Hopefully this will give all ISPs and networks enough time to organise backup bandwidth to pull them through the downtime.

"The reason for this postponement has not been communicated by SEACOM."
My guess is the current upheaval in Egypt.

my vote is on the possibility that they connected something wrong or missed some country out hahaha

As other posters have said, the political instability in Egypt is probably a greater emergency right now. The guys doing the cable maintenance probably don't want to go in there, and I don't exactly blame them. ;)

Not an ermergy any more since Egypt (country with highest traffic profile in Africa) is not passing traffic through the cable.
