PTA makes alternate arrangements for internet after fault in international submarine cable

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has made alternate arrangements for the internet services in the country as the connectivity was affected due to a fault in International Submarine Cable.

In Pakistan, the internet services were hampered on Thursday as the country’s telecom authority said one of its six international undersea cables developed a fault.

In a statement, PTA said: “In the wake of a fault in one of the international cables landing in Pakistan, alternate arrangements to provide uninterrupted internet services to the users have been made by relevant service providers through obtaining additional bandwidth.”

“Trans World Associates (TWA) has earlier communicated service degradation on the international connectivity towards Europe on SMW5 cable system due to subsea fault near Abu Talat, Egypt,” the regulatory body informed.

“Work is underway to rectify the fault however it may take some time until the fault is removed completely. Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is monitoring the situation and will continue to update on it,” the statement added.
