The ongoing damage and devastation in Japan is of epic proportions. The 8.9-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami has claimed the lives of many and destroyed villages along its coast. It is even created a nuclear scare with the possibility of having a meltdown in one the nuclear plants. However, one thing that withstood the ordeal is Internet connectivity.
According to Renesys, only a small fraction of Japan’s Internet connections were affected by this massive catastrophic event. Vital communication systems have not gone down and this has enabled those in Japan to communicate with others in and outside the devastated areas.
