Rabat – Maroc Telecom announced on Wednesday that as part of the regular maintenance of network infrastructure, a voluntary cut of the Atlas Offshore submarine cable, connecting Asilah to Marseille, took place last Friday for a return to service scheduled for Wednesday.
“As part of the regular maintenance of network infrastructures, a voluntary cut of the Atlas Offshore submarine cable, connecting Asilah to Marseille, took place on Friday 19/02/2021 for a return to service scheduled for 25/02/2021 “, indicates the operator in a press release.
