South Africans can expect continued slow Internet speeds when connecting to international websites in the week ahead. The slow speeds are due to cable breaks in international links which service the country – the WACS and SAT3/WASC systems. According to the Tertiary Education and Research Network of South Africa (TENET), the ship which is tasked with repairing the breaks has not been able to leave Cape Town harbour.
