From jhb to ct



Also twitch has been terrible for the last week. Can't watch at 1080p60 at all even with 3 threads. Tonight 720p is buffering. Openserve btw.
Yeah, for the first time in ages, I too can't stream anything on Twitch tonight in 1080p either. Buffers a lot, plays for about 2 seconds, then buffers again for 10 seconds. Rinse and repeat.

Something not right somewhere on Openserve, that's for sure :unsure:

Two fibre breaks one on the longhaul route between JHB and CPT, Teraco to Teraco, and a break between IS CPT and Teraco CPT. So both routes affected, we have moved most traffic over to IS but will either need to wait for one of the breaks to be fixed or to make a physical change tomorrow morning, apologies for the interruption!

Serious question but is it minimum wage employees or students managing these connections at teraco ?

How is it possible that 2 seperate backhauls break at the same time ?

One cable failing is reasonable but both at same time. o_0

These are fibre routes running across thousands of KM's of terrestrial cable. It's not people just messing with a patch cable.

The best excuse I ever had (when we were using Telkom for longhaul) was "cows ate the fibre".

Needless to say, we cancelled.

You will be surprised, I just came back from helping repair a fibre break...the cause...a rat got into a manhole :mad:

Mutant rats ? I am not aware of any rat capable of chewing through carbon fibre protected cables.

Unless these cables all run for thousands of KM's in basic plastic insulation ?

Rats eat through concrete.... Anyway, national is restored.

I agree they are impressive critters but I was referring to carbon fibre insulation not concrete, brick or lead. There is a reason carbon fibre is used and not concrete,brick or lead when insulating against extreme conditions. ;-)

Afaik Carbon fibre is harder than the teeth of rats which is why they cant chew through it. They can chew through anything that is softer than their own teeth.

Carbon fibre is 10x more dense than Steel, no rat unless they are from outer space will be able to chew through it.

As a comparison, steel has a tensile modulus of about 29 million psi (200 million kPa). Thus, the strongest carbon fibers are ten times stronger than steel and eight times that of aluminum. The more you know. :p

Anyhow if they chew through the cables then someone is trying to save on cost for some reason and not using carbon fibre insulation or someone did a really crappy insulation job somewhere. :/
