The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said that a technical fault caused the disruption in internet services in the country on Saturday evening.
In a post on X, the telecom regulator said the fault has been “promptly rectified,” and internet services have been fully restored nationwide.
It is pertinent to mention here that social media platforms became inaccessible around 6:45 pm and were not accessible till 10:00 pm.
X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube were among the social media platforms that face disruption in Pakistan. This was the third time in just over a month that social media platforms became temporarily unavailable in the country.
