Startup Pakistan: On Friday, the federal ministry of information technology has received the approval of an Rs8 billion budget for about nine broadband and optical fiber projects across the country to cover 7.5 million new users of internet service.

The Universal Service Fund board of directors huddled over nine of these projects for which they have green-lighted the funds to extend IT services in areas that lack access to the internet.

Rs2.6 billion of these funds will be used for broadband services while another Rs4.98 billion are set for optical fiber.

The meeting said that some 7.5 million people from the various districts of all provinces will benefit from these projects and a total area of 37,790 square kilometers is covered.
