Damaged undersea cable caused Internet outage in mideast

Due to a fault on a submarine cable located between Alexandria, Egypt, and Palermo, Italy caused Internet disruption in mideast.

ISPs over this region had found alternative routes to solve this problem, but still the internet is very slow.

In Saudi Arabia, some users said Internet was functioning fine but others said it was slow or totally down.

Users in Bahrain and Qatar also complained of slow Internet.
