China Telecom recently experienced a significant outage that lasted nearly eight hours and affected many Western sites and services such as Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Slack, SAP and others.
The network monitoring company ThousandEyes first discovered the outage when its global vantage points began to detect substantial packet loss across China Telecom's backbone for internet traffic both entering and exiting China.
The packet loss continued sporadically over several hours and primarily impacted network infrastructure in mainland china but China Telecom's network in Singapore and in multiple points in the US including Los Angeles.
