Its my passion that each & every person should be able to enjoy the fruits of ICTs – rich or poor, far or near.
Using skills & expertise developed as CEO Universal Service Fund (USF) & earlier as Country-Head of Siemens Telecom in Pakistan, I work as ICT consultant advising governments in Asia & Africa on ICT Policy & Regulatory issues, particularly Universal Access/Service. I offer these services directly, as well as thru international organisations like ITU, USAID, CTO, World Bank, ADB etc.
I often get invited to speak at international forums on these topics which I love doing!
For those who may not be aware, USFs are created to fulfill governments’ obligation of providing ICT services in un-served (mainly rural) areas, where it is not viable for private sector Telcos.
