A data center and digital infrastructure company, MainOne, has stated that it has successfully restored internet services to some of its customers across West Africa.

Earlier, MainOne said that its preliminary investigation linked the internet disruptions experienced by Telecoms and banks in Nigeria and some neighbouring countries to an incident on its submarine cable systems offshore the coast of West Africa.

On Saturday, this Medium reported that the company, in its update following the incident, noted that fixing the damaged undersea cable may last five weeks. 

MainOne said it had secured a maintenance agreement with Atlantic Cable Maintenance and Repair Agreement (ACMA) to offer repair services for the submarine cable.

However, in a recent Punch Newspaper report, the company revealed that it was making efforts to restore services to others by utilising capacity acquired on available cable systems.

MainOne said, “We have restored services to some customers and are actively working on restoring services to others via capacity acquired on available cable systems.

“The estimated repair time is for our submarine cable fault to be fixed, to enable our services to become fully restored, and to independently supply capacity to our customers.”
