Shortly before 9PM this evening the University lost access to the international Internet. Users will likely experience this outage as an ERR_DNS_FAIL or ERR_CONNECT_FAIL error when trying to access websites hosted overseas (including sites ending in .za that are hosted outside the country).

This outage is as a result of a fibre optic break between Mtunzini & Umhlanga Rocks. Dark Fibre Africa have already dispatched a technician to investigate.
