Internet Outage Around The World

wow, this is pretty fascinating. Apparently a boat in the Mediterranean sliced some cable under the sea causing massive disruptions in the Middle East and Asia.

Now, I’m just curious, but, well, why would we set up half the world’s Internet on a wire that could be cut accidentally by a boat? That just don’t make no sense.

  1. I find this somewhat fascinating. Shouldn’t we take our locations where internet cable is placed a little more seriously? I would venture to guess that the cable for internet access to our White House is protected better than that which connects literally millions of internet users and businesses who rely on this important source of acquiring information. Again, I think priorities are misplaced and something needs to be done about this ASAP.

  2. I agree, this is really disturbing. From the article, they don’t know what it was and only THINK it was a boat. I thought that all the cables were laid at the BOTTOM of the sea floor. If so, what was a ship doing there that it could possibly disrupt it?
