AWCC launches 3G services in Kunar’s Narai district



(Last Updated On: September 14, 2022)

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.

AWCC started operations in Afghanistan in 2002. It has quickly expanded communication and internet services across the country.

In its ongoing quest to provide world-class mobile communication services to Afghanistan, AWCC has continued to expand services across the country.

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.

The company is also directly responsible for the creation of 100,000 jobs throughout Afghanistan.

Afghanistan withdrawal probe sparks anxiety within Biden administration: US’s McCaul



(Last Updated On: April 12, 2024)

US Representative Michael McCaul, chairman of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, believes the probe into America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has sparked anxiety within the Biden administration.

“Are we going to get scalps? I don’t know, but are we going to hold people accountable? Yeah. And I think at the end of the day, my intent is to make sure that this never happens again,” McCaul told Axios in an interview.

US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee launched an investigation into America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan several months ago.

Democrats have slammed Republican investigations like the Biden impeachment inquiry as witch hunts. But Republicans argue the Afghanistan probe has yielded evidence that’s hard for the White House to ignore.

Meanwhile, Daily Mail has reported that hours of private testimony by two of the top State Department officials who oversaw the evacuation from Afghanistan lays bare the confusion at the heart of the operation, and how they failed to respond to warning signs that the Islamic Emirate was sweeping across the country.

Brian McKeon, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, until he stepped down in December 2022, admitted that officials were never able to confirm how many Americans were on the ground and would need help.

Banning girls’ education has caused economic issues: private school officials



(Last Updated On: April 11, 2024)

Officials from private schools say banning education of girls above the sixth grade has resulted in serious financial problems for these schools.

According to them, with the ban on education for girls above the sixth grade, not only schools but also teachers and the transportation cycle have suffered economic problems.

Meanwhile, girls who have been barred from going to school ask the Islamic Emirate to reopen the gates of schools and universities to them by creating a suitable plan.

“I request the authorities to reopen schools and universities for girls so that our country can progress,” said a female student.

“My request to the Islamic Emirate is that it should reopen schools above the sixth grade,” said another student.

Although a few days have passed since the beginning of the 1403 academic year, the IEA has not given the green light to reopen schools for girls.

“Some problems have different causes in the education sector, there are some restrictions in the women’s work sector, which are either based on Sharia rules or based on economic issues. The government is committed to solving these issues,” said IEA’s spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.

Earlier, Amnesty International emphasized the need to immediately reopen schools and universities for girls.
