Telecom infrastructure ‘restored’
KARACHI: The Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited and Ufone on Friday claimed to have restored their network disrupted by heavy rains and flooding in parts of Balochistan and Sindh.
“The torrential rains also caused a major damage to road and bridge infrastructure in the region, further intensifying the challenge of timely restoration of the network. However, PTCL and Ufone field teams were able to live up to their commitment to keeping their customers connected at all times,” said a statement.
It said that the PTCL’s optical fiber cable deployed alongside roads and bridges in Sindh and Balochistan got swept away at multiple locations due to heavy rains
