Oh Shit! The Internet In Pakistan Went Down And We're Like, Bro Kya Scene Hai Abh?

By Ather Ahmed | 5 Aug, 2017

So… the internet has drastically slowed down across the nation (if you’re reading this while all this is happening, challo good hai aap ka toh chal ra hai); PTCL customers in particular faced this problem, not surprising in the slightest. Anyway, it seems to be a major fault. Even 3G and 4G services are not working properly, some services are suspended altogether. Apparently, there is a technical issue with one of those submarine cables to Pakistan. The cable cuts have happened somewhere near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Apparently, there is a technical issue with one of those submarine cables to Pakistan. The issue took place somewhere near Saudi Arabia, one cable system that is known as SEA-ME-WE 4 is under repair. Right now with three cables damaged Pakistan is relying on a backup of sorts. Let’s just say the internet here is in ‘deep’ shit.

People were not pleased with crappy internet and expressed their frustration on Twitter (which you need the internet to access lol)

A bit harsh don’t you think?

Don’t say that man our bread and butter is dependant on the internet

We should get them checked at least

Some took the opportunity to bash PTCL. Nothing new here.

Well PTCL does have a point there

There were some Game Of Thrones references as well

There were some who took it as an opportunity to pursue ‘other things’
