Cable break

So since the Sea-me-we 3 submarine cable is broken does anyone know or has anyone asked support if this will affect their ability to stream the premier league to people with an optus support subscription.

Re: Cable break

The internet is built to handle individual link failures. The overall bandwidth coming into Australia has decreased and the rerouting will cause some issues with all overseas internet based services. We can only wait and see.

 

I believe the bandwidth will be fully restored within 2 weeks.

Re: Cable break

That's the fix, however backup functionality appears to be restored quicker than that:

 

Converge ICT Solutions noted that it was also activating additional capacity. “We have already added 10Gbps of bandwidth since last week. Earlier this morning, an additional link of the same capacity has been activated. With this, you can expect significant improvements in your internet connection. By next week, we are expecting to activate another 10Gbps of capacity so that your service will finally return to normal,” the company added.
