Reply To: Lightning affects PCCW Broadband service on Cheung Chau?

Martin Williams
It’s been quite some time since June, yet rather few thunderstorms during the period, and my Broadband service has been fine.


But last night, there were thunderstorms to west and southwest, and again found that my PCCW Broadband service became intermittent: Internet connection often breaking, taking a few seconds to return; and Now TV freezing at times.

Again, happening even though lightning was not over or even real close to Cheung Chau – this map from HK Observatory shows main lightning locations during periods when broadband was often halting.
