The Global Village.....

Internet has been a bit slow the last couple of days here in Dhaka. I would never argue that I am very updated on the latest within information technology, but I have to admit to being a bit surprised to get the follwoing e-mail today from our office internet provider :) What about nanotechnology and satelites?

Dear Valued Subscribers

Greetings from CITech CyberNet Ltd.

The SEA-ME-WE4 submarine cable has been cut in Alexandria of Egypt Wednesday, suspending the BTTB's internet connectivity with the Europe and USA, a BTTB official said.

The BTTB official could not confirm how long it will take to restore the link.

In a statement, the BTTB said the mishap in Alexandria took place at 10:15am Bangladesh time. But the cause of the mishap remains unknown to the authorities. Currently the western hemisphere-bound internet traffic is diverted via Singapore across the Pacific, the official said. But the low capacity of the interim route has caused congestion and slowed the internet speed across Bangladesh.

The mishap at Egypt's Mediterranean coast snapped BTTB's four units of STM4 or 620 megabits per second bandwidth of international internet links.

But the Singapore route is capable of bearing half of the load, the official explained. Both ends of the Suez Canal are infamous for cable cuts due to high maritime traffic. Yet it remains the submarine cable operators'
favourite to link Asia and Africa with the Europe and US, in terms of costs.

"That's why all the neighbours of Bangladesh have connected themselves with the numbers of transpacific submarine networks," a telecoms analyst said.
The telecoms ministry has also been sitting on a similar proposal for three months.

"Bangladesh must have an alternative submarine cable route to span the globe for full redundancy," he said.

"Otherwise, the country will keep suffering from the mishaps such as Alexandria's," the BTTB official said.

Thank you for using CITech CyberNet.s Internet Service and for your cooperation.

And I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it look like some of these remarks come across like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
