Major Internet Outage in the Philippines? Google, Facebook Down

(UPDATE 2): PLDT released a statement to the ongoing internet problem:

One of our submarine cable partners confirms a loss in some of its internet bandwidth capacity, and thus causing slower internet browsing. We are now working with our partners to provide alternate capacity that would restore the browsing experience in the next few hours.

(UPDATE 1): Looks like more sites are affected by this major internet outage in the Philippines. Here’s the data from Downdetector as of 440pm:


(ORIGINAL STORY) If you noticed that your internet is slow lately, it seems that there’s a major outage in the Philippines that has affected major sites like Google, YouTube, Gmail, and Facebook. According to at around 4:20pm several sites like Google and YouTube are down, while PLDT and Smart appear to have connection issues.

We’ve tried to use our PLDT connection, and while it does fine with downloading a game update, the connection is barely usable for web browsing. We don’t know what’s causing the major outage in the Philippines that’s causing internet providers and platforms like Google to be down at the moment.
