The submarine cable consortium started its repeater replacement work on the 6th August; and yesterday they completed their work with the power reconfiguration of the cable.

Satellite based telephone communication and internet was active during the blackout.

Repeater is a device which regenerates electrical or optical signal of a cable after certain distance, because it becomes so weak after traveling long distance.

A repeater in the sea between Singapore and Malaysia needed replacement, so repair work was done. It was informed before, that there will be a disruption before activating an alternative line. So users were prepared.
