3G & 4G for Gilgit-Baltistan

A public sector telecommunications service provider, The Special Communication Organization (SCO) in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) has announced to provide 3G and 4G mobile internet services in Gilgit-Baltistan by the end of this year. Approval for 3G and 4G internet services in this area is just two months away from the federal government. 80% of the up gradation work has been completed on the infrastructure of the region and the remaining work is being done with effective pace.

In this age of technology, it is heartbreaking to admit that Gilgit-Baltistan, which constitutes a very large part of the country, is still deprived of basic internet 3G and 4G access. It raises a lot of questions regarding the educational future of the children in the area. With internet becoming the basic necessity to education and career, children having minimum access to internet are not good for their futures.

Cities of Pakistan like Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad already have 3G and 4G internet services. However, there are still some problems when it comes to sims-based internet services. Nonetheless, situation is way too better than Gilgit-Baltistan. With government ensuring that Gilgit-Baltistan would be having 3G and 4G internet services by the end of 2016, good things can be expected in the region. This would readily increase the business of smartphones in Gilgit-Baltistan because more people would be interested in having access to this service with the most technological mode of communication through cellular internet.
