PTA boosts rural telecoms services with creation of new telecentres (Pakistan)

Posted on: January 17, 2009

Pakistan’s telecoms regulator, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), has announced the completion of almost 350 telecentres aimed at providing basic telecoms services in rural regions. A press release from the regulator notes that the centres, called ‘Rabta Ghars’, are equipped with facilities including fixed line telephony, internet connectivity and faxes. 104 of the telecentres are located in Sindh, 82 in Punjab, 86 in the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP), 62 in Balochistan and 15 in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and the Northern Areas.

The project was initiated in 2007, aiming to bring telecoms services in rural regions in line with developed areas. The centres have been sponsored by various companies, including Pakistan Telecommunciation Company Ltd (PTCL), Mobilink, Instaphone and Ufone.
