AzmiTech has now lost track of how many times the internet outageInternet outage in Pakistan, PTA reports has hit the country during the past few days.
Then it’s also yet unclear if this is submarine cable or the floods to be blamed. Due to political reasons, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) playing with the internet could not be ruled out completely.
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), seemingly busy with non-issues, is helpless in getting the consumers their fundamental right, a usable and reliable internet connection.
Not to be mistaken, it’s 2022 and not 2007 when we had limited connectivity and just a few hundred thousand internet users.
Over 115 million internet users in the country rely heavily on the internet for their domestic and commercial needs.
If this is not stopped, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) will soon not have a market to regulate.
