Why PTCL internet services were down throughout Pakistan today

Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd (PTCL) internet services are being disrupted across the country due to a “issue in data networks between South and North,” according to reports on Friday.

Consumers of PTCL services are experiencing difficulties as a result of this network issue.

“As reported by PTCL, the issue has been reported in data networks between South and North which is causing internet connectivity issues,” the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said in a statement.

“This matter is being looked into,” it added.

The telecom regulator stated that it is monitoring the situation and will provide further updates.

The PTCL stated in a statement that the optical fiber network is experiencing technical issues as a result of heavy rains and flooding.

As a result, PTCL users in the Northern and Central regions are experiencing internet outages, according to the company.

“Our teams are working to restore the services on priority.”
