Waseem Arsany, CEO Of LinkdotNet, the Leading Internet Services Provider, said the outage of submarine cables on Wednesday may affect the internet services throughout the country, pointing out that internet connection will be restored in Cairo, Alexandria and governorates having high population density.
Arsany added to Amwal Al Ghad that the outage which has happened today affected the alternative paths of cables provided by Telecom Egypt (TE) to repair the main cable (etnorth) last Friday.
He noted that internet firms are seeking now to find solutions for the outage of the main and alternative cables within this week, explaining that the current plan is to distribute loads on all governorates.
Arsany has expected that the internet services will return by day-end or within 48 hours.
Telecom Egypt (TE) has witnessed an outage of the main cables, and it has loaded them on an alternative path which weakened internet services nationwide.
