Internet Will Be Slow Until November 6th

Post by Mark

Minister of Communications said Tuesday GBI company would be carrying out maintenance to the underwater internet cable in the Arabian Sea on November 2-6, which would affect internet service in Kuwait and GCC countries.

The ministry, in a brief statement, urged local internet providers in Kuwait to seek alternative international cables during the maintenance period to prevent slow service. [Source]

Just an FYI in case your internet provider starts blaming sharks again.

    Can it get slower?
    I have tried zain viva and oredoo from egaila all at the same time they all are slow sometimes I go to 3g to increase the speed! I seldom get better than 3 meg from 2pm to well after 2 am.


    I miss my 60 meg constant connection in the country (not in town) back home

    It’s been slow for a while on Qualitynet. Maybe it’s just me.

    GBI have come out with a press release stating that their maintenance work will not affect internet speeds. Like you said, internet has been crap for a few weeks now.
