Internet service speeds in the UAE have been “restored to complete normalcy” according to Etisalat’s internet arm, eCompany.

The company today announced that uniform fast internet speeds are available, following the repair of the undersea Sea-Me-We 3 cable by its operator.

A second undersea cable that was also affected earlier this month had already been repaired a few days previously.

Both cables were originally disrupted after storms off the coast of Mumbai, India, which Etisalat was told by cable operators had led to two ships sinking and breaking both cables.
