According to PTA sources, a failure has been discovered in one of the international underwater cables, the SMW4, causing internet service to be degraded across the country.
ISPs across Pakistan have been warned by PTCL that an outage on one of the international upstream networks has occurred once more.
Standard methods for providing consumers with uninterrupted internet connections have so far failed, with eastbound traffic considerably hindered due to ongoing issues that have yet to be resolved.
The impact may be greater than usual because much of the travel to and from Pakistan passes through India and Singapore.
Pakistan’s total bandwidth capacity has been decreased by around 20% as a result of today’s outage, according to PTA sources. The situation is being closely followed by the appropriate authorities, and PTA has encouraged PTCL to enhance capacity on other cables to prevent degradation.
Until the problem is rectified, users across the country can expect glitches and slower internet connections.
Officials have not offered an ETA for the submarine cable’s repair, which may take hours, days, or even weeks.
