Govt decided to shut down internet service across Pakistan

In preparation for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) long march, the federal government has made the executive decision to temporarily shut down internet service across Pakistan.

Both the largest internet service providers in the country, Transworld and PIE, have received instructions from the higher authorities to temporarily shut down all internet services across Pakistan.

It has come to our attention that Transworld’s internet services have been terminated, and reports indicate that the government is working at terminating PIE’s internet access as well. Following the termination of internet services, customers will be confronted with significant challenges.

In the earlier ruling, the government-mandated the immediate suspension of cellular service in 11 different districts located inside the state of Punjab.

According to sources inside the telecommunications industry, services for mobile phones are being terminated immediately.

As a direct response to the prolonged march that the PTI has been leading towards Islamabad, the authorities have issued orders to temporarily halt cellular service in 11 districts.

The orders to suspend services in 11 districts, including Gujrat, Hafizabad, Mandi Bahauddin, Sargodha, Khoshab, Mianwali, Sialkot, and Jhelum, have been issued and will remain in effect until tonight. Rawalpindi is also included in this list.

The suspension of cellular service as a measure taken by government officials in Pakistan to assist in the upkeep of law and order is a common practice in that country. However, as a result of this policy, people’s ability to communicate with one another is disrupted, which leads to an outcry from the general population.
