A fault in Pakistan's only fiber-optic international cable link that seriously disrupted nationwide Internet access for nearly two weeks has been repaired.
The problem was in a communications cable in the Arabian Sea. Pakistani officials said on Friday Internet users across the country are back on line. Officials say the country's largest state-run telecom company, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited, spent about two million dollars on back-up facilities for Internet users since the problem began June 27th. The fault in the cable link disrupted businesses across the country.
