Just to play devils advocate here, the sea doesn't reach Joburg where a lot of them "land".
they also have terrestrial legs on the route.
Some of the root causes on NLD's to cape town from JHB over the years has been "cows ate the fibre", "bakkie crashed into a pole".

This is on the Iron-Ore route, supplied by Liquid/Telkom for portions.

Buried fibre like Fibreco/Seacom is barely safer, because of root causes like "bridge washed away", "back-actor dug up the cable".

It's really quite maddening.

In today's case, it was simply a DD provided link between Bree Street (CPT CBD) and Teraco Rondebosch that's borked. Not cows.
 
19 days with CISP and so far its not looking that good with my degraded service experience in the first month. Will see how the next month goes.
 
So, is there no ETA for this to come up? Parklands we still down.

People need to go back and read a few pages.

 
Just check the app settings, it's probably set to just the DNS not the VPN.
Thanks. Do you mean I need to enable "with WARP"? Because I already have that enabled. I tried it with and without WARP. Same difference.

When I connect to the vuma wifi, the Android system itself says there aint no internet, irrespective of whether or not 1.1.1.1 is active.

It never gets past "Updating connection info..." when switching it on.
 
@TheRoDent and @PBCool can you guys maybe use the 2Africa cable when it comes online to carry traffic between CPT and KZN subsea ?

Then you can use KZN - JHB to bachaul as well as CPT - JHB and also CPT - KZN - JHB . That might help add some more resiliency to the NLD's because traffic can flow any direction. Might be difficult to engineer traffic but should be possible.
 
My Gqeberha home on Frogfoot fiber went down at around 20H00 this evening. Anyone else down in PE?

We can use NLD5/6 currently between KZN and CPT, but its super unreliabel.

We are all waiting for that option from 2africa as mentioned it's safer in the sea.
