Residents in Narai district of Kunar province have finally gotten 3G internet services – thanks to Afghan Wireless Communication Company (AWCC).

AWCC officials said 20,000 families in the district will now benefit from the newly rolled-out 3G service.

They said that 4G services will also be launched in the district in the near future.

“There will also be 4G services in Narai, Machmanai, Barikot and Shangar,” said Ataullah Sahil, head of AWCC in eastern zone.

“Narai people can access 3G services after 20 years and AWCC has become the first company to provide the service.”

Residents in Narai district welcomed the launch of 3G services in the district.

“There were no such services here. We used to go to Asadabad or Nangarhar to call our relatives,” said Mohammad Yosuf, a resident of Narai district.

Another resident who welcomed the move said however that “the rates are high.” He appealed for a reduction in costs.

“We are very happy about AWCC providing internet services here,” said Zikrullah, a resident of Narai district.

Meanwhile, Sifatullah Sajad, provincial director of communications in Kunar, said that they were working to help reduce prices and increase the quality of services.

Recently, a new customer care center was opened in Kandahar. According to Noor Ahmad Shah Sadat, the provincial director of AWCC: “We have always made efforts to provide services, especially to people who are in remote areas, and who have been deprived of telecommunication services for years.”

Founded by Dr Ehsanollah Bayat, AWCC provides voice and data services to over 5 million consumers and businesses.

Over the past 20 years, AWCC has driven the rapid growth of Afghanistan’s communications market and today, the company delivers rapid, reliable and robust HD Voice, 2G, High-Speed 3G and 4G/LTE Data, Internet and My Money ™ Mobile Payment Services to its clients in all of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces.

US President Joe Biden has extended for one more year the national emergency declared in his executive order with respect to the widespread humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and the “potential for deepening economic collapse” in the country.

On February 11, 2022, Biden by an executive order declared a national emergency to deal with the “unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States” constituted by the widespread humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and the potential for a deepening economic collapse in the country, the White House said.

“The widespread humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan — including the urgent needs of the people of Afghanistan for food security, livelihoods support, water, sanitation, health, hygiene, shelter and settlement assistance, and COVID-19-related assistance, among other basic human needs — and the potential for a deepening economic collapse in Afghanistan continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States,” White House said in a notice released on February 3.

“In addition, the preservation of certain property of Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB) held in the United States by United States financial institutions is of the utmost importance to addressing this national emergency and the welfare of the people of Afghanistan,” the notice said.

“Various parties, including representatives of victims of terrorism, have asserted legal claims against certain property of DAB or indicated in public court filings an intent to make such claims. This property is blocked under Executive Order 14064.”
