Despite assurances that cable operators totally have everything under control, it seems like the earthquakes really did affect the internet. Again. Shanghai Daily confirms that the 6.8 quake that rocked both Taiwan and Japan yesterday morning shook up the undersea cables once more. A back up channel that flowed through Pusan, South Korea also became victim to the earthquake, which is what caused most of the trouble for us here in Shanghai. The internet seems to be relatively okay today, so we guess whatever magic China Telecom used to tide us over until the cables are repaired works.
