While ISPs have gradually restored internet services in most areas, the exact cause of the outage remains uncertain.

According to sources within the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), one potential reason for the disruption could be damage to submarine cables, although this has not been officially confirmed. When contacted for comment, telecom companies informed ProPakistani that the issue may stem from internal factors.
