#Internet4GilgitBaltistan Trends as People Demand Internet for GB

The internet is a basic necessity these days, no matter how remote a region is. With everything moving online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 24/7 internet is a must. The students have to go to far off areas – some even have to climb mountains – for internet connectivity to attend online classes.

Gilgit-Baltistan is a heavenly province with gushing streams, massive glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and some of the most beautiful lakes in Pakistan. The province, however, lacks quality internet services despite the fact that its tourist spots are some of the most beautiful places in the country with a large number of people visiting these places, especially in summers.

The social media users from GB are also bashing SCO for providing painfully slow services despite enjoying a monopoly in terms of internet services in the region. Hashtag #Internet4GilgitBaltistan is currently among the top trends on Twitter as the people of Gilgit-Baltistan raise their voices to get quality internet services in the province.

  • Government should make a local internet like China…. Indian spies have been using VPN and creating a serious security problems…. Huawei and ZTE can help Pakistan in intranet

  • PTI shall be contesting the soon to be held elections in Gilgit Baltistan, where PMLN has been ruling in the past. The demand for a faster internet service in GB is fully justified and can increase the vote bank of PTI if addressed quickly enough.

  • The SCO is now making centers for students to access internet and take classes. I wonder what’s the use of closing universities when all students have to converge in one place for online classes.


  • Pakistan Government should invest on there it is a big opportunity for earning high incomes.
