Digital blackouts are occurring in several areas of Pakistan as a result of floods brought on by prolonged rain. Since many weeks, internet and telecom services have been negatively impacted, and the situation is not likely to get better any time soon.
Optical fibre cable damage and power outages have once again disrupted telecom services in Chitral, Upper Dir, Doonbala, Swat, Madin, Lal Qila Samarbagdir, Tank, and DI Khan, according to a recent tweet from the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).
Positively, PTA has ordered all mobile network providers to offer free calls in all Pakistani areas impacted by the floods. In Sindh, Balochistan, KPK, and other impacted areas of Pakistan, the reform is already in effect.
