Submarine cable repaired, complete recovery expected in 15-20 days

KARACHI: The MV international submarine cable that was experiencing a fault in the Arabian Sea a day earlier was repaired on Friday.

Internet speeds across Pakistan plummeted Thursday after a technical fault hit the main underwater fibre-optic cable system in the Arabian Sea connecting the country to the internet.

The fault impacted browsing speeds for users across most major Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the country, while causing problems for other countries in the region as well.

The speed of internet available in Pakistan reached 50 percent of its maximum efficiency today from 19 percent.

Full recovery is expected in 15 to 20 days.
