Bangladesh SEA-ME-WE-4 Users Affected with Cable Cut

 

Millions of users of the submarine cable SEA-ME-WE-4 in Bangladesh were affected after the cable experienced a cut on Wednesday afternoon off the coast of Singapore, Channel News Asia reported.

Managing director of the Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company stated that it may take a week for the system to return to normal.

He added that the cause of the cable cut is unknown, and that the connection was snapped 60 kilometres (40 miles) from the coast of Singapore.

Mr. Akhtaruzzaman Monju, president of Internet Service Providers Association of Bangladesh, was quoted as saying: “Almost all Bangladeshi Internet users are facing difficulties in accessing Internet or sending emails overseas.”

He added: “Work at the garment factories and outsourcing firms have also been disrupted due to the slow connection.”
