KARACHI: The internet services which continued to be affected for almost two days due to a submarine cable fault, has been restored, said Imran Janjua, the General Manager of Pakistan Telecommunication Limited (PTCL) here on Sunday.

The internet service was affected after a fault occurred near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in one of the international submarine cable systems, IMEWE, early on Saturday that provide internet bandwidth to Pakistan. Due to the fault consumers experienced slow internet browsing.

Another international cable system SEA-ME-WE 4 is already under repair by the international consortium.

PTCL’s Chief Business Development Officer Sikandar Naqi said on Saturday that the international consortium managing the submarine cable system had already started working to resolve the situation as early as possible.

In order to minimise service impact, the PTCL had undertaken necessary measures to arrange additional/alternate bandwidth through its other cable systems and international cable business partners.—APP
