Internet Service Providers in Pakistan

  • According to Science Fiction Author William Gibson, “The future is already here, it is just not evenly distributed.” Pakistan IT industry is not as much greater as compared to the rest but when we see the annual growth then surely it is moving at high speed. Although, PTCL is one of the largest shareholders of the internet service providers in the country, but many others are doing well.

    When we make the list of internet service providers in Pakistan, we do not find a large number of providers. Those who are providing internet services are restricted to metropolitans and some developed cities. The main reasons behind this are a lack of infrastructure in remote areas.
