Reuben going on Leave 27 May 2010 – 6 June 2010

One of the places I'll be staying in Bali

Hey all, I will have intermittent internet access from 27 May 2010 till 6 June 2010 as I am going on holiday to Bali.

During this time, direct messages to me will be replied a lot slower. However, support will be handled by Wolffeh and Pit Boss and account generations will proceed as usual.

Just drop us a mail or post a thread in our forum if you have any queries!

SMW4 Cable Update – Disruptions to East Coast US and Europe will continue until 27 May

This notice effects only ISPs serviced by SMW4 which would include Streamyx, Singtel and several Indian ISPs.

The repairs on SMW4 off Mumbai which began yesterday on the 23 May 2010 is expected to be completed by the 27 May 2010.

The cable repair ship has arrived and is performing upgrades as planned.

While this repair work is underway, disruptions to connections to Europe and East Coast of US is expected to continue. However, due to rerouted traffic, congestion is expected to also occur on the remaining routes to other international destinations.

Please note that this is strictly not a TM fault as the SMW4 is maintained by a consortium but I have a feeling that TM has not subscribed to sufficient uplinks to successfully failover properly.

SMW4: South East Asia–Middle East–Western Europe 4 (SEA-ME-WE 4) is an optical fibre submarine communications cable system that carries telecommunications between Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Egypt, Italy, Tunisia, Algeria and France.It is intended to be a complement to rather than a replacement for the SEA-WE-ME 3 cable.
The cable is approximately 18,800 kilometres long, and provides the primary Internet backbone between South East Asia, the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and Europe.
