Faulty cable crashes Pakistan Internet
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 6/28/2005 09:25:00 PM.

Net is too darn slow :-(

An undersea cable carrying data between Pakistan and the outside world has developed a serious fault, virtually crippling data feeds, including the Internet, telecommunications officials said on Tuesday.

The system crashed late on Monday and was still down on Tuesday afternoon. Work in many offices across the country ground to a halt as people realized it was not one of Pakistan's regular, but usually brief, technical hitches.

Officials at Pakistan Telecommunication Ltd (PTCA.KA), which operates the link, said the fault was in an undersea cable and had been caused by a power supply problem.

Airlines and credit card companies were among the businesses hit by the crash.

"It's a total disaster," said Nasir Ali, commercial director of the private Air Blue airline. "We have a Web-based booking system which has totally collapsed."

PTCL provided satellite back-up for the link, which meant some people were able to get access to a very slow Internet connection, Hussain said, but users complained it was too slow to be of any use.
