Fault in internet submarine cable: PTA

Islamabad: A fault has been reported in the international submarine cable, SMW4, operated by Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd. (PTCL), in the Indian ocean due to which some internet users may experience downgraded speeds during peak hours.

However, alternate measures to provide uninterrupted internet services to the users have been taken on priority basis to meet capacity requirements including additional adhoc bandwidth in the system.

Work is underway to fully restore internet services at the earliest. Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is monitoring the situation and will continue to update on it. In December, a fault in one of the international submarine cables near Karachi slowed internet speed across the country.

However, alternate arrangements to provide uninterrupted internet services to the users were made by relevant service providers by obtaining additional bandwidth and capacity to meet the requirements.
