Cellular Services are Finally Restored in Islamabad

Mobile phone services have been restored in Islamabad after a 72 hour black-out, we have checked with official sources.

Services were reinstated as soon as government and protesters in capital reached an agreement, moments ago.

A Pakistan Telecommunication Authority spokesperson confirmed that the regulator has issued directions to mobile phone companies for restoration of mobile phone services in the city.

Not to mention, this was not the first time that mobile phone services were shut down in Pakistan. However, this instance of 72-hour black-out is probably the longest down-time of cellular services in history of Pakistan.

“Ch. Nisar has clearly broken the world record for longest cellular black-out, earlier set by Mr. Rehman Malik, the pioneer of mobile phone service shut-down”, commented an official of a cellular company with request to not mention his name for obvious reasons.

Just to recall, mobile phone companies or customers are never compensated for the losses during the service closures.

It bears mentioning here that mobile phone companies keep charging their customers, particularly the post-paid subscribers, for any daily service charges or package fees.

    Molvees were looking for a way out to go back keeping some respect…….. Govt provided them.
    Remember how Tahir Qadri agreed upon to a non-sense agreement with PPP Govt just to buy respectable way back to his homeland “Canada”.
