The Seacom cable network was successfully repaired on 20 April 2013, and all circuits were restored to the core network as of 23 April 2013. This is according to a press statement by the company.
Seacom experienced a physical cable cut in the Mediterranean Sea on Friday 22 March which caused an outage on the system. This cut has now been restored.
“Our partner network has informed us that the assigned cable ship worked in optimal weather conditions for the duration of their repairs,” Seacom said.
“The cable was quickly lifted, the new cable spliced in, tested and re-laid thanks to close coordination between the ship crew and on-shore support.”
