Rural Telecom Programme

Benefits of Rural Telecom Programme

USF has been running rural telecom projects to provide basic telephony and data services in several remote areas of Pakistan thus creating opportunities also for the individuals in rural areas to get equal access to ICT facilities.

Rural telecom projects have brought the focus of telecom operators from urban towards rural population. Access to services are being offered by the telecom operators, both through shared access points as appropriate, and to all customers requesting service in the areas covered through the support of the USF, at published national tariffs.

Moreover, through rural telecom programme, USF is triggering investment in more coverage and services being provided by telecom operators.
