GigNet network unaffected by Yucatan electrical blackout

Tuesday 9 April 2019 | 10:50 CET | News
Mexican operator GigNet, the Cancun-based subsidiary of Cobalt Holdings, announced that its recently completed 200-kilometre fibre optic network in the Riviera Maya region continued to perform as designed during a massive electrical service outage that affected the Yucatan Peninsula. The company's new 5,000-square-foot office in Cancun and its network operations centre (NOC) were likewise unaffected by the blackout caused by a sugarcane plantation fire that affected the National Transmission Network of CFE and left more than 85 percent of the Yucatan Peninsula without electricity.
