SA experiences slow to no internet
TechCentral’s Duncan McLeod says the problem should be resolved by 10pm.
JOHANNESBURG - Maintenance on fibre optic cables in Egypt are causing slow or no internet connection in South Africa.
Seacom manages a 17,000 kilometre undersea fibre broadband cable that connects to places along Africa's eastern coastline, including Mombasa in Kenya and Mtunzini in South Africa.
The cable also has connecting links to Europe and parts of North Africa.
Many internet service providers in South Africa use the Seacom cable to help provide international data capacity to their customers.
TechCentral's Duncan McLeod says the problem should be resolved by 10pm.
"The Seacom cable is one of the international undersea cable systems that provide South Africa with access to the global internet."
