 Many people have complained of slowed internet or its outright outage causing disruption in services that rely on the internet.

The PTA said it’s overseeing the situation now which ensures that notice has been taken by the authority and indeed problem people have been facing is real.

Earlier this year when a similar problem had occurred, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority said alternate arrangements are in place to provide uninterrupted internet service following a reported fault in an international submarine cable that dented Pakistani internet surfing.
