This issue has apparently been going on for nearly 2 weeks but since it hasn't been resolved they not decide to go public about it

Didn't notice anything until today although perhaps it has more to do with what m1key linked.

i've noticed some slow downs last week or so too [only page loads, torrents still awesome] but find it strange that the article from the national is dated 2010?? am i missing something?

Nope, only that I don't check my news source properly before posting! However this is what I got from IT which I then googled and posted the first thing that came up...

Dear all

Kindly note that we have an issue(very slow response accessing internet/intranet applications) with our internet WAN link from Etisalat since today morning due to backbone submarine cable cut. The issue is not yet resolved and we may continue facing difficulty in accessing all our intranet/internet applications until they restore the services fully as per the latest information from Etisalat. They are also failed to give us an exact time to restore the services back to normal.

You will be informed as soon as we receive any updates from Etisalat.

Correctly dated artice although it mentions the same cable being cut....
