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.
