Transworld Home sent an email to customers acknowledging an “unexpected nationwide outage” affecting internet services in Pakistan.

The company assured customers of an active investigation into the matter and committed to restoring services once the outage was resolved, apologizing for any inconvenience caused.

Access to the social media giant X has been blocked since Feb 17 as allegations of rigging during the Feb 8 general elections continue to make news.

Ban was imposed after an election officer in Rawalpindi, Liaquat Ali Chattha, publicly claimed to have allegedly changed election results in his area. It soon went viral on social media.
