TransAtlantic Cable Break

  • From: Roderick S. Beck

Well, despite all this talk about the Latin fiber break, the real news is
that one of the TransAtlantic cables has had one of their two cables
severed. Repair is not expected until after the US July 4th holiday.

So none of the customers on that well known system have any ring
protection at this point nor will they during the next two weeks.

This is a lesson for those who put all their eggs in one basket.

This cable system is also a major IP backbone player.

So it shouldn't be too hard to guess their identity.
