Voice, data services affcted by damaged submarine cable restored – NCC



The voice and data service disrupted by the damage to undersea fibre optics along the coasts of Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal have been restored according to the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

Telecoms consumers in Nigeria and other West African countries have been battling poor services from some of the service providers owing to the development but the NCC said the situation has now considerably improved.

“…we are pleased to announce that services have now been restored to approximately 90% of their peak utilization capacities”, NCC’s Director of Public Affairs,  Ruben Mouka said.

 He further said: “All operators who were impacted by the cuts have taken recovery capacity from submarine cables which were not impacted by the cuts, and have thus recovered approximately 90% of their peak utilisation capacities.

“Mobile Network Operators have assured the Commission that data and voice services would operate optimally pending full repairs of the undersea cables as they have managed to activate alternative connectivities to bring back the situation to normalcy.”
