The Higher Education Commission has taken a number of initiatives for broadening the reach of Information Technology to meet the IT challenges of the country, especially for the education sector. The Higher Education Commission has recently signed a MoU with PTCL for the provisioning of Broadband DSL connections to students, faculty members and administrative staff at substantially subsidized rates at their residence. This DSL facility/service under this MoU offers Broadband connection at 256 kbps, 512 kbps and 1 Mbps with a 30% discount on prevailing PTCL commercial rates against each capacity.

The students, faculty members and staff of university can avail this opportunity and benefit from this exclusive offer. Applicants from the University can apply online through this link, http://bncc.ptcl.net.pk:88/. Once the application is submitted by the applicant, it will be forwarded via email to the Registrar of the University for verification. The Registrar will be issued an administrative user id and password by PTCL for this verification purpose.

For further information in this connection, please contact the IT Division of HEC through email (broadband@hec.gov.pk).
