Internet Disruptions: NCA Says All Repair Works on Undersea Cable Cuts Completed

In March, Ghana and 12 other West African nations were hit by a major internet outage caused by disruptions to undersea cables

The National Communication Authority (NCA) says all repair works on four undersea internet cables that caused the March 14 internet blackout have been completed.

In a statement on Wednesday, May 22, concluding its last update since repair works on the disrupted cables began, the NCA said it has issued “further directives to mobile and subsea cable service providers in a bid to strengthen its regulatory oversight.”

Subsea cable service provider, SAT3 was the first to complete its repairs to its damaged submarine cable on April 6. Another cable service provider, MainOne, also completed the last of its cable cuts on May 8.
