Cable Break Weather Related
Tuesday, July 28, 2015
IT&E has Investigated the cause of the under sea fiber cable breakage and has concluded that the break was the result of harsh conditions brought on by a series of typhoons in the region.
IT&E crews along with a subcontractor repaired the cable break on Sunday, and have been restoring circuits and traffic back to the cable since early Monday morning. Full migration of all circuits and traffic back to the cable is expected by early morning Wednesday, July 29th.
The initial migrations brought high-speed Internet service back to Saipan. Customers may experience temporary service interruptions as the migrations continue and IT&E restores the network to 100% capacity.
IT&E will continue to provide updates on the repair efforts as they become available.
