Internet/Telecom Outage in PK
There have been a serious damage to PTCL’s backhaul fiber optic system which has caused a major outage for internet /telco systems in PK specially Lahore. ISP’s using TW1 backbone are working fine at the moment but all other ISPs behind PIE/PTCL backbone are suffering from this. I have managed to write these lines due to a satellite link around.
Initial reports are coming in that one of the Telco exchange in karachi (perhaps Marson or Cantt.) is the center point for this outage. Will keep you posted once their is an update.
