Internet Blackout Hits Pakistan

Internet services of PTCL, Nayatel, Stormfiber, Transworld, and Transworld remain suspended as well as Ufone and Telenor. Internet blackout has gripped most parts of the country since Monday morning. Services of almost all major Internet Service Providers disrupted.

The internet outage started at around 7 AM today, just an hour or so before the commencement of official working hours. Almost all sectors of the economy rely heavily on the internet nowadays, particularly the banking sector. Some ISPs are working fine as they have backup connectivity.

Some ISPs have switched off their helplines and stopped registering complaints. PTA is investigating the issue and closely monitoring the situation. The citizens have bombarded the helpline and complaint numbers of all ISPs, it has been confirmed by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).
