Kacific to provide satellite service during Tonga Cable service outage

Monday 21 January 2019 | 09:14 CET | News
Kacific Broadband Satellites Group has announced that, since 20:30 hours on 20 January, Tonga Cable has been suffering an outage in the submarine cable network that connects the island to the outside world. The outage is ongoing and no timeframe is available for restoration of Tonga Cable's service. The sole international service available is currently provided via a Ku-band satellite network, operated by Kacific Broadband Satellite, and supplied in-country by internet services provider EziNET. This is providing essential connectivity while Tonga Cable carries out repairs.
