Last week saw some frustrations in the office with the internet going for a toss. Initially I thought it was something wrong with our network, and just a week before I had raised the issue of the net being slow. However, by evening info trickled in about the fibre cut near egypt. The news channels picked up the info, but then quietly went silent with India losing miserably to Australia.
Today, digging up a bit found out an article on what happened, along with a fabulous map of the wired connections across the globe.
