As per the reports, the internet speed was disrupted countrywide on Monday as a fault occurred in the 25,000-kilometres-long Asia-Europe double AE1 cable.
In February this year, Pakistan had also faced internet disruptions as one of the six international submarine cables developed a fault near Abu Talat, Egypt.
The fault was later repaired by the Trans World Associates, one of the two licence holders for international landing stations of submarine cables.
