The recent rain spells have collapsed the PTCL’s landline telecommunication system in Site industrial area detailed Asad Nisar Barkhurdaria, President of the SITE Association of Industry (SAI), in his statement.

The SAI chief grieved that 70% services affected in industries and landlines and broadband were also not working. PTCL’s management seems negligent for resolution of the outage. No efforts for rectification have been done so far from PTCL officials.

Numerous complaints have been registered against outage of PTCL landline and internet and received no response. Barkhudaria requested the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication to intrude in the matter to get the telecommunication service restored in the Site area on an urgent basis.

Imran Janjua, General Manager of Public Relations at PTCL said he would check and return with a thorough answer. There was no response from him till the filing of the report.
