    Sorry guys
    We'll hopefully have this sorted out as soon as possible.

    Will have this thread updated as soon as we get any feedback from our upstream guys. Updates until now, can be found on our forums, linked in the article.

    Is everything impacted or is it like when SEACOM breaks you can buy 1GB of overpriced WA bandwidth and be fine?

    Can anyone confirm if business accounts at the various ISPs have been impacted?

    MWEB, Afrihost, WebAfrica? If they are impacted, then so much for the promise of redundancy and better uptime in exchange for more of our money.

    Our Business accounts will see slight latency increases, however priority is given to Business accounts during times like these.
    Impact should be absolutely minimal on the Business side.

    Give a brother a VPN link to your office? Just want to use the gateway on your network....

    Does the R69/GB WebAfrica accounts also have this problem? Need to know before I top-up in hopes of it working.
