Undersea Cable Restored: Africa-Asia Link Resumes, Mauritius Telecom Services Return to Normal

Mauritius Telecom has announced a full restoration of internet and TV services after undersea cable repair.

Mauritius Telecom, the leading telecommunications operator in the Indian Ocean island nation, has announced the restoration of internet and television services to normal following a recent “technical problem” with an undersea cable.

The South Africa Far East submarine cable, a crucial link connecting Africa to Asia, has now returned to full capacity, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity for users in Mauritius and neighboring regions.

This development comes as a relief to businesses and residents alike, with SBM Bank also resuming services at ATMs and point-of-sale terminals, mitigating disruptions caused by the cable issue.

The undersea cable network plays a vital role in connecting South Africa, Mauritius, Reunion, India, and Malaysia, facilitating crucial telecommunications and internet services across the region. The prompt resolution of the technical issue underscores the importance of robust infrastructure in maintaining seamless connectivity in today’s interconnected world.
