Four telecom cables under Red Sea cut, affecting 25% of traffic, Hong Kong firm says

Hong Kong-based HGC Global Communications says four of its undersea telecommunications cables beneath the Red Sea have been cut, affecting some 25 percent of traffic.

The company says it is taking steps to mitigate the damage, including rerouting traffic around the globe and distributing other traffic via the 11 still operable cables in the Red Sea.

It’s unclear how Israeli service providers may be affected.

The firm says clients in the Middle East are asking for “contingency rerouting options from Hong Kong networks to West-bound.”
