Internet users across Pakistan face slowdown over likely damage to the submarine cables
ISLAMABAD - Internet users across Pakistan face slowdown over likely damage to the submarine cables.
If you are experiencing slow internet or disconnections, you are not alone. Internet service providers are reporting a technical fault and disruptions in their network, causing problems for customers around Pakistan.
According to an official presser from Stormfiber:
Both of our upstream providers have reported degradation on certain western destinations on their network.
While it is too early to conclude the exact root cause of the issue, we suspect an outage on an international cable segment(s) or route(s) further upstream.
Similarly, Transworld has also issued a statement warning about a similar problem:
Based on customer reports, Nayatel was also experiencing a general slowdown but seems to be back to normal for the time being. The company did not issue any statements.
