Internet China Slowly Back Up

The internet is slowly getting back up to speed in China. It will take at least until the 15th of January 2007 to have things back to normal according to the state media. A internet black out like the one that happened this past week made me realize how it must be when the only information resources are mainland papers.

It’s a very limited, scary world I must say. It took the China Daily and the People’s Daily more than a day to even mention the fact that the Internet was down. In that sense the Shanghai Daily was more informative.

The fact that Chinese Telecom companies were slow in re-routing traffic and apparently having no apparent back up plans available worries me even more. China thinks it’s advanced but this quake showed there is still some way to go, a long way.

Wish you all a great 2007 and even more, uninterrupted internet access…

    Oh yes… the internet was terrible for the last few days. I actually stopped all online activities due to slow response and inaccessibility.

    Therefore, thanks for the wish… uninterrupted internet access is compulsory. At least I won’t feel like a loss puppy in this big land (i.e. China). :)

    Happy 2007 to you too!
