COVID-19 or Coronavirus has taken the world by storm. Nobody of this generation had ever expected something like this to happen.
With no vaccine and no proven solution to how this virus will go, the social distancing is the only solution to protect yourself from it.
Hence, the companies, educational institutes, and every organization around the world have ensured that their employees and students stay at home, work from there, and stay safe.
That is the only way you can protect yourself from catching the virus and stop it from spreading everywhere.
Measures To Control COVID In Pakistan
Among the other measures, only pharmacies are allowed to be opened. The markets and independent outlets are opened with certain SOPs.
The restaurants are allowed to only deliver for a limited time, and cashless delivery is preferred. The educational institutes and workplaces are closed for an indefinite period.
These are some of the major initiatives taken across the country to ensure that people go out minimum and are keeping away from meeting each other.
Increase In Internet Traffic
Owing to how everything has gone virtual and every business and employee is online to get the work done, the internet traffic has gone up by a great measure.
As per the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), internet traffic in Pakistan has increased by 15% in the Coronavirus crisis.
This is the reason; the internet service providers are doing their best to make sure they cater to their consumers the best.
The reason of the increase in traffic is that everyone is taking classes online via Skype or Zoom, the businesses are holding meetings & boardroom sessions on Zoom, the project management tools like Asana and Trello are being used to conduct everyday workplace operations, the e-learning and LMS portals are being used to conduct classes, and online payments & banking have seen a surge too.
Now instead of going out, people are having parties, networking sessions, and family gatherings over the internet as well.
Therefore, we truly are living in a digital world where everything is happening on the internet.
PTCL – Staying Strong Amidst The Crisis
The reason to explain the use of the internet in detail was that the internet is everything in today’s world.
With people bound to stay at home, the digital lifestyle has taken a new hold.
Amidst all the crises, PTCL has definitely helped the businesses and households sail out of the storm smoothly.
The entire team at PTCL has been working day and night to ensure that people have access to seamless, uninterrupted internet.
There is no doubt that currently, PTCL is providing the best internet connection among other internet service providers in the country.
With half of the employees working from home and the other half following strict protocol and SOPs while working from the office, PTCL is operating throughout the clock with customer service just a call away.
Moreover, despite it all, the team is being well taken care of and their safety is tantamount to be ensured.
PTCL Connecting Everyone, Everywhere!
With the team working day and night, PTCL internet packages is connecting everyone in Pakistan and abroad in the time of crisis.
Those who are stranded abroad or those who decided to stay safe and not come back to the country are easily and safely in touch with their family members.
