2008/09/13 - Unscheduled Internet Outage
About three hours ago, the University lost its access to the Internet. The problem affects other universities in the Eastern Cape (NMMU, Fort Hare, etc) as well as Rhodes .

It was reported to TENET's service desk shortly after 6AM this morning by one of the other affected sites, and they're currently investigating.
We're told that current outage is due to a stolen fibre optic cable in Port Elizabeth. Neotel is currently on site and attempting to replace the missing portion.
