The fiber optic cable connecting Singapore to Pakistan and Europe has been cut.

According to sources, the submarine optical fiber cable has suffered five cuts, and it will take a month to fix it.

According to Pakistan Telecommunication (PTA) sources, internet service from the eastern direction has been affected due to the cutting of the optical fiber cable. Pakistani users are facing severe difficulties in browsing the Internet.

PTA sources claim that Pakistani users will continue to face difficulties during the evening hours.

Meanwhile, PTCL sources mention that traffic coming from the eastern direction is less than 10 percent, and hence internet traffic has been shifted to alternative sources.
