Broadband for South Punjab: PTCL and Worldcall Get Rs. 1.95 billion from USF






USF has been active in extending ICT access to under-served areas of Pakistan. Now its the turn of South Punjab to get  Broadband Internet, funded by Universal Service Fund (Ministry of IT), worth Rs. 1.95 billion. This project will be implemented through PTCL and Worldcall and will providebroadband facilities in un-served urban areas of Southern Punjab. This covers a population of 4.4 Million in 38 cities located in districts of Bahawalnagar, Bahawalpur, D.G. Khan, Khanewal, Leyyah, Lodhran, Multan, Muzaffargarh, Rahim Yar khan, Rajanpur and Vehari.

It is estimated that 101,500 broadband connections will be provided through this project. It also includes providing broadband facilities in 388 higher secondary schools, colleges and libraries through the establishment of Educational Broadband Centres (EBCs) and 104 Community Broadband Centres (CBCs) for the citizens who cannot afford PCs.

The Broadband project aims to deliver the social and economic benefits of ICTs to the masses, thus helping to achieve Government’s objective of breaking the poverty cycle and eliminating the social divide. Broadband is also a key element of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals on poverty reduction and is globally bringing a paradigm shift to the way people run their lives. It is also transforming every facet of communications by providing e-services related to education, healthcare and good governance.
