Problems with SAMDPR Livestream
Over the last week or so we have been experiencing continued problems with our internet connectivity. This has been due a major undersea cable break affecting all internet connectivity in Southern Africa. Strong winds in the Cape province prevented the repair ship from leaving and affecting repairs.
The break in the cable has resulted in major disruptions in international internet traffic from South Africa . This has not effected our web site and result publications, but has resulted in a problem with the live stream connection being too unstable to stream live video.
We are in the process of putting backup systems in place for the main race on 1 February 2020, but cannot guarantee there will not be breaks in the transmission. We apologize for this but it beyond our control.
The repair ship has now, according to reports, left to affect repairs but no time for completion has been given as yet and we hope that the race live stream will continue with minimal disruption.
Thank you for your understanding.
