Internet outages across Pakistan after faults develop in submarine cables
ISLAMABAD - Internet outages across Pakistan after faults develop in submarine cables.
Slow internet speed was witnessed as services are impacted due to technical fault in the International Submarine Cable AAE-1 in Doha, the national telecommunication service provider said on Sunday night.
“PTCL in conjunction with the International Submarine Consortium, is working to fully restore internet services across the country,” the Pakistan Telecommunication Limited said in a message on social media.
“We regret the inconvenience caused to our customers and will notify you as soon as the services are fully restored. Thank you for your patience,” it added.
Users faced a major drop in internet speed in October when two major international submarine cables – connecting people to the world – developed technical fault.
The two out of the total six cables – IMEWE (India Middle East Western Europe) and SEAMEWE 4 (South East Asia–Middle East–Western Europe 4) – connecting Pakistan to the world of internet had developed faults.
