In line with AWCC’s (Afghan Wireless Communication Company) ongoing efforts to take internet services to all corners of Afghanistan, the company on Sunday launched 4G internet services in northern Sar-e-Pul province.
Local AWCC officials said the aim was to facilitate communication in the remote province of Afghanistan.
“Fortunately we launched 4G services at a ceremony today with the participation of government officials,” said Yafis Saqib, zonal director of AWCC in the northern part of the country.
Local residents welcomed the move.
“It is really a good move. The services are valuable. Sar-e-Pul residents had been facing internet problems here,” said Mullah Nadir Haqjo, deputy governor of Sar-e-Pul.
“In today’s world where communication and technology is essential, internet services were needed to become 4G. The people of Sar-e-Pul are very happy,” said Mohammad Ibrahim, another local resident.
AWCC officials said that they have also launched 3G services in a remote village in Kohistanat district of Sar-e-Pul province.
“Fortunately, AWCC has wide coverage in Sar-e-Pul province. We are now in Ganjiha village which had satellite internet and people were facing difficulties,” Saqib said.
“Thanks to AWCC. There were no communication services here. People used to go to Mazar-e-Sharif to make a call. Now the problems have been solved,” said Amir Hamza, a resident of Ganjiha village.
AWCC has made enormous strides in recent months to bring internet services, including 4G services, to remote areas in Afghanistan. This latest move comes just days after the company rolled out 3G services in Khulm district of Samangan province.—Ariana news
