I guess this is a lesson in the value of redundancy.

The Chittagong-Cox’s Bazar fibre optic transmission link with the country’s only submarine cable was back up after about 10 hours of disruptions through Monday, an official with the BTTB said.

The breakdown of the link created “congestion” in the overseas phone and disrupted internet services.

The transmission link came back up at 00:25am Tuesday after it snapped at 2:30pm Monday, according to Bangladesh Telegraph and Telephone Board.

In a statement, BTTB said the link snapped at Chokoria, some 120 kilometres off Chittagong towards Cox’s Bazar, the second time it has gone down with in a week.
