ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Jazz, Pakistan’s number one 4G operator and the largest internet and broadband service provider, has collaborated with the Universal Service Fund (USF) to provide 4G services on M-3 and M-5 motorways.

Similarly, through the M-5 project, 4G connectivity will be provided to 78.85 kms of an unserved road segment that passes through the districts of Multan, Bahawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan, Kashmore, Ghotki, and Sukkur.

Aamir Ibrahim, CEO of Jazz, said in a message, “Jazz has invested $560 million during the last two years mainly to expand its 4G footprint in rural and semi-urban areas. This is in line with our mission to bridge the digital divide and to collaborate with the government of Pakistan in helping realize the Digital Pakistan vision. This project will bring safety, convenience, and connectivity to commuters on these motorways, and our fellow citizens living in adjoining districts and villages.”
