According to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), it has not yet received any directives from the executive branch on the restart of mobile internet services.

The telecom regulator shut down mobile broadband services nationwide on May 9 as a result of violent demonstrations that broke out after Imran Khan’s detention.

In Lahore, Rawalpindi, and Peshawar, PTI supporters staged violent protests against military and governmental structures, which prompted authorities to take control of the situation by suspending mobile internet services and blocking access to popular social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Although the PTA informed consumers that broadband internet access was still available, it did clarify today that the country’s mobile internet service will be halted until further notice.

The telecom regulator claimed that since the Ministry of Interior ordered the suspension, it has not received any additional directives from the authorities for the reinstatement of mobile internet services.

The restoration of mobile internet services is anticipated to occur within 36 hours, according to interior minister Rana Sanaullah’s announcement on Thursday.
