Karachi TV, internet services to be suspended for two hours

KARACHI: (HRNW) The Cable Operators Association of Pakistan has announced that it would go on a token strike from 7pm to 9pm in Karachi Monday.

Cable operators were not being notified by the K-Electric before dismantling of TV and internet connections, COAP Chairman Khalid Arain said at a press conference in Karachi.

“TV and internet cable do not conduct electricity,” Arain said. “Time should be given to underground these wires.”

He said the KE holds talks with them on one hand, while it dismantles connections on the other. KE staffers cut cables on Sunday as well, the COAP chairman said.

He said they would be striking in Karachi for now. But if the issue was not resolved, then they would call for a countrywide strike, Arain warned.

Stormfibre issued a statement to its customers saying that the step of cutting aerial drop cables of various fiber broadband providers is irresponsible and disruptive. The service provider said such and activity cannot be done without prior intimation.
