du has announced that its FLAG undersea cable between Dubai and Oman, which was cut last week, has been repaired.

The telecoms operator said that its customers experienced very little service disruption during the period that the cable was down.

"We are happy to report that there was no impact on speed and internet browsing experience except for the first hour after the cable cut, prior to diverting traffic from the affected cables. We also have a standard contingency provisioning of 20 - 30% of internet capacity which helped prevent any impact on internet usage," read a statement from du.
