Digital infrastructure company, MainOne, has announced the successful restoration of services for a portion of its customers.

The company said it was making moves to restore services for others by utilising capacity acquired on available cable systems.

The company disclosed this in an update shared with PUNCH Online on Saturday.

“The estimated repair time is for our submarine cable fault to be fixed, to enable our services to become fully restored, and to independently supply capacity to our customers,” MainOne said.

On Thursday, cuts to the undersea cable supplying Internet connectivity to Nigeria and countries in the West African sub-region led to a significant degradation of data services.

MainOne provides connectivity and hybrid cloud solutions to commercial and microfinance institutions, including ISPs, government agencies, small to large enterprises, and educational institutions.

On Friday, the service provider revealed that it had a maintenance agreement with Atlantic Cable Maintenance and Repair Agreement to provide repair services for its submarine cable.

It said the repair process for its damaged submarine cable may take up to five weeks.

With MainOne’s infrastructure crucial to banking operations, major financial institutions are seeking alternative solutions to ensure uninterrupted banking activities in the country amidst the service disruption.
