Ship begins underwater cable repairs

The cable ship Pacific Guardian, pictured here Sunday, has begun repair work on the Cayman Islands’ primary communications link, the Maya-1 cable. Nearly two months since a shunt fault on the submarine cable system caused significant Internet connection issues across the island, the source of the problem has been located about 476 feet off the coast of Grand Cayman, near Half Moon Bay in East End. The work is expected to last through Tuesday. – Photo: Chris Court
