A fault occurred in one of the international submarine cable system providing internet bandwidth to Pakistan, IMEWE near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia early morning today, due to which customers will experience slow internet browsing. Another international cable system SEA-ME-WE 4 is already under repair by the international consortium.
Mr Sikandar Naqvi, Chief Business Development Officer PTCL informed,
“The international consortium managing the submarine cable system has already started working to resolve the situation as early as possible.
In order to minimize the service impact, PTCL has already undertaken necessary measures to arrange/alternate bandwidth through its other cable systems and international cable business partners. Inconvenience is regretted.”
