Internet usage in Pakistan is likely to see three digit growth rate in next couple of years, while it is anticipated that total internet base will hit 22 million mark by year 2013, out of which 4.3 million users will be using broadband Internet, said Dr. Yaseen, Chairman PTA while addressing a ceremony today.
It was told that PTA is working in collaboration with educational institutes to get the new generation familiar with internet.
Internet is going to be the next growing industry in Pakistan after Telecom, specifically in a scenario when USF is putting massive efforts to take internet to rural areas of Pakistan.
Update: It merits mentioning here that as per a Internet World Stats there are already 17.5 million internet users, in Pakistan. However, ISPAK believe there are 5 to 6 million internet users in Pakistan – as of now.
PTA is already planning to know the exact number of internet users in Pakistan – which is apparently still not known to anyone.
