    Oh please...a storm in a teacup. Stuff may be slower due to re-routing. It's not like they are unplugging the cable for 4 days.....

    Agreed, if any ISP is only using 1 submarine cable then they need to suffer. Most ISP's or Operators would have protected services via other submarine cables

    I take it blended bandwidth is not a thing? Speeds may still be same but there may be a decrease in ping and server responsiveness as routing will be longer. I do think this will affect server traffic to the EU though
