Sea-Me-We-3 Subsea Cable Experiences Fault

Vocus Communications has informed that Sea-Me-We-3 submarine cable between Perth and Singapore has experienced an outage due to a confirmed cable break.

According to the company, the cable should be repaired by October 13, 2017, although the date is “tentative” and could change.

“Customers can expect to see increased latency to Asian destinations until this link is restored,” Vocus said.

The Sea-Me-We-3 cable system spans 39,000 kilometers between Australia, South-East Asia, the Middle East and Western Europe.

The cable was completed in 2000, and is administered by Singtel.
