Reportedly, Mobilink network is offline in North region at least, due to an infrastructure outage in company’s main network hub in Islamabad.
All Mobilink numbers in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar and other cities in North region are showing no activity (SMS/Calls/GPRS), at any level.
Twitter feeds are claiming that Mobilink’s MSC 5 in Islamabad caught fire today evening, however, we couldn’t confirm this from Mobilink – as their numbers are not responding.
It merits mentioning here that Mobilink lost its NOC in Islamabad, just recently when fire erupted in the building on one Sunday. This would be second time that Mobilink’s office has caught fire, that too on Sunday.
Just to let you know, all MSCs, Offices, BTSes, and other telco buildings are always insured.
We will update this post as we get more information on this.
We are told that DSL services from Link Dot Net are down in North region as well.
We can confirm the fire incident at one of Mobilink’s office in Islamabad, which is said to be the main hub or technically called main switching center of Mobilink.
No human loss reported so far, apparently due to Sunday’s holiday. Staff available on site told ProPakistani that complete restoration of network can take from 12 to 48 hours at least.
This major damage in Islamabad’s MSC, has impacted Mobilink’s network through out the country.
Mobilink’s Network is (partially) back, and so is Link Dot Net.
