Internet with its massive repository of knowledge and potential benefits is a must for educational institutions. Unfortunately in Pakistan, many Universities are without Internet access. To provide immediate relief, while larger plans were under consideration of the National IT Task Force, ISPAK, under a commitment with the Ministry of Science & Technology, provided free dedicated Internet connections to the Universities and Educational Institutions selected in consultation with the University Grants Commission. PTCL provided the last mile connectivity for delivery of such access. The speed of such connections was from 33.6 to 128 kbps for 24 hours unlimited use and every ISP provided connectivity to one institution at a minimum, depending upon the size of bandwidth the ISP was obtaining from PTCL. This practice continued until recently when Universities were provided Internet bandwidth by the Government funded Educational Intranet and Pakistan Educational Intranet Project.
