Telenor blames Finnmark telecoms blackout on double submarine cable break

Tuesday 11 December 2018 | 14:16 CET | News
Telenor Norway said it has submitted a report to national communications regulator Nkom concerning the service loss in northerly Finnmark at the end of November, which it blamed on two simultaneous cable breaks. One break happened at around 20:00 hrs on 28 November on the cable between Hammerfest and Gjesvaer, and the other in the Vadso area on 30 November. The second occurred during planned engineering work that was intended to improve infrastructure, but instead, led to a misconnection.
