Whats happened to the internet

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Three major problems with the AAG cable, claiming bandwidth severely curtailed. Cambodia is connected to several undersea links, including the always troublesome AAG gateway cable, which provides significant traffic to Vietnam.

The VN government is quick to blame it on sharks whilst Vietnamese netizens tend to blame the government. Who is right? Maybe a VN government shark?

Yeah, now it's not just the AAG cable (which gets disrupted almost every other month), but two other cable systems as well.

The major problems ALWAYS seem to occur in the sections that Vietnam is responsible for, leading me to believe that their maintenance and also repairs are totally sub-standard.

That shark photo above is from 2014 or 15. Most damage to underwater cables is from shipping anchors and fishing nets, not sharks.
Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?
