There is only 2 percent growth in Direct Subscriber Line (DSL) during January to March 2009. The total number of DSL subscribers in Pakistan is 272,626. People are still focusing on Dial up Internet and Dial Up internet user base stood consistent at 3.7 million. Though there is no growth in this number but still its over 90 percent of total Internet Users in Pakistan.

It is expected that the number of DSL, WiMax users will increase this year because of many new entrants and low price packages offered by Internet Operators. According to 2008 statistics, DSL holds the major share of 59 percent and WiMax stood at 20 percent market share and the number is growing fast. It is also estimated the the number of broadband users within 2 years will reach 5 million.
