Severe Internet Outage As Two Major Submarine Cables Experience Fault
Internet users in Pakistan are experiencing slow internet browsing and it is due to the disconnection of two major submarine cables connecting Pakistan with the outside world.
A source has confirmed to SIASAT.PK that two submarine cables, IMEWE and SEAMEWE 4, experienced a fault at an unknown location. It is pertinent to mention here that the two effected submarine cables carry half of the Pakistan’s internet traffic.
According to the available details, the international consortium responsible for the management of Submarine cable system has already started work to restore the system back to normal. Until the effected submarine cables are restored, internet users across the country will be experiencing slow internet.
It is still unclear about the time the restoration process will take.
