The Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) has given assurances that full internet connectivity will be restored later today.
Earlier this morning, the country experienced internet issues as a result of a problem with the international cable connection that connects Trinidad and Tobago to the rest of the world via Curacao. All major providers were affected including TSTT, Digicel and Flow.
TATT says work is ongoing to correct the issue.

The Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) wishes to advise that Internet connectivity to several service providers has been disrupted.
This is an island-wide problem due to a disruption to the international cable link via Curaçao that is affecting Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean. The source of the disruption has been identified and work to restore connectivity is ongoing.
Until such time, subscribers may experience slow browsing and data speeds for Internet access and mobile data where the content resides outside of Trinidad and Tobago.
We have received confirmation that full service will be restored today.
We also wish to advise that the Media notice bearing the TATT’s logo on an Internet outage is old news from 2015 and should be disregarded.
