Haque recently spoke at the Aiwan-e-Sadar on the importance of high speed mobile broadband, as he signed on a similar project in Muzaffargarh and Rajanpur districts in Punjab. According to him, the ministry has been working on the goal of Digital Pakistan through the Universal Service Fund (USF), and have been improving the socioeconomic life for the people.

Providing such infrastructure is necessary for the technological advancement of Pakistan to compete with international markets, as well as to improve the interconnectivity of the people. This specific project in Muzaffargarh and Rajanpur will give a population of around 2 million a subsidy of estimate Rs 650 million.

“This project will not only provide broadband services to the locals residing in Muzaffargarh and Rajanpur districts but will also improve lives of people, create job opportunities for them, empower women along with many other benefits,” Haque stated.

“We have also very recently launched an optic fibre programme to connect union councils, which will completely alter the digital landscape in the country,” he added.


We hope that the Ministry of IT fulfills its promise and facilitates KPK, Balochistan and Gilgit Baltistan with 3G and 4G services soon for a better connected Pakistan.
