Google Services, Facebook outage in Bhutan
Starting at around 8pm this evening, it seems that broadband and mobile users in Bhutan cannot access many Google services, including Search, Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Sites, Google Apps, and more. Blogger is also out, so many popular blogs - including this one - are currently not accessible. And, worst of all: Facebook seems to be inaccessible as well!
Good thing Bhutan's economy is not ICT-centric, or the financial consequences of such an outage would be substantial.
Update: At around 10pm, the problem seems to have been fixed. It would be nice to get an update from Bhutan Telecom regarding the causes of this major outage.
