The Asia Pacific Cable Network (APCN) said it recently suffered two fiber breaks in the areas between Taiwan-Japan and China-Korea. ?This has impacted on telecoms traffic in a large area of the Asia Pacific region, including the Philippines. As a result, this may affect your data service,? PLDT said in an advisory. The APCN has a landing site in Batangas from where PLDT connects to the fiber-optic network. A spokesperson from PLDT said the breaks in the cable system have already been spotted and that intensive restoration efforts are now being undertaken. ?In the meantime, we have re-routed voice and data traffic to two other international cable systems — the Asia-America Gateway and the Asia Submarine Cable Express,? the carrier said. ]]>
