Wikipedia Offline for Hours Due to Cable Snap

 

Wikipedia spent hours offline Monday. This time, however, the "down time" wasn´t intentional as two crucial cables were cut.

Network connectivity between its two data centers - in Virginia and Florida - had disappeared due to the slashed cables. Meanwhile, the problem has been fixed.

Earlier this year Wikipedia had been unavailable to users because the online encyclopaedia joined the protest against anti-piracy laws.
