[UPDATE] SEACOM down again

One of my service providers have forwarded me an update to the latest SEACOM outage:

According to the update, SEACOM has sent out notification that they are currently localising the fault from both Mumbai and Dar-es-Salaam (in Tanzania). There seems to be a repeater of theirs that has issues which has resulted in them running the coherent optical reflectometer (COTDR) from both Mumbai and Dar-es-Salaam (literally “The House of Peace”).

Here’s hoping!!!

    MWeb is looking for solutions — Telkom is reserving their bandwidth for FIFA, so they are desparately looking for another source of bandwidth.
    Then again – the longer it takes, the sooner it’s over…
