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.

My IT manager told me that a sea cable had broken. Internet in Vietnam is also very slow; I do not know how much of the data in Cambodia still goes through Vietnam.

combination of more tourist using up the band width and kids out of school

If the cable broke, wouldn't it stop working? or they redirected the traffic elsewhere and that of course would mean slower speeds

How many times have I heard this ''' Broken Cable '' story. Now if someone told me it was because the KGB , or FBI were busy inserting bugs into the line, now that's a story I would believe.

I assume you are in windows..

Hit the wind key and type in cmd.

When the black box opens (command prompt) type, ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig/flushdns

It's good to do this every week or so, especially when you hop around connecting to a lot of different wifi networks.
