it seems seamewe3 cable break still hasn't been fixed.

wikipedia says:
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SEA-ME-WE_3)

On 10 January 2013, the cable was again severed, this time 1,126 kilometres from the Tuas cable station in Singapore, between repeaters 345 and 346.[10] Singtel have sent a repair ship to the site, expected to arrive in early February. A permit is required from the Indonesian Authorities to effect repairs, as at 3 March 2013 it was reported that "The cable ship operator has advised that the required permit to undertake works has not been granted. A tentative repair date is still unavailable."[11]

With people saying that Australia connectivity is important etc, it seems more significant to me that Singapore connectivity is still not redundant, and that the path taken is longer.

I wonder if Pacific Fibre went through how long cable break would take to fix.

That sounds poorly planned. Surely when these cables are laid you'd consider these possibilities and have pre approved consents in place for accessing any part of the cable?

At the prices they'd be charging for capacity on the cable wouldn't they have to provide considerable credits to the service providers?

Zeon: Still broken?! Lol imagine if this were the southern cross cable...


Southern Cross has a redundant design, so we probably wouldn't notice. Total bandwidth available would be reduced by half, but I don't know if they only sell full protected capacity or "best effort" capacity as well.

I am fairly sure SCCN offer both, but fully protected is "highly recommended" for obvious reasons.
