    Internet Traffic / Response Slow Down

    Quick heads up.

    Looks like a few links between the US (where our servers are located) and major Hong Kong ISPs and their bandwidth providers are down or are severely congested.

    Problem should iron itself out in a few hours (from what I'm told by our network guys in Cyberport)...

    I was wondering why I can't connect to most sites this morning.

    The same here, using PCCW Broadband.... connection is damn slow, MSN is not even working.... How long does it normally take until service is back to normal?!

    No clue .. problem is not with the local ISPs .. seems to be on the trans-pacific links.

    Internet Traffic / Response Slow Down

    Is anyone else having significant problems connecting to sites overseas? I can reach Google.com with absolutely no problems, but I can't reach my site at all - when I do a tracert, it barely connects after the 9th hop.

    Other sites, like this one, I can reach, but extremely slow.

    Interestingly, the same thing happens with my phone on GPRS.

    Does anyone know if the earthquake last night took out a major internet pipeline or something? Usually I could find out, but, you know... no internet and all...

    Ah, there we go. I didn't notice because it would have taken 5 minutes to load the entire page.. I couldn't wait, and just hit 'new post' to see if this is a confirmed problem

    The earthquake last night must have knocked something out...
