The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said on Sunday that 99.2% of the mobile sites that had been shut down because of the floods were back online.
The telecom regulator, the Public Telecommunications Authority (PTA). He said in a statement that the number of non-functional sites has been cut down to 429. Which is 0.8% of the total. This is due to the fact that the PTA as well as the telecom providers are also working to restore access to mobile sites in areas that are currently hit by flooding.
In the statement, it was also said that the restoration of the optical fiber backhaul. Which was important for allowing nationwide connectivity, was finished. For nationwide service, this was an absolute must. The governing body says that there are more than 850 people who work hard around the clock to fix. Maintain telecom services in the whole country.
The PTA says that sites that are inaccessible are completely cut off by the rising flood waters. But there won’t be a communication blackout because there are other inoperable sites nearby that are still working.
Five hundred sixty-eight people were counted in the disaster area on September 3. As the water level goes down, all the sites will automatically be fixed up to their full capacity. It will make sure that the sites are returned to the way they were before. As promised in the statement, the PTA will keep the public informed as repairs are made to areas that weren’t cleaned thoroughly enough.
