NO Connection.....NO Cable!!

We have experienced internet service disruption on Wednesday. More than 90% of Egyptians couldn't have access to the internet.
AS we know it was due to corruption of the submarine Flag Telecoms(in the Mediterranean sea).
FLAG Telecoms operate the Fiber-Optic Link Around the Globe (FLAG), a 28,000km long submarine communications cable.

the disruption in Egypt caused many problems in other countries in the middle east, India also was affected by this disruption and up to 60% lock.

No figures about how much does the disruption wasts in Egypt, this is normal case as we don't have any statistical engines able to collect numbers and reports fired by any event.
