New international routes added to boost streaming content

Etisalat has added new international alternative marine cable routes over the last two days, which has significantly enhanced streaming services such as YouTube.

After a sudden cable breakdown in the Mediterranean Sea last week, many Etisalat customers were unaffected thanks to its robust network. With many extra links to global internet hubs in Asia, Europe, and USA Etisalat was able to re-route traffic to ensure that internet services would remain operational in the UAE.

Those who were affected will be pleased to know that the international submarine cable will most likely be fixed by 27th April.
