Etisalat confirms the completion of repair of the SE-ME-WE-4 submarine cable and that Internet services have been fully restored.
To provide minimum impact during the cable cut period, Etisalat had acquired additional link capacities and re-routed the traffic to through these links. This meant lots of people were unaffected. Etisalat has invested heavily in building a robust network with multiple redundant links to major global Internet hubs in Asia, Europe, and USA, so that the traffic can be re-routed in such situations to ensure that Internet services can remain operational at reasonable speeds in the UAE.
Now that the cables have been fixed all people should experience the normal uninterrupted connections and a great experience.
