Damaged Wacs cable only likely to be fixed on 8 February


The Wacs cable, one of two cable systems damaged earlier this month due to a suspected undersea earthquake, will probably only be fixed on 8 February. That’s according to Tenet, the Tertiary Education and Research Network of South Africa, which operates the National Research and Education Network in the country’s higher education sector. In a tweet on Monday, Tenet said the repair ship, the Leon Thevenin, is on its way to the location of the Wacs cable break.
