Internet & Networking Though the cause is still unknown, three of the four undersea Internet cables that run from North America to Asia were cut, causing outages in Egypt, India, Saudi Arabia, and a dozen or so other countries. That is a lot of angry World of Warcraft players. It's supposed to have been from ships' anchors, though even two downed cables at one time is very rare, so who's to say it wasn't sabotage?

From a ISP standpoint it has not decreased, however it would be nice to block the IP blocks from Asia and Africa and I bet it would drop by 85% at least.
