[Updated] Fibre Cut in New Jersey

A fibre cut in New Jersey is affecting one of our international circuits between Paris and Baltimore.  The cut occured at just after midnight CEST (22:00 UTC).  Our suppliers are working to repair the break, but the local power company must repair damaged electrical infrastructure before the fibre resplicing can commence. 


The current estimate we have from our supplier for a time to repair is approximately 21h00 CEST (19h00 UTC).  We will update this notice regularly as we obtain more information.


Our other circuits are unaffected.


12:30 UTC : Our supplier has indicated that they expect to be able to start initial repair splicing on the severed fibre within the next two hours.


14:45 UTC : Fibre engineers have begun installing replacement fibres in the affected section.  They estimate approximately another three hours to complete resplicing work.
