DSL rolled out in Mazar-i-Sharif and new police building is opened in Kabul

Afghanistan’s Minister of Telecommunication and Information Technology, Amirzai Sangin, and Balkh Governor, Atta Muhammad Noor inaugurated the Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) in Mazar-i-Sharif earlier this week. Mazar-i-Sharif is one of 6 cities in which the ministry is implementing DSL. With DSL, Afghans will have access to high speed internet access. They will have faster access to the web as well as digital telephone lines. In Mazar-i-Sharif, thousands of people will benefit from the technology. With more people using telecommunications, the ministry is able to collect more revenues and thus further improve the Afghan economy. Amirzai Sangin also stated that his ministry is planning to introduce 3G mobile phone services.

Also this week, a newly-constructed building for the faculty of border police was inaugurated at the Kabul Police Academy. The cost of the building was 6 million euros; financial support for the construction came from Germany and Canada. The building consists of administrative rooms, classrooms, a masjid, a gymnasium and a hotel. The building will be able to provide housing for up to 2,600 cadets.
