At 1 am, 10 Jan, It seems that one of Slingshot international links changed again. Because it was hard to access a China website and latency looked extremely higher than normal . Please notify us if Slingshot adjusts something.

Mickey007: It had happened before between late Sep 2012 to late Dec 2012. Why it usually happens? Do you have back up plans to solve this latency during these terrible weeks? It is a really tragic impact.


I'm not sure if you understand the implication of a major submarine cable being cut.

It means that traffic is being redirected via alternate routes which is the backup. As for latency that's the result of alternate routes, there is no fix for this unless you know how to redefine the laws of physics and change the speed of light.
