Pakistani internet users say that Dailymotion, a French video-sharing website, is not accessible for Pakistan Telecom Company Limited (PTCL) customers.
Although PTA has no officially confirmed the ban but the users continue to claim that they could not access the website.
This is quite frustrating for people as the Dailymotion is being used as an alternative to the YouTube.

Pakistan had blocked access to YouTube in September 2012 after the video sharing website failed to take down an anti-Islam film that sparked furious protests across the Muslim world.
However, later the website was restored in many cities.
