The Universal Service Fund (USF) has awarded a contract worth PKR 92 Million to Jazz to provide high-speed broadband in Kurram Lot (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa). Through the project, broadband coverage will be provided in 224 mauzas in Kurram covering an approximate unserved area of 2,980 sq. km. The aim is to provide reliable and cheap broadband connectivity across the country, particularly in the remote areas!
Quote from the CCRA: Sharing his views on the development, Jazz’s Chief Corporate & Regulatory Affairs Officer Syed Fakhar Ahmed, said, “Our collaboration with USF is in line with our agenda of bridging the prevalent digital divide. This is why, the project has special significance for us and in due time over 0.44 million residents of these areas will have access to the country’s fastest mobile broadband. Jazz is looking forward to assisting these people in unlocking their potential in an increasingly interconnected world.”
