We are having severe power problems at our pop due to negligence of the landlord and pressure from desco.
We have currently installed a generator but unfortunately there will be a short downtime when power goes.
We are looking for a new pop, preferably in block A, should any of you can provide us space and possibly power, we will move. We are obviously willing to pay rent. We are hopeful you can help.
Thank you for your patience and we apologise for the inconvenience.

Our primary upstream provider's SMW5 and BTCL links are down, and as mentioned before, the SMW4 maintenance work is still ongoing. So there is congestion on the upstream provider's link, so you shall face severely degraded service for the time being. We are communicating and working with our provider to get the problem fixed as soon as possible. We ask for your patience and understanding.
