A cable break on the terrestrial part of the EIG cable in Egypt caused problems for some WIOCC customers yesterday, but these problems were resolved.

Chris Wood, CEO of WIOCC, told MyBroadband that the cable break on EIG cable in Egypt has been repaired and that all services are now fully operational.

Terrestrial cable breaks in Egypt have been a problem for both EASSy and SEACOM customers in the past, causing downtime unrelated to the undersea cable systems themselves.
