Damage to Submarine Cable

Internet users in Malaysia may have trouble surfing websites hosted in the United States and Taiwan for the next couple of weeks due to damage to a submarine cable system.

Internet service provider Telokem Malaysia said there would be slow connectivity after the Asia-Pacific Cable Network 2 (APCN2) submarine cable system was damaged by unknown causes.

The last time users here experienced a major slowdown in Internet services was when the same cable was damaged by an earthquake in December 2006.

But this time around nobody knows what the exact cause. Sabotage? Terrorist attack? or maybe a big hungry whale bite the cable off!
