Internet services across the country have been restored, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) said on Sunday.

Yesterday, PTCL users were facing slow internet browsing due to fault in Submarine cable.

According to media reports, due to defective worldwide cable system internet consumers faced huge difficulties while using internet service.

"The worldwide consortium has identified the fault in IMEWE cable near Saudi Arabia and is now working to resolve the issue", PTCL tweeted earlier today.

"Considering the constant requirement of additional bandwidth and to give seamless services to our customers, PTCL is now investing in another cable which will be operational in 2018 and the landing part of that cable will be in Gwadar", he added.

He also mentioned that PTCL has already invested in 4 worldwide cable systems (SMW-3, SMW-4, IMEWE and AAE-1). "Things will start getting better", the company posted on Twitter late Saturday.

Two flights of national flag carrier, one for Islamabad to Barcelona PK-769, was delayed for more than an hour and another one for London PK-785 was delayed for 45 minutes. On the other hands, telecom operators took to social media to take a jibe at PTCL and capitalize on the situation for access to 3G/4G services without disruption.

The internet disruption prevented airport officials confirming flight schedules and ticket bookings, as a result of which at least eight flights domestic and global flights were cancelled on Sunday.
