Repairs To Undersea Internet Cables Delayed Again?
January 30, 2007 by Gaman
TMNet has not released an official statement on this but according to a news release from AFP today bad weather had again delayed the full repairs to undersea cables damaged last year.
Most of the seven submarine cables have now been fixed but one will take longer than initially estimated.
According to the organization that’s responsible for the repair work, one section of a cable will be completed by the end of February.
We don’t know if TMNet is dependent on that particular cable but if it does, we’ll still have to bear with the less than normal connection for a few weeks more.
In spite of this less exciting outlook, I am noticing a mark improvement in my broadband speed and it’s more tolerable now as compare to a few days ago. Downloading and uploading big files is still a slow process though.
