Alternate Arrangements Made for Internet Connectivity Affected by Fault in International Submarine Cable

Islamabad (21st December 2021): A fault in one of the international submarine cables has been reported in the sea near Karachi affecting some internet traffic in peak hours. However, alternate arrangements to provide uninterrupted internet services to the users have been made by relevant service providers through obtaining additional bandwidth and capacity to meet the requirements.

Work is underway to remove the fault which may take some time to rectify. Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has directed operators to ensure uninterrupted internet services through alternate routes.
