Dear All,

Information and communication technologies revolution has opened a whole new bunch of platforms to enhance public interaction. The available set of tools is assisting institutes to enable more broad participation from public at large in respective discussion and deliberation.

As you may already be aware that I have launched my personal blog (http://www.dryaseen.pk) to develop means of communication with community, providing them a forum to interact and share their valuable thoughts / suggestions on numerous topics related to ICT industry of the country.

I would like to invite your contributions to accelerate the Broadband and Electronic Services in the country and identify probable mechanism to encourage introduction of a venture capital fund for to endorse ICT entrepreneurship and support upcoming talent of the country.

I welcome your suggestions for a National Broadband Plan and introduction of innovative e-applications / services in the country.

Please share your fruitful thoughts by dropping an e-mail address [email protected].


  • main problem is the density of the signals in an area and the respective population size. more users are sitting on a unit which keeps the speed very low.

  • PTA is doing excellent job I must say!

    There are a lot of suggestions on behalf of PTA, but the first and foremost that I want to tell you is that please ban all illegal and sexsual explicit content based wesites in our country. You are the person who can do that and you are responsible for that. Our new generation is being destroyed morally and physically too. You are a muslim yourself and you should have done that earlier.
    Its not an impossible thing to ban bad websites but then why it hasn’t come to your notice yet??????

    Excellent Dr sb, we need only few agents of change to turn around the fate of this poor country. You have pressed the right button, ICT4D is the rapid response to all our immediate issues and challanges like health,education,economic empowerment and good governance. On these FOUR pillar with power of ICT as their backbone we can improve upon immediately but the biggest challange is to change the mindset of decision makers to accept this change. I suggest we may celebrate year 2012 as “Year of ICTs” and try to bring this change in Pakistan.

    We in NGO call it “ICT4ALL”, any one can download the concept paper from http://www.evillage.net.pk
