Problems: Updating of the SAWDOS Blog, Twitter Messages and accessing Overseas Networks.

Dear MWEB Customer
The Seacom cable, which provides a significant portion of our international capacity, has been damaged off the coast of Egypt in the Mediterranean Sea. Early indications are that it may take up to two weeks to repair the break and restore full capacity. We also have capacity on the WACS cable, which runs up the west coast of Africa, and this is currently able to meet about 45% of our total needs. As a result, most international services will be degraded. We are in ongoing discussions with various operators to secure additional capacity to meet our total requirements until such time as the Seacom cable is fully operational again.

We will keep you updated of any changes to this situation via e-mail, our Facebook page and twitter.
Kind regards
The MWEB Team
