    10% of NZ International Capacity Drops - Oops, Who Forgot to Test the Switch Upgrade

    Southern Cross Cable fault alleged | Stuff.co.nz

    The operators of the Southern Cross Cable are playing down an incident at its Alexandria cable landing station in New South Wales overnight that it said affected 10 per cent of the cable's "active capacity".

    Services to some customers were impacted for just over an hour, but restored by 4.28am, it said in a statement.

    Labour Party communications spokeswoman Clare Curran said she learnt a "catastrophic failure" occurred that demonstrated the need for extra diversity in international communication links to and from New Zealand.

    The cable forms a "figure of eight" loop, connecting New Zealand and Australia to the United States west coast via Hawaii.

    Curran said the failure was caused by an "unauthorised and un-notified software change" which "blew up" and was still being resolved.
    Um, fail. This is what happens when a whole country has one decent fibre link, and the mid point is in Australia

    It would be good to have more than the one provider of decent bandwidth for the whole country though.
