The WACS (West Africa Cable System) undersea cable, which is critical to South Africa connection with the world, is broken again.

TENET, which is the operating partner of the South African national research & education network (SA NREN), said it detected the break by 23:28 last night.

This will have an impact on South African Internet users.

The last time South Africa was affected by a major cable break was in January, which also involved the WACS international link going down.
