Vocus has confirmed a break in the South East Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 3 (Sea-Me-We 3) submarine cable between Perth and Singapore. The Sea-Me-We 3 submarine cable is currently down, and until the link is restored, customers can expect to experience increased latency to Asian destinations, Vocus says.
The company did not detail the cause of the break, but stated in an incident summary that it hopes to complete repairs by October 13, although the date is subject to change due to the cable break’s nature.
