Undersea Cable Cut Disruption Almost Fully Resolved - Telcos

In a surprising turn of events, telecom and banking services in Nigeria and parts of Africa, which were disrupted due to an undersea cable cut, are now almost fully restored, contrary to earlier expectations of a two-week outage.

Telecom companies in Nigeria, the most affected by the disruption, have confessed to Vanguard that services are now over 90% restored, thanks to the tireless efforts of engineers who worked around the clock to minimize the duration of the disruption.

Engr Gbenga Adebayo, Chairman of the Licensed Telecom Operators in Nigeria (ALTON), exclusively confirmed that any remaining disruptions are likely due to backlog congestion caused by the initial cut.

He assured that significant investments were made in service restoration, and the industry is nearly out of the woods.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), the regulatory body, echoed these sentiments, confirming in a statement released by its Director of Public Affairs, Mr Reuben Muoka, that services have been restored to approximately 90% of peak utilization capacities.

This swift resolution comes as a relief to both businesses and consumers who rely heavily on telecom and banking services for day-to-day operations.
