The Benefits of Establishing a Mobile Service Company in Afghanistan

If you are thinking of setting up a mobile service company in Afghanistan, there are several benefits that you will be able to enjoy. These benefits include increased job opportunities, better telecommunications quality and coverage, and a healthier and more educated society.

Improved Telecommunications Quality and Coverage

Since an American Entrepreneur, Ehsan Bayat began to invest in the Afghan economy, the country’s telecommunications sector has experienced a sharp increase. Investment from the public and private sectors has benefited it and created more than 60,000 new employment. To realize this sector’s full potential, additional development is necessary.

The telecom industry in Afghanistan is a vital part of the country’s economy. In the last decade, four telecom companies have invested more than $1 billion in the country.

Investing in a new telecommunications network is an important step toward gaining increased Internet access and bringing higher-quality services to the people of Afghanistan. While the Afghan government is implementing a plan to connect 99% of the population by 2009, there are still many areas where connectivity could be improved.

Increased Job Opportunities

The number of mobile subscribers in Afghanistan has skyrocketed in the last five years. It is no surprise that the country’s mobile phone operators are clamoring for a slice of the action. Four telecom providers have invested more than $1 billion in the country. In addition to telecom operators, the government has taken the lead by establishing a telecommunications regulatory authority.

As with most other nations, Afghanistan has high unemployment rates and a shortage of skilled workers. There is no denying the fact that Afghanistan is one of the poorest countries on the planet. But the country’s telecommunications sector has shown significant growth since the end of the war. 

One of the more interesting aspects of this nascent telecommunications industry was the development of a telecommunications development fund. Using a novel model, the fund aims to improve the livelihoods of poorer citizens in remote areas by providing access to mobile communications and other telecommunications services.

Healthier, Better Educated, And More Prosperous Society

The government of Afghanistan is expected to maintain restrictive policies on women and girls. However, the resumption of off-budget aid has cushioned the impact of the humanitarian crisis. Some economic indicators are also improving. Nonetheless, the economy is still projected to remain high in inflation. Due to increased global commodity prices and supply constraints, the economy is also projected to move on a low growth path.

Girls’ enrolment in schools is very low in Afghanistan. Traditional norms and insecurity are key factors limiting their access to education. In addition, girls continue to marry young. Furthermore, the country’s need for more schools and teachers hinders their education. Only 16 percent of the country’s schools are all-girls. Most children have to walk long distances to get to class. Moreover, many schools are not equipped with sanitation facilities. Consequently, students receive lower-quality education.

Internet Access

The use of mobile phones and other internet-related technologies is increasing in Afghanistan. The telecommunications and internet sectors have created more than 60,000 jobs, contributing to day laborers’ ability to set up businesses.

Social media has played an important role in influencing change in Afghanistan. Users can share their opinions, debate, and learn about different perspectives.

A national fiber-optic network ring will increase high-speed Internet access and telephone services. This will allow the Afghan people to explore new ideas and counter misinformation.

Similarly, women have more opportunities to express their opinions online. However, they need to remain cautious. They also must avoid posting personal pictures online.
