Wateen Promotes Internet Literacy in Underserved Areas of Pakistan

Wateen has been an active participant in Government of Pakistan’s (Ministry of Information Technology) USF projects working towards the development of telecom infrastructure in underserved areas of the country.

So far, Wateen has been successful in obtaining subsidies of approximately PKR 1.8 billion for OFC projects and PKR 1.0 billion for Broadband projects through successful participation in competitive biddings.

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.”
