Southern Cross fibre cut in USA

A large fiber link has been cut on mainland USA, affecting Australian ISPs using Southern Cross for international bandwidth. The break could be affecting a number of ISPs due to its size and popularity. There is currently no ETA available for a repair time.

In 2001, bad luck and timing resulted in a complete outage of Southern Cross, due to a submarine fiber cut while the backup link was down for maintenance.
