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.

Its the name used for gypsies in East Anglia. Pikeys is used as an insult. I have no idea where the words originated

I looked it up, not so complimentary:
diddycoy
Originally a Romani term of respect (dadika) for an older person, this has come to mean (in UK English) a Gypsy or traveller who is not of pure blood. The insult is therefore compounded, not only does this person have the negative qualities that prejudice has associated with travellers, but they are also of suspect descent, doubly damned.
they're not even proper gyppos, they're fucking diddikois

not sure where Cambodia gets its internet, BUT if its from Vietnam, soon ur problems might be solved
Vietnam can look forward to faster internet service by early next month as repair work on three undersea cables is completed.

A local internet service provider said repair work on the S1H branch of the disaster-prone Asia America Gateway (AAG), which suffered a disruption in the section connecting to Ho Chi Minh City, about 163 kilometers from the shore off Vung Tau, was completed on Thursday.

Repair of the S1I branch connecting Vietnam and Hong Kong, which experienced a breakdown on December 22, slowing down internet speed on international websites, is expected to be completed next Wednesday.
......
Connected in November 2009, the $560-million AAG handles more than 60 percent of the country’s international internet traffic. The system runs more than 20,000 kilometers (12,420 miles), connecting Southeast Asia and the U.S., passing through Brunei, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

The AAE-1 is a 25,000 km submarine communications cable system from Southeast Asia to Europe across Egypt, connecting Hong Kong, Vietnam and other parts of Asia.

The 6,800km (4,225 miles) IA cable was installed in November 2009, connecting Vietnam, Singapore, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and Japan.
