MWEB lost international connectivity again today, this time caused by problems at the Neotel data-centre in Midrand For the second day in a row MWEB ADSL subscribers sat without international connectivity. The downtime yesterday was caused by a dual fibre break between MWEB and Neotel, cutting MWEB off from its SEACOM bandwidth.
"The two backhaul links that connect our data centre in Victory Park (where our IPC node in the North terminates) to the Neotel data centre in Midrand have been damaged. The effect is that we lost access to our Seacom bandwidth," said MWEB ISP CEO Derek Hershaw. This downtime lasted for around 90 minutes before connectivity was restored by MWEB’s fibre infrastructure partner Dark Fibre Africa.
