Thailand’s net mess

Thailand's net mess - February 25, 2002
In case you had not heard, in-country connection to the Internet is still at a crawl since an undersea cable was severed on February 21. If you want a net connection here you have to buy it from an ISP that has to buy their connection from a government monopoly (CAT) that charges an outrageous markup. This monopoly is housed in a massive complex outside of town that can only be compared to Versailles. The CAT decided that no backup was necessary for Thailand's net access and now businesses that depend on the net are at a standstill. Best case scenarios point to the end of the week before things get back to normal.
