REPAIRS TO CABLE CONTINUE
JOHANNESBURG — Cable company Seacom was still working on repairing the damaged undersea cables that had disrupted Internet services, a statement on its website said yesterday.
Internet service providers have been reporting cuts to their systems since March 22 and Seacom has had to reroute its disrupted lines. International Internet connectivity between sub-Saharan Africa and Europe has largely been affected.
In the statement Seacom said it was restoring transmission to affected customers.
“We again apologise to those customers who continue to be impacted following the further fault on the restoration system SMW4,” said Seacom. Earlier in the week, three divers were arrested for cutting Seacom cables in Egypt. — Sapa.
