APCN2?

Posted by Pierce in TMNET Special Interest Group | Comments Off on APCN2?

ok…. Lets read the TM Net’s announcement once more, Shall We?

……This is attributed to the Richter 7.1 magnitude earthquake that struck off the southern coast of Taiwan at 12.07 a.m. on 27th December 2006, which caused the APCN2 (Asia Pacific Cable Network 2) submarine cable fault between Shantou, China and Tanshui, Taiwan and between Lantau, Hong Kong and Chongming, China.

Ok. That’s fine. Some outage and it clearly states places in only Taiwan and China.

As a result,  Internet users in Malaysia and other parts of Asia may be experiencing some delay when assessing content and websites hosted outside of Malaysia, especially in U.S., Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea and Europe.

Wait a minute… US? Japan? Korea? Europe? Are we depending on ACPN2 as part of our trunk to connect to Europe and USA? Don’t really make sense.
