Syria's Undersea Cable Repairs Will Take Down 60% of Nation's Internet for Close to 10 days

Syrian Telecom has announced that 60 percent of the country's Internet will be down for close to ten days, starting Wednesday. According to the statement, the outage is due to undersea cable repairs on international service lines. The announcement comes several days after a Russian ship purported to be equipped with cable-cutting technology was spotted moving in a northern track towards Syria. Syrian Telecom says it is working with international operators to secure international alternative paths as part of the plan to bring Internet back up and to normal speeds.
