[UPDATE] SEACOM down again: A ship, a ship…

New update at 5am SAST: So they have initiated the deployment of the ship to the wet plant. That does not mean, though, that the ship is actually is already on its way – it’s deployment is initiated…

Official communications from SEACOM have been promised to follow…

In addition:

SEACOM’s investigations have revealed that an offshore repeater has failed on the cable’s segment 9, to the north of Mombasa. This unexpected failure affects traffic towards both India and
Europe. Traffic within Africa is not affected.

At SEACOM.mu, they have added a news item:

Cable outage – 5th July 2010 – 5 Jul 2010

We note SEACOM services between Mumbai and Mombasa are down since 9:19 GMT/5th July 10. We are still investigating. More updates to follow.

Sigh…
