PTA Made Alternate Arrangements for Internet Connectivity

The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) has issued a notification stating that alternative arrangements have been made to affect internet connectivity due to a fault in the international submarine cable, which has hampered internet services.

“Given a fault in an international cable landing in Pakistan, alternative arrangements have been made by the service provider to provide uninterrupted internet services to the users by obtaining additional bandwidth,” the PTA said in a statement.

The Telecommunications Authority further said that Trans World Associates (TWA) had earlier reported a deterioration in the service of the SMW5 cable system and international connectivity to Europe due to a subtle fault near Abu Talat, Egypt. Work is underway to correct the defect, although it may take some time for the defect to be completely removed.

The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) is monitoring the situation and will keep it updated.

The Telecommunications Authority said internet services disrupt Thursday due to a fault in one of its six international undersea cables.

The PTA said the international submarine cable system developed the street near Abu Talat in Egypt on Wednesday. The authority acknowledged low internet speeds and frequent shutdowns.

According to the PTA, the defect developed on SEA-ME-WE 5 (Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 5), run by Trans World Associates (TWA).
