    • Shut up. If you don’t want it then keep your opinion with you because we NEED it. Think. Always think before commenting on the internet Waleed. 😃 Just a friendly response.

    • I’m ready to pay, atleast I will have some semblance of a stable connection, local ones are a nightmare

  • IF the news actually materializes, this could be a game changer for most of the Pakistanis, especially the ones in rural and remote area residents. God bless the brains in our Govt for facilitating this marvelous privilege. Special thanks to the US Govt and Elan Musk for their consideration. @imranigra
