PTCL Internet Services are Now Fully Restored in Pakistan
Mr. Sikander Naqi, Chief Business Development Officer, PTCL informed that the international consortium managing the submarine cable system identified and fully restored the services today. During the temporary fault that occurred early on Saturday near Jeddah Saudi Arabia, PTCL had taken necessary measures by arranging additional bandwidth through its other cable systems and international cable business partners to minimize the impact on customers. PTCL regrets the inconvenience caused to its customers in this regard and thanks them for their patience.
He also mentioned that PTCL has already invested in 4 international cable systems (SMW-3, SMW-4, IMEWE and AAE-1). PTCL is now investing in a 5th new cable which will be operational in 2018 and the landing part of that cable will be in Gawadar.
