Count on us to turn everything into A plus meme material, be it the cricket banter or just the internet being down. The internet has been down for many users around the country as the major cables broke disrupting the internet connectivity in Pakistan.
We regret to inform you that due to international submarine cable fault, internet services are impacted across Pakistan.
Our technical teams are working on fully restoring internet services. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience. pic.twitter.com/PGh1r6OGB8

If all of a sudden you started receiving phone calls OR people you are surrounded with at home / office started giving you attention and want to spend time with you, please note; Internet in #Pakistan is almost offline due to submarine cuts. #PTCL

Even PIA was suffering at the hands of the internet breakdown:
PTCL network is down due to damage to their underground cables causing outage of PIA Check-In systems across the country. We're moving to backup systems & manual processes. We regret the inconvenience caused to our passengers due to the resulting delays. #PIACares @pid_gov #PIA

Some had theories:
Hear me out! What if the real reason for the internet being down is not some submarine cable but the government trying to censor the Azadi March that is already not being shown on Mainstream TV? 🤔
— Faizan Khattak (@faizan_ukk) October 29, 2019
Some were going a little too wind with their theories:
