Islamabad—Sub-Committee of the Senate Standing Committee on Information Technology and Telecommunications Thursday expressed satisfaction over the coverage of 4500 km long optic fiber in the Province of Balochistan and asked departments concerned to lay down remaining 1000 optic fiber without delay.
The committee meeting, chaired by Taj Muhammad Afridi, asked the Law Enforcement Agencies to ensure cooperation for completing the remaining optic fiber coverage area.
The meeting also expressed its dismay over the absence of representatives of LEAs in the meeting and decided to hold next meeting in Quetta. The meeting was informed that the Ministry of IT had the plan to lay 5,600 kilometer fiber optic cable in different areas of Balochistan, out of which 4,500 kilometer area could be covered, while 1,000 fiber optic could not be laid due to law and order issues in certain areas of the province.—APP
