Internet services restored across Pakistan after submarine cable outage: PTCL

The internet services got restored back in Pakistan today, after the interruption caused by the fault in the undersea internet cable.

The fault in the worldwide submarine cable system, IMEWE, has been rectified and internet services have been fully restored in Pakistan.

According to an official of the Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL), internet services have been restored across the country after the global company dealing with the undersea cable fixed the fault.

Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) Chief Business Development Officer Sikander Naqi told Dawn that the disruption was caused by cuts in a PTCL cable, but the company had succeeded in restoring internet services across the country.

"The global consortium has identified the fault in IMEWE cable near Saudi Arabia and is now working to resolve the issue", PTCL tweeted earlier today.

According to Mr Janjua, Pakistan suffered more as two other submarine cables - SEA-ME-WE 4 and Transworld - are still being fixed after they were damaged in July.

In order to minimize the service impact, PTCL has undertaken necessary measures to arrange additional/alternate bandwidth through its other cable systems and global cable business partners, he further pointed out. Six cables are good enough for Pakistan. Available on Android and IOS.
