Telecom services restored, AAE-1 fault rectified

LAHORE: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has confirmed that the fault in the AAE-1 International Submarine Cable caused on Sunday evening had been rectified and all affected services have been restored.

The telecommunication authority took to twitter to announce that all the affected telecom services have been restored across the country after rectification of fault in AAE-1, caused last evening. And that all internet and data services were now working as normal.

Earlier on Sunday, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd (PTCL) said that internet users may face “some service degradation” due to a technical fault in submarine cable AAE-1 at Doha.

The statement also stated that PTCL was working with the International Submarine Consortium “to fully restore internet services across the country”.

“We regret the inconvenience caused to our customers and will notify you as soon as the services are fully restored,” said PTCL in its statement.

It is pertinent to mention that internet outages are rather frequent in Pakistan and internet users in Pakistan often have to suffer at the hands of various faults in submarine cables that have lasted a couple of days at times.

In October, the IMEWE and SEAMEWE 4 cables, that carry almost 50 per cent of Pakistan’s internet traffic went offline and took a day to fix. Before that internet services were disrupted in June due to “multiple cable cuts”.
