According to the Pakistan Telecommunications Organization, Transworld has successfully transferred international traffic to SMW5’s current capacity and plans to add more bandwidth to SMW5 within the next 48 hours.
A PTA spokesman told ProPakistani that the Consortium, which manages TW-1, will soon announce the date for the restoration of the TW-1 crossing. It should be noted that more than 26 hours have passed and the cable has not been restored yet.
A TWI submarine cable was reportedly cut in Pakistan on Monday evening due to internet speeds. According to the PTA, cable cuts were recorded in the TransWorld submarine cable system about 400 km off the coast of Pakistan. This error disrupted international bandwidth and resulted in disruption of Internet services for Transworld users.
A PTA spokesman said the consortium managing TW-1 was working to determine the fault and its intensity, after which a recovery date would be announced.
