JT says first damaged submarine cable is repaired

Wednesday 7 December 2016 | 09:14 CET | News
Jersey Telecom (JT) said that the first of three cables cut by a ship's anchor last week has been repaired by CS Wave Sentinel. JT is now working with BT and Sure to bring the cable back into service. The CS Wave Sentinel will move to repair the second damaged cable, located some 100 km away. A second cable ship, Pierre de Fermat, has already started to repair the final damaged cable. JT expects all the work to be completed by early next week, with further resilience and capacity restored at that point.
