This is my first post on this list.

Does anyone on the list knows what happened with the ARCOS submarine cable
last night?

Last night at 07H14PM Two out of the Three ISP from HAITI connected to the
internet backbone on the ARCOS submarine cable through the Dominican
Republic at Puerto Plata, experienced a complete outage of internet
The connectivity was re-established at 10H46PM when the traffic was
re-routed through the Antillas submarine cable through Puerto Rico.

As we have no direct contact with ARCOS and are buying internet connectivity
through operators in the Dominican Republic, it is difficult to obtain clear
information as to what exactly happened and or what is the problem.

Any info is appreciated.
