Ghor residents complain slow internet speed

FIROZKOH (Pajhwok): A number of people in western Ghorinfo-icon province say the government did not pay attention for the improvement of information technology infrastructure and internet speed in their province.

Internet users in Ghor say that telecom companies did not provide them internet service with adequate speed despite paying a huge amount of money. They asked the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) to improve internet service in their province.

Najiba, a resident of Firozkoh, the provincial capital, told Pajhwok Afghan News, “We really tired of slow internet speed, if we want to watch or download a video we should wait for hours or download fails,”

Nazar Mohammad Habibi, a library owner in Ghor, said internet was very helpful for collecting information but their province was not provided with proper internet services besides other problems it faced with.

Besides students, journalists in Ghor also complained about slow internet speed, an issue they say was the reason of delay in publishing their reports.

Abdul Qadir Ghafori, Azadi Radio reporter in Ghor, said, “We are always faced with problems in using the internet, whenever I prepare an audio or video report, I cannot send it to the media outlet I am working with, on time due to slowness of the internet,”

He hoped the government would pay attention to the problem or at least force telecom companies to provide high quality internet services to their customers.

Mohammad Haidar Habibi, Ghor communication and information technology director, agreed with the people’s complains and said the internet services were currently very slow in the province.

He said the problem could not be solved with private telecom companies until fiber optic cable was extended to Ghor province.

Another reason behind slow internet speed is high number of its users in Ghor, but we assure the people the internet speed would be improved in the beginning of next solar yearinfo-icon, he said.

Currently only MTN and Salaam telecom companies provide 3G internet services in Ghor province.
