Telecom cable cut-off reminds the OSPs their physical reality

If an service provider naively believes that it can avoid the regulation of the physical world by merely operating in visual reality, the undersea fiber-optic cable cut-off by a strong earthquake near Southern Taiwan Ocean proves their miscalculation. The cut-off nearly paralyzes or significantly slows down the Internet and telecom communications between Mainland, TW, HK, MO, South East Asia and USA. Interestingly, a Chinese officially media vehemently reported that those service providers (Yahoo! MSN) that deliberately place all their servers outside China to shield from Chinese regulation are hit most seriously in this accident, while the foreign services that have at least one local server (Google) may maintain normal operation. This accident also prove that visual localization may be a good commercial tactic, because the websites under the China’s country-code domain (CN) are not affected, though many sites under gTLDs suffer.
