Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said Saturday broadband users in the country have shot up to 100 million.
The telecommunication body, in a statement, said 87% of the population has access to the internet at the lowest rates. Moreover, the average download speed is 17.7 Mbps, and the upload speed is 11.3 Mbps.
However, the global broadband speed test site Ookla, sharing February statistics, says Pakistan's average fixed broadband download speed was 11.35 Mbps, while its upload speed stood at 10.7 Mbps.
PTA added the number of internet users in Pakistan was less than 2 million in 2012. However, after 3G was rolled out the number of users in 2014 rose to 16 million.
