The Seacom cable was cut on 22 March, resulting in slower Internet services across the continent. Services are now expected to improve following repairs to the cable.

"We apologise for the impact these multiple cable cuts have caused over the past eight days," Seacom CEO, Mark Simpson was quoted as saying by Rwanda's The New Times.

"The work done by the Seacom team and our global partners to achieve a massive manual restoration task at a time of much disruption has been outstanding."
