Kenya - Internet users are to experience slow connectivity speeds for about three weeks, following a confirmed fibre optic cable cut affecting The East African Marine System (TEAMS).
In a statement to Capital News, Joel Tanui, the General Manager of TEAMS said undersea cable maintenance company E-Marine will commence repair work on the damaged cable to reduce the downtime and its impact.
Mobile operators Airtel Kenya and Safaricom on Sunday announced that they are working to rectify the situation, by re-routing their Internet traffic to alternative capacities.
