Etisalat restores internet services after cable cut

30 Apr 2010

The UAE’s incumbent telecoms operator Emirates Telecommunications Corporation (Etisalat) has repaired the damaged SEA-ME-WE 4 submarine cable and restored the company’s internet services in the region, Dow Jones Newswires writes. Internet traffic has been re-routed to the cable, which connects Alexandria in Egypt to the French city of Marseilles. As reported by CommsUpdate, services were disrupted by a cut in the cable earlier this month, forcing Etisalat to work with operators to carry out urgent repairs on the system and re-route traffic to minimise the impact on end-users.
