The Afghani administration has revealed how it plans to spend the Telecom Development Fund (TDF), mainly on the expansion of wireless and landline services in underserved rural areas. According to the terms of Afghani GSM licences, cellcos are required to pay 2.5% of their net revenues into the TDF; to date the fund has accumulated around USD26 million. Five rural provinces – Badakhshan, Paktika, Zabul, Daikundi, and Nooristan – will be among the first to benefit from the fund.
