LOCAL INTERNET SLOW AS SEVERAL UNDERSEA CABLES WERE CUT?

On February 29th, several undersea cables in the Asia Pacific region experienced major fiber cuts.

Unfortunately, there is currently no estimated time-to-resolution available from the undersea cable operators. We will update this post when we have more information.
