for several hours 98% of the internet and phones are cut due to earthquake in taiwan. the fibercable under sea is cut. it will be fixed within 2-3 weeks. during that period, only 20-30% the internet can be used, so a lot of lost transactions.. i remember seeing somebody trading on a boat to avoid tax. i wonder the price to use it, and if it is global or only for America, Europe, or Asia... I assume ONE satellite can only cover certain areas of the earth.
