Gone are the days when you only needed oxygen, water to live; Internet is the newest member of the clan called, “We make life on earth.”
But Pakistani people were not having it at all. The sight of us miserably staring at our loading screens. The Game of Thrones episode got leaked but nobody got to watch it, thanks to our connections. All hell broke loose. Our phones breathed a sigh of relief. We sat with our families, talked to them, got to know them, listened to our stories. It was all cool until the next minute we scrambled to our phones, turned the Internet on and embraced the moment of constant horror. Still no Internet.
While Pakistanis were trying to surf using the dying signals, dead speed and the nerve wrecking connectivity, Twitter was a rumble of crazy humour. It’s very modern-Pakistani that we scramble towards Twitter to cry out our problems. We all did the same. Ironically when the Internet was down, Pakistan Twitter exploded.
Sit back, relax, grab a drink, grab pop corns and enjoy this ride…
You’re lucky if you missed it because we’re about to bring you the best of Pakistani people on the Internet.
The birth of epic banter – give this guy a medal
Pakistani people did not wish to tolerate any BS when the Internet wasn’t working, meanwhile –

Not even 3G or 4G working

Interruption in 3G/4G services due to a tech glitch. Hope there'll be an appreciation of the technology revolution PM NS has gifted to Pak!

Some random shark was receiving hate for no reason at all
Dammit, guys! Leave the poor shark alone. These pictures are from 2015 and it has nothing to do with our slow internet. Get a better connection, maybe?
So the sharks have eaten up two underwater cables of PTCL this time. Good luck with the internet.
