How is Cyclone Vardah Causing Slow Mobile Internet Issues?
Now you know that Cyclone Vardah is the cause of the slow mobile internet issues you are facing from past few days. Let me tell you how this cyclone is affecting your internet speed and why it is affecting.
This cyclone has hit the south-east coast of India i.e. Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, this has affected a lot in Chennai. And let me tell you one thing that Chennai play a major role when it comes to internet connectivity in our country.
Undersea cables are used to connect us to the internet and many undersea cables which help us Indians to get connected with internet come and land at Chennai.
These undersea cables are damaged by this cyclone Vardah which is the major cause of the slow mobile internet in India. As these undersea cables are damaged many telecom companies and internet service providers have sent a message telling their customers that they may face slow mobile internet issues.
Vodafone India gave a statement to their customers which you can find below.
“We are experiencing challenges in fibre media backbone in Chennai due to this phenomenon and as a result internet traffic moving via Trans-Pacific Route may get impacted. This may result in intermittent degradation of services on our Internet Links.”
Not only Vodafone but also Bharti Airtel gave a statement to their customers, I have mentioned it below.
“Dear Customer, the cyclone in Chennai has impacted one of our undersea network cables which may affect your internet speeds. We deeply regret the inconvenience. Our engineers are working to resolve the issue and services will be normalised shortly.”
