Internet access to overseas websites disrupted


PETALING JAYA: Local Internet access to overseas websites came to a crawl Wednesday after international links were disrupted by the earthquake in southern Taiwan. 

Internet service provider (ISP) Jaring said the disruption started at about 3.45am Wednesday, and warned users to expect congestion to and from overseas websites during peak hours. 

Internet service provider TM Net said the earthquake caused a fault on Asia Pacific Cable Network 2 links between Shantou, China and Tanshui, Taiwan, and between Lantau in Hong Kong and Chongming, China. 

The disruption has caused outages to several TM Net international transit and peering links. 

TM Net said Malaysian Internet users may experience some delay in accessing content and websites hosted overseas, especially in the United States, Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea and Europe. 

Action is being taken to reduce traffic congestion by diverting traffic through backup links, it added. 

TM Net customers can call 1-300-88-9515 or e-mail custcare@tm.net.my for further enquiries.
