5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Telecoms and internet services in New Zealand are returning to normal after two fibre cables were damaged on the North Island.

In the first instance, a fibre on a bridge in the Rimutaka area was damaged.

"Services through that fibre were able to be routed through different parts of the network until the second incident occurred in south Taranaki where a post-hole digger damaged a fibre late this morning," New Zealand's telco Telecom said in a statement.

The disruption began at 10.48am (New Zealand time) hitting voice, data, internet and mobile services and even led to the closure of the country's stock exchange.

Telecom services have now been restored, said an apologetic Telecom. ®
