ESTIMATED REPAIR DATE CONFIRMED FOR MARINE OUTAGE ON THE SEACOM SUBSEA CABLE – 20 APRIL 13:30 GMT
SEACOM has continued to activate additional diverse restoration capacity to its network today, meaning almost all customers requesting manual restoration now have it. SEACOM has also augmented its managed services platform with additional links so as to alleviate congestion and improve latency.
Repair vessel permits have been obtained which will allow for SEACOM’s repair vessel to arrive at the repair site on the 30th April and the tentative repair date is the 2nd May. Due to the nature of the activity, which largely depends on weather and other sea conditions, the repair window may vary.
SEACOM continues to monitor the situation closely and will provide necessary updates as warranted.
