Internet in Pakistan Fully Restored After Submarine Cable is Fixed in Record Time

Internet speeds in Pakistan are fully restored now as the damaged submarine cable (IMEWE) is now fully functional after the fault was fixed in record time, we have confirmed with sources.

According to details shared with ProPakistani, IMEWE is now operational at full capacity and hence the internet access and speeds in the country are now fully restored.

It must be mentioned that IMEWE was cut yesterday morning and Pakistan was literally disconnected with the rest of the world.

However, due to quick resolution in record time, the IMEWE is now back in service after a fault was detected and repaired moments ago.

PTCL, that maintains and operates IMEWE in Pakistan, has confirmed ProPakistani that service to all its users are restored back to normal with-in less than 36 hours.

PTCL said that any customers not getting the expected service should restart their routers for a quick fix.

It must also be mentioned that SEAMEWE4 and TW1 submarine cables — that connect Pakistan with rest of the world — are still down as a repair work is in progress on both the cables.

You can share in below comments if your internet speed is back to normal or not.


    • Must be routing. I’m using Connect and getting 130ms to EU West. Restart your router several times, maybe you ll get some good IP from pool.

  • The bottom line is we are hostages held by PTCL. Bottom Line is PTCL does not have a back up plan nor back haul. Mobile data was must more reliable and fast then Pakistan’s largest Telecom Operator.

    • PTCL maintains the cable in Pakistan, not Jeddah.

      There are several cables, not just one being maintained by both PTCL & Transworld. the TW-1 cable under maintenance was transworld cable too. They happened to be under maintenance at the time too, so it was a matter of timing.

      mobile data also receives its internet via backhaul, not by magic as you would have believe. Transworld apparently prioritised traffic for certain operators.

  • hmmm i wonder if all communication is done through sub marine cable then for what purpose we have satellite links , looks like all communication is ground ,

  • Exaggeration. Pakistan was not “literally” cut off. There are two other cables that were working perfectly fine. My Internet (including mobile Internet) worked fine all day. This was absolutely a massive outage but to say that Pakistan was “literally” cut off is a bit much.

  • oo saalio….. baa kamal log lajawab service…. …. PTCL said that any customers not getting the expected service should restart their routers for a quick fix……… looool

  • Well I was not expecting it this much sooner. It is really laudable on the part of all the technical team involved.
