Re: Fourth cable damaged in Middle Eest (Qatar to UAE)

anyone with a source of unadulterated information from an operational
point of view about this cuts. A search on the Net is springing up a lot
of speculative whodunits.
Reason is, how will the affected regions get round this issue before the
repairs are done. First thought would be to set up satellite links, not
as good but better than nothing.

disconnect iran from the internet, they're doing a lousy job:
An extremely poor job if that was the intent. According to SLAC,
throughput to Iran actually improved.
If the intent was to cut off Iran, they're picking the wrong cables.
TAE goes across the northern part of Iran
FLAG via UAE, SE-ME-WE-3 (not 4), ITOUR and KAFOS
Sometimes concicidences are concidences.
