I realise that you lot may get this request fairly often, but I would appreciate if you humour me with some advice.
I've been away from Pakistan for the nearly two years. I have heard there have been some rather significant strides made in broadband accessibility for the masses. Further to this, i was wondering if some of you may advise me on my rather unusual situation.
I would like to acquire a faster-than-dialup connection for my 60 something father, who is not very tech-friendly but is reasonably adept with web-browsing and a few creating a few documents. He's fairly familiar with dialup Internet. The connection I am after would have to be something that would remain relatively trouble-free so that when I leave in nearly 3 weeks time he doesn't curse me. I have heard through him about Wateen Wireless which he saw an advertisement for, I have tried accessing the said web site but have found it rather unfriendly for dialup users. Would someone be so kind as to post the setup costs and monthly subscription charges for their lowest "broadband" package bearing in mind that my father would be a light downloader (the occasional operating system update which I will do remotely via my computer in London.) Any other thoughts on other ISP packages would also be appreciated.
p.s My father lives in I-9/1 in Islamabad
