From what I see, they're going back to Liquid or IS. This is gonna be fun.
Nope. Currently have a very limited liquid link for only certain services. Temp Seacom bandwidth coming online soon but probably via a transit provider maybe IS not sure.

UPDATE REGARDING INTERNATIONAL SPEEDS:
We have purchased additional international bandwidth on other undersea cables to restore internet services to as close to normal as possible. This is in addition to our existing failover capacity. This means that we will not be reliant on repairs to the damaged cables to deliver better international speeds and latency. Our team are currently working through the night to implement the additional capacity this evening or early tomorrow morning.
Glad to hear, good of AH and thanks for updating us.

Whatever they do, I hope it mitigates the sh#tshow

Probably will. I still feel bad for Telkom users though. I doubt Telkom will buy additional capacity from any other transit provider except their own and since their own can't get anymore on EASSY they are screwed.

Yeah Seacom capacity should come online soon.
My ISP uses Seacom. Internationally hosted IPTV still fine, no issues with streaming internationally. Speed tests to London still holding up at close to line speed. Ping to Coreix London have gone from 147ms to about 200ms (in Cape Town).Torrents, if well seeded, also still at full line speed.

This right here, this will mean more to people than you know. Actually making a plan and on a Sunday of all things is what makes you stand out from the other ISP's.

Will Axxess customers also benefit from this?

Durban gone dead here now, VPN, WARP, normal AH.... pings show traffic going through Telkom routing now when checking on AH. Interesting. On VPN its got bad international connection then on WARP its showing seacom but struggling still in Durban at dbn-os2.ip.adsl.co.za with over 30% packet loss. Edit: Make that 60% packet loss and climbing cap'n. Dunt noo if she cun hooold much lunger. Ok a little longer seems like AH straight seems to be working a little better now. Guess just to wait till they finished with what they doing and hopefully things start working again. 82% packet loss on the dbn-os2 and 30% PL on 10.189.30.13.

Hmm... London speed test without using a VPN:



Not too bad. At least things are fine for general use.

All my international traffic still appears to be going via Telkom and most sites still don't load - need to turn vpn on.

speedtest.net does not even load for me.
