Best info we have is that there are two outages.  One has existed
for the last 3 weeks or so between Tuckerton (New Jersey) and Bude
(UK).  It takes out the "southern path" across the atlantic.

There is a second outage between Bude (UK) and Katwijk (NL).  For
circuits that landed in London or France this (should have) taken
out the redundant path for those circuits.

Circuits from Tuckerton (New Jersey) or Manasquan (New Jersey) to
Katwijk (NL), Norden (DE), or some city in Denmark who's name I
forget should still be up on the northern path.

So, if you're in London or France your circuits are likely to be
down, however some people in those locations used Contentinal
capacity to link up to Katwijk, in which case they might still be

Both problems are undersea issues, so don't expect speedy resolution
if you are down.
