According to sources, a technical glitch in the PTCL network affected the service. This is the second major internet breakdown in a week.
According to a PTCL spokesperson, a PTCL’s fibre cable was damaged on several points, causing degradation of internet service. The PTCL service is affected in the northern and central regions, according to the spokesperson.
Teams are busy restoring the service on a priority basis, the spokesperson added.
