Covid-19, commonly referred to as the novel coronavirus, has affected the world adversely. With the unavailability of a vaccine and the absence of any proven treatment, all possible preventive measures are executed to safeguard the infected individuals.
To flatten the curve and control the outbreak, some measures including social distancing and countrywide lockdowns have been initiated across the globe.
Doctors and hospitals around the world are working nonstop to treat the infected patients with different degrees of symptoms from moderate to acute. These are surely unprecedented times and none of us was prepared for this calamity. In these testing times, internet connectivity has been declared as part of the essential services.
The internet traffic in Pakistan has surged 15% amid Covid-19 lockdown, according to Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA). And, the ISPs are making all-out efforts to ensure that during these tough times, everyone stays connected with the world.
There is massive digital adoption across the country for remote working and learning, e.g. Quranic lessons via Skype, webinars via Zoom, digital classrooms for e-learning by students and academia, and a sharp surge in payments and money transfers via digital financial service platforms including mobile wallets and online banking, etc.
It has been reported that Zoom, a digital conferencing solution, has grown exponentially from 10 million daily active subscribers to a staggering 200 million daily active subscribers in the past few weeks.
As corporates and SMEs resort to a true digital lifestyle with most of the staff members operating from home, Transworld Home, a tier-1 operator in Pakistan, has been at the forefront to serve these professionals and households, living up to the standards of the best internet in Pakistan.
To ensure uninterrupted connectivity, the technical support staff of Transworld Home has been operational from day one of the lockdown.
