ABOUT US

Wireless for Communities (W4C) Pakistan is an initiative of Internet Society (ISOC), Asia-Pacific Bureau and COMSATS Internet Services (CIS) that utilizes low-cost Wi-Fi based technology to connect and empower rural and underserved communities in Pakistan.

ISOC has been successfully implementing Wireless for Communities program in South Asia since 2010 – which has won two International awards from Public Affairs Asia and ITU/MCMC.
