The Pakistan Telecommunication Company has agreed to pay damages for the losses during the 11-day Internet disruption due to a fault in a key submarine cable in June, but said it would compensate only the Internet service providers.Read the entire story here.
In a recent development, top PTCL officials held a meeting with the ISPs representatives, but said the compensation would not match the claims made by the operators.
The statement that PTCL will not be paying the full amount of claims of losses made by ISPs is disturbing, to put it mildly. PTCL screws up, makes businesses suffer losses to the tune of millions of rupees, and boldly claims it will not compensate the companies. How very nice of them.
