A significant disruption in mobile network services resulted in hundreds of Gilgit residents losing phone coverage, causing widespread inconvenience and frustration.
Major telecommunications providers, including Zong, Telenor, and Jazz, experienced early-day outages, with services restored after 3:30pm.
However, Scom services remained operational throughout the day, providing a lifeline for those affected by the outages.
Following an investigation, Hum News English contacted the affected service providers for feedback on the situation.
Telenor was the first to acknowledge the problem, with spokesperson Ahmed issuing an apology to their customers. “We are aware of the data outage in your area and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
