The repercussions of the cut undersea cables are being felt still. Egypt has had internet service partially restored. For some other Middle East countries, internet and phone services remain disrupted:
“…Egypt says it has been able to restore most of its communications by re-routing services, but other parts of the Middle East remain badly affected.
Experts have warned that it may be days before the fault is fixed and that the knock-on effect could have serious repercussions on regional economies.”
There is no indication as to when the repairs will be completed. It appears to be a tedious process of reconnecting “fibre by fibre”. If you are trying to communicate with countries in that area, there is no assurance that the message will be delivered successfully.
