PTCL Internet Services Down All Across Pakistan (August) 2022

Pakistan Telecommunication Services Limited(PTCL) internet services are down all across Pakistan on 19th August, 2022. In a message sent to users via its official Twitter account, PTCL stated: “PTCL’s fiber network is experiencing some technical difficulties due to severe rainfall and floods.” Users of PTCL in the northern and central regions are consequently experiencing internet outages.

Earlier, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said that the PTCL’s reports of internet connectivity issues were due to an “issue” in the data networks connecting the South and North regions.

The PTA issued a post on Twitter stating, “As reported by PTCL, an issue has been reported in data networks between South and North which is causing internet connectivity issues.”

The PTA issued a post on Twitter stating, “As reported by PTCL, an issue has been reported in data networks between South and North which is causing internet connectivity issues.”

The statement also said that “PTA is monitoring the situation and additional information will be issued.”

A lot of people reported internet service outages on social media platforms as well.

Internet outages were recorded in May, and rumors circulated that the government had shut down the services because of demonstrations Imran Khan, the former prime leader, had organized.

The PTA, however, had denied making such a decision and emphasized that Transworld, a provider of internet service, was seeing a modest decline.

Prior to this, internet services in Pakistan suffered in February as a result of damage to one of the two TransWorld-operated underwater cables close to Karachi.

Following a few hour-long interruption brought on by heavy rains and flooding, internet access was completely restored in Pakistan’s central and northern regions on Friday, according to the nation’s telecom regulator.

The capital and other significant urban centers experienced poor connectivity, according to major Pakistani cellular companies, with one business attributing the issue to flooding.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) stated in a statement that “the technical failure in data networks which caused internet outage in Pakistan has been addressed,” adding that all internet services have been returned to normal.

Earlier, the government-owned Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd. (PTCL) (PTCA.PSX) reported that users in the northern and central regions were experiencing outages due to problems with its optical fiber network.

Users in Pakistan who posted on social media claimed that additional telecom services had gone offline, but no announcements from those businesses acknowledged any issues.

Both the country’s capital, Islamabad, and Lahore, the second-largest urban area in Pakistan, reported widespread internet blackouts where both fixed-line broadband customers and cellular network users reported no access.

However, many consumers claimed that Veon (VON.AS), an international service provider registered in Amsterdam, owned Jazz, Pakistan’s largest telecom company, remained operational throughout the outage.

However, the technical fault in the optical fiber has been repaired and internet services all across the country have been restored now.

A day without internet

Though it’s difficult to imagine a world without the internet, losing connectivity seriously jeopardizes our day-to-day operations.

The Pakistani Internet blackout started around 7 am, at the start of the working day. Major ISPs include (Pakistan Telecommunication Limited) PTCL, Stormfiber backed by Cybernet, Ufone, and Mobilink Jazz went offline.

All sorts of businesses suffered as internet connection went down across the country. Customers were unable to use or access any kind of service, check out, or contact support of any business organization. Businesses were unable to interact with their consumers, send them invoices, accept credit card payments, or notify them that something is wrong, they may turn to a different business for assistance.

Employees were unable to send attachments, load files, or respond to emails, as the phone networks were also not working

Employees typically arrive at work with the goal of performing well. Employees had difficulty doing their work on schedule as the PTCL internet connection remained disrupted across Pakistan. According to research, poor internet connections are the top source of annoyance in many offices, which has an impact on people’s mental well-being.

Employees at almost all companies lost internet access, and they were not even able to just reply to emails through their smartphones or laptops. The great majority of enterprises could not function today. The businesses that take payments online, undoubtedly missed out on potential customers today because of PTCL internet outage in Pakistan. The staff wasn’t able to interact with customers or each other. The business workflow is negatively impacted by an internet outage.
