2004/11/09 - Internet Outage
Rhodes has had no national or international connectivity since 5PM last night. This means that users will have difficulty browsing web sites that aren't at other tertiary education institutions in South Africa. The fault has been reported to our upstream providers and they are currently trying to track down the cause. It is no doubt related to the similar outage we experienced on Saturday.

There is no expected time to resolution for this problem at present. Telkom have promised to keep us informed about new developments and we'll pass that information on here.
It appears that the problem was caused by a fault on the ATM circuit between Uitenhage and Cape Town that has now been resolved. Telkom are investigating why it took so long for this error to be noticed and rectified.
