du hit by cable cuts

A number of subsea cable cuts took place around Egypt last weekend, with du customers’ thought to be worst affected, according to local reports.

The UAE operator allegedly said that customers may face a temporarily slow service while repairs are carried out.

In a statement, du said that it had prioritised the fixing of the cables and would be in constant contact with the subsea cable system providers.

A senior official told reporters that every attempt had been made to re-route traffic via alternate cable systems to minimise the impact.
