3G and 4G internet services were mysteriously shut down in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan.
According to sources, mobile internet service was abruptly shut down in Quetta on Monday night and the reasons for the shutdown are yet to be ascertained.
When contacted in this regard, Balochistan Home Department, Deputy Commissioner Quetta and Balochistan Government Spokesperson Liaquat Shahwani expressed ignorance and said that the Balochistan government has not stopped 3G and 4G service in Quetta and no such recommendation has been made by the federal government. However, it is not known if this step has been taken by the federal government.
On the other hand, the sudden closure of the service caused concern and difficulties to the people, while several attempts were made to contact the PTA spokesperson but he could not be reached.
