Damaged SAT-3 cable fixed - Internet service to West Africa restored
| August 19, 2009
A damaged SAT 3 cable that had caused a major blackout of internet services across West Africa has been repaired. The damage had disabled about 70% of Nigeria's bandwidth and had causing severe problems for users all around the country. Togo, Niger and Benin also had disruptions. A ship from South Africa had to be diverted to repair the fault and it arrived in Cotonou, Benin on Saturday and carried out repairs on Sunday. SAT-3 is currently the only fibre optic cable serving West Africa but two new cables are planned - Main One cable expected to be completed in 2010 and West Africa Cable System (WACS) due in 2011.
