Internet services restored across country after disruption by dual cut in submarine communication cable: PTA

The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority ( PTA) said that internet services have now been restored across the country after a massive disruption triggered by a dual cut in a submarine communications cable system.

As per the latest statement released by a Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) spokesman, the fault in the international submarine cable system has been removed and the internet services have been revived throughout the country.

Earlier, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had said that a dual cut in the terrestrial segment of South East Asia–Middle East–Western Europe 5 — a submarine communications cable system that extends between Singapore and France — had been reported impacting internet services across the country.

It said that the fault had been reported between the cities of Abu Talab and Zafrana in Egypt.

“Alternate arrangements to provide uninterrupted internet services to the users have been made. Work is underway to remove the fault,” it added.
