Slow Internet? Blame it on "Vardah"

Have you been facing slow Internet connection speeds? Well, the blame goes to Vardah, the Cyclone that hit Chennai and disturbed the nearby undersea cable network. Take a look at how India's connected with the Internet. The map below shows the major undersea cables that connect India with the rest of the world. The network near Chennai has been disturbed by the cyclon.

Most part of the southern and central India seems to be affected. Internet Service Providers like YOU, AIRTEL, Reliance Communications have been affected and have already informed their users about the issue.

In future, we may have some relief with the third Internet Gateway getting ready at Agartala.

I see ! I was wondering when got SMS from You Broadband about same. Now it's bit clear with this communication lines.
Even the email of one of our companies is down as it is Chennai based. Murphy (or at least his law) is quite active in these situations. A lot of urgent work on hand requires data I have on that mail.
Update. Mail back in action. Unfortunately, I have to also.
