Ask yourself this......

What would be a possible outcome if India lost all internet?

How could this affect the USA or any major country?

Finger-Thin Cables Tie Internet Together

Yet the network itself is fairly resilient. In fact, cables are broken all the time, usually by fishing lines and ship anchors, and few of us notice. It takes a confluence of factors for a cable break to cause an outage.





Egypt is not the only choke point in the global network. The ocean just south of Taiwan proved to be one in December 2006, when an earthquake cut seven of eight cables passing through the area, slowing down communications in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia for months.

I am starting to think either ithe cuts are connected to the new Iranian oil trading that was supposed to start up or cable traffic is being diverted to pass through more closely controlled intelligence monitoring centers.
