Wateen’s deployment of a robust Optical Fiber Cable network of over 10,000 kilometers and the largest nationwide 3.5 GHz WiMAX network rollout in the world makes Wateen a natural partner of choice to support such initiatives from USF.

Mr. Tariq Malik, CEO Wateen Telecom, commended Wateen’s efforts for promotion of internet literacy in these regions and said

“Wateen stands committed in alleviating the digital divide between the urban and rural population and is always one step ahead of its competition to meet such challenges. Our aim is to promote computer and internet literacy in underserved regions of Pakistan by making these services ‘available’ and ‘affordable’ for the people of Pakistan.

While talking about corporate social responsibility he further stated that through these projects Wateen is not only making services available in educational centers by building computer laboratories that shall be fully equipped with broadband internet but is also generating employment opportunities by creating partnerships with the local community to build internet cafes in the area.

It is Wateen’s vision to contribute towards the development of our great country and hence, participation in USF regions aligns with Wateen’s vision of taking Pakistan into the digital broadband revolution of the 21st century while promoting education and literacy through these means.”

Pakistani Politicians having intrest to come online and publish their activities on social community websites,like facebook,youtube,orkut,
Rehman Malik, Interior Minister of pakistan has publish his fully functional website up and live – even more pleasing is that he will be available for chat with general public for one hour fortnightly. That’s pretty impressive on his part.

If you look at this website, it has got plenty of sections, including Videos, Pictures, press releases, latest news and much more including a newsletter.

Are you amazed? Here is even more amazing that Mr Rehman Malik has make his Facebook page, Myspace, Friendster and even You Tube Channel.

Facebook page or other profiles on community websites haven’t got much content, maybe Malik’s team is process of making right now. But if you look at website’s feel, it is evident that minister has got some serious plans to follow.

So that’s what we call online presence…!
Here is Website Address: http://www.rehmanmalik.com/
Facebook Page
MySpace
Friendster
Youtube Channel
Twitter – Not available right now, but let’s expect twitter to happen soon.
Apparently this is not official website – meaning that not published by the Government of Pakistan, however, Mr. Malik’s staff would be updating it. Domain name was registered in the name of Faisal Malik back in May 2009 – looks he had this in mind for long.

If this is not official website, then there are good chances that Mr. Rehman may use the followers/readers/fans even when he won’t be in government.
