Taiwan earthquake disrupting Internet

I have been having problems with the Internet connection since early this morning. I found out later that it is due to the Boxing Day earthquake that struck Taiwan. From Starhub:
Dear valued MaxOnline customers

Due to an earthquake in Taiwan yesterday, the undersea cable was disrupted resulting in slow Internet access to some international sites. You can be assured that our topmost priority is to quickly restore services and we have deployed all available resources to address the situation as soon as possible.

Since yesterday, we have started re-routing the affected Internet traffic to other routes. Our engineers have been working round-the-clock and are doing their best to rectify the matter as soon as possible.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience. An update will be provided as soon as we can.

Regards
StarHub Web Administrator
And here's the message from Singnet:
Dear customers, you may experience slow Internet access to overseas websites due to an earthquake that occurred in Taiwan. We are in the midst of restoring our service. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Some websites are still unaccessible now and most are super slow but at least I'm able to access Blogger.
