(Islamabad: 26th March, 2020): According to information being collected from telecom operators by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), a net increase of around 15% in internet usage was witnessed since last week as the country fights against Corona virus.
The increase has been observed due to increased online activities by educational institutions and businesses and, ‘work from home’ policy adopted by individuals and organizations.
There is sufficient internet capacity available in the country to meet the growing demands of the future. PTA has been closely monitoring the internet usage patterns so as to ensure that fast & efficient telecom services remain available to the consumers in this difficult time.
