Repairs begin on cut undersea cables

John is pretty hopped up on this stuff, so I’ll continue the trend. The undersea cables that were cut last week will, hopefully, soon be back up and running. Ships have been deployed to begin repairs and the one nearest the UAE is receiving treatment as we speak. FLAG Telecom, an Indian-owned cable network operator released this statement:

“FLAG repair team is operating in extreme weather conditions to ensure timely repairs.”

Let’s hope that everyone affected will get their Internets back soon because I know I’d be freaking out if I didn’t have access to the Web, telephones, etc.
