After PEMRA put news channels off-air, Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) has blocked access to Twitter, Facebook and Youtube in Pakistan on all major internet service providers (ISPs).
A new fault in SEAMEWE4 and IMEW, the submarine cables that connects Pakistan to the rest of internet, has caused tremendous speed reduction across the country. One fault was spotted in the SMW4 cable located near Karachi while another in the IMEW near Egypt. Both faults resulted in slower internet speeds across Pakistan. The fault has affected both the landline and 3G/4G users.
