Sat 3 repaired off Senegal
Repairs have been made to the SAT 3 undersea cable off Senegal.
France Telecom’s cable ship Raymond Croze was dispatched to repair the cable after it developed a fault in the area between the Madeleine Islands and Cape Manuel.
The cable’s protective casing had been damaged due to friction against rocks, resulting in deterioration of service to Sonatel users in December.
The cable has now been repaired and given a protective cast iron casing.
