According to sources online, Submarines cables connecting Pakistan with different parts of the World have become faulty during last few days. It could be one of the possible explanation of the internet outage which happened yesterday.
TransWorld was facing problems for the past few days and the entire traffic was shifted over PTCL due to which many ISP’s using PTCL bandwidth became slow.
Today, PTCL told the SEA-ME-WE 4, an international submarine cable has become faulty. It further told that due to this reason the service may become slow specially during high traffic and in order to bring the speed back, the association has started to repair it.
PTCL told that they are vigilant on the current situation and will take necessary action to maintain its speed. The traffic is now being routed through other 3 submarine cables network that are available with PTCL.
