Sometimes it is better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing.
Starhub is a buyer of bandwidth, hence if it wants to switch due to its bandwidth through Taiwan going down, bandwidth providers will welcome it with open arms. Singtel is on the other hand a bandwidth provider. Now that it has problems, it can purchase bandwidth from its competitors, but I don't suppose that's going to be easy.
the starhub theory might hold water. there are actually two routes in/out of Taiwan. those cables severed are on the south side, while the few fibres on the north of Taiwan are unaffected. telcos that route via that link (or *ahem* have now bought bandwidth on that link) are able to provide connectivity to the US/ Europe via that direction.
Many are culled, few are chosen

digg this slashdot this
December 28, 2006 -- We have received some insider info on the status of damaged submarine cables and the progress made so far.
RNAL (Hong Kong Isolation):
The RNAL cable paths between Busan and TongFuk & Hong Kong - Toucheng Taiwan are still down, this has caused Hong Kong to be isolated from the RNAL cable.
The recovery ship is attempting to get emergency authorization so it can depart in next 12 hours to commence repairs.
APCN System 1:
Due to the multi cables faults in the region it is experiencing great difficulty in restoring the traffic via other cable facilities.
APCN System 2 Segment B5:
This cable is still down resulting in the Taiwan node being isolated.
SMW3 Segment is still down and recovery vessels have been requested.
APCN2 Segment 7 (Tanshui - Shantou) & Segment 3 (Hong Kong - ChongMing):
Vessel CS Retriever will be mobilized for the repair of APCN2 S3 & S7
China-US segment W3 (Shantou - ChongMing) & Segment S1 (Shantou -
The Cable is still down, no further information available at this moment.
FLAG FEA Sub-System 8 (Hong Kong - Shanghai - Korea):
The FLAG cable system is currently mobilizing a recovery vessel.
From the looks of it, its going to be a colder and lonelier Christmas for many geeks out there this season. On the up-side, reports have been trickling in that MMOG games like World of Warcraft, have not been affected by the internet disruption somehow...
Thanks Kichigai and Swakoo for the tipoff.
Try using a proxy server for the time being. I'm on an Australian one, 220.127.116.11 port 3128
able to surf like normal again .
Thanx to capo22 in HWZ for the suggestion.
