Lahore (Staff Report): Internet and Mobile services all across Pakistan are having issues today due to Chehlum of Martyrs of Karbala. In Sindh, it was already announced that mobile and internet services will be suspended due to Chehlum.
Uber and Careem have also posted on their social media pages that the service might face issues today.
Here are the posts:
Due to the closure of cellular services in Karachi, Uber services will remain unavailable in certain areas of the city.
Please remain patient and request again after cell services become available.— Uber Pakistan (@Uber_PKR) November 10, 2017
As internet service is suspended in many areas today, therefore, the drivers are unable to communicate with riders. Now ride-hailing services like Uber and Careem depend on mobile signals and internet availability to communicate with the rider.
Therefore, people, should avoid traveling or may go back to traditional transport system today and use taxis.
