will have to endure this dragging cyberlife because of the ongoing repairs of undersea cables broken during the Taiwan quake in December last year, as I wrote earlier.
One Philippine Internet service provider, in fact, has spoken indicating that they continue to endure the impact of the Asia-wide slowdown of Internet services, despite efforts to reroute Internet traffic to other networks. Here’s a quote from Jason Yu, director of the Philippine Internet Service Organization, a group of Philippine-based ISPs:
[M]ost ISPs still suffer from latency, or lag in their bandwidth due to congestion in cables that are carrying the extra bandwidth. But he said some telecommunication providers are locking down bandwidth-intensive websites to lessen the congestion, in particular is the video website Youtube.
