Khost Optic Fibre a Failure

Saturday 7 July 2018

KHOST CITY (Pajhwok Afghan News) — Some residents of south-eastern Khost province claim fibre optic and 5,000-telephone line projects have failed to deliver due the poor quality of services.

The project, which was initiated in 2011, was completed and formally inaugurated in 2017. The 3G Salaam internet and the CCN2 — cable connectivity services — are connected to the fibre optic project.

Official statistics indicate the World Bank (WB) spent $12 mln on it in Khost province but currently a handful of people are making use of the facility.

Some sources reveal only 45 people are currently using the services offered by the investment-intensive project. The dismally low number of subscribers has exploded the myth.
