Middle East internet connections are back again!

People, it seems the almost 2 weeks problem over internet cables in Mediterranean sea is almost resolved at the moment.

Since yesterday, I can surf the web and manage my sites as usual without getting disconnections and half loaded web pages.

But the question still remains the same, why everything is so fragile at this time of so called hi-tech era?

I talked to a very knowledgeable person from Renesys.com about the problems and he helped me to understand why while Iran is not enlisted as disconnected due cables problem, we still have such problems, and it seemed it is a matter of routing schemes through countries, and the fact we use a Turkish network (only, possibly) to connect to the outside world.

Lot’s of technical talk, so don’t bother, unless you are a network engineer 🙂
