FSM and Marshall Is braces for submarine cable outage ..........posted 11Oct16

...the Hantru1 submarine cable serving both the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of Marshall Islands will be taken out of operation beginning October 31st 2016, and expected to be back in normal operation by November 09th 2016.

In a public release emergency announcement to its customers by FSM Telecom, it cited that a power anomaly had been detected necessitating the emergency repair, and will be affecting internet services and TV channels streamed over the internet.

The notice said that while mitigating measures will be taken to lessen the impact such as using satellite back up services for connectivity, customers will experience slower than usual internet speeds and possibly voice quality degradation. It appealed to customers to minimise internet usage to essentials, use emails and messaging and avoid streaming videos during this time of repair.

PITA extends its best wishes to both Telecoms of FSM and Marshall Is for quick recovery and return to normalcy
