Faulty submarine internet cable repaired: PTA

Staff Reporter

Internet users faced disruptions in parts of the country on Monday as a submarine cable developed a fault near Fujairah, UAE, according to Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).

The PTA said some users might have faced degradation in services due to the fault, adding that “the faulty cable segment has been repaired and work is underway to make the services fully functional.”

The authority said it was monitoring the situation and would continue to update on it.
Internet services had also faced disruptions countrywide in February this year as one of the six international submarine cables developed a fault near Abu Talat, Egypt.

The fault was later repaired by the Trans World Associates — one of the two licence holders for international landing stations of submarine cables.
