Internet services disrupted across Pakistan as submarine cables go offline


Internet services across the country partially crashed on Tuesday evening, due to a fault that developed in international submarine cables that connect Pakistan.

“We regret to inform you that due to international submarine cable fault, internet services are impacted across Pakistan,” said Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) in a post on Twitter.

“Our technical teams are working on fully restoring internet services. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.”

As per reports, the disruption started when two cables went offline.

“IMEWE and SEAMEWE 4, that carry almost 50 per cent of Pakistan’s internet traffic, went offline due to a fault at a location that’s yet not determined,” a local media outlet reported.
