On Tuesday, it was reported that a dual cut in the terrestrial segment of South East Asia–Middle East–Western Europe 5 was reported impacting internet services across the South Asian country.
“Alternate arrangements to provide uninterrupted internet services to the users have been made. Work is underway to remove the fault,” PTA confirmed.
Due to faults in cables, internet users faced slow internet speed on social media platforms while some people reported outages.
SEAMEWE-5, also known as South East Asia–Middle East–Western Europe 5, is an optical fibre submarine communications cable system that carries telecom links between Singapore and France. The 20,000 kilometres long underground cable system was commissioned in 2016.
At least seven submarine internet cable systems are currently connecting to Pakistan.
