For thoses that are affected by the fiber outage that currently takes
place in Montreal, I've got some clues.

It could take some time to repair, as they are currently trying
to localise the failure location. The SRDP ( is
working with the CSEM ( to fix this.

UPDATE: they now know where the fibers were cut, and the SRDP is expecting the
links to be up in 60-120 minutes.

The outage almost isolate the datacentre Canix II from the Internet
since today, 5:35PM, and Cogent ( was affected
also. Maybe others.
