here are some of the points about the story:
- Telkom unlawfully suspended SDN's backbone (this obviously brought all 
  of SDN's clients down as well)
- Telkom also unlawfully suspended the clients' own circuits, despite 
  the fact that these are paid for directly by the client and do not 
  involve SDN
- Telkom cited non-payment as the reason for suspension of services, 
  despite the fact that when a reconciliation was done, SDN is actually 
  R87, 000 in credit
- SDN's attorneys applied for interim relief against the suspension of 
- at 03h00 this morning, a judge found in favour of SDN and passed a 
  court order for Telkom to turn the services back on
- Telkom defied the court order and did not resume services within the 
  stipulated 2 hours
- Telkom is currently opposing the court order on the basis of 
  jurisdiction, and a decision will be out later today
