The cut on the Sea-ME-We-4 submarine cable between Alexandria and Marseilles, could have an impact on broadband connections in India. Though the cable cut happened on Wednesday, telecom operators, including Bharti Airtel, sent out a warning to subscribers, on Friday, that they may experience a drop in their broadband speeds. Indian operators, including Bharti Airtel and Tata Telecommunications, are part of the Sea-Me-We-4 under-sea cable consortium. So far only operators in the Western Asian region have felt any real impact of the cable cut. There are reports of disruption in services in Bangladesh also. A Bharti Airtel spokesperson said that the warning to subscribers have been sent as a measure of caution although there is no impact in India yet.
