Summary:
Our fiber provider needs to move the fiber connection between BIT-1 and Equinix AM7 due to drilling and ground works. The fiber will be cut, moved and then reconnected. Traffic between the BIT network and the internet using this specific link will be moved automatically to alternative paths.

Details:
Our fiber provider received notice from authorities that ground works and drilling will commence shortly. This puts the fiber in its current location at high risk of being damaged.
