Afghanistan is in the midst of its own fiber optic revolution.
It’s also where you can watch the World Cup of Hockey.
The country has just one fiber optic provider, the NPTEL, which was set up to provide access to the country’s national broadband network.
But a new fiber optic service was launched by a consortium led by China Telecom and China Mobile last year, offering fiber optic broadband in a variety of markets.
Now, the world is going to watch as Afghanistan’s national network comes to life.
The National Broadband Network is expected to be the first major infrastructure project in the country since the Taliban took power in 2001.
But the country has a long history of building and maintaining infrastructure.
The country has two major telecommunications providers, the Pakistan Telecom and the China Telecom, which were established in the 1970s and 1970s respectively.
Afghanistan’s government had previously tried to get an internet provider to launch its national network, but the government had failed.
In 2015, the government signed a $2.7 billion deal with a private Chinese telecom, Tencent, to develop a fiber optic network.
However, China Telecom has been in control of Afghanistan’s telecommunications infrastructure since 2011.
The new network will be based in a rural area of northern Afghanistan, known as Khost, and is expected provide more than 5 gigabits per second (Mbps) of internet speed.
That is faster than the average American’s internet connection, according to the company’s president, Jia Yueting.
China’s internet speed is more than 100 times faster than Afghanistan’s.
However the country also has a population of more than 1.2 billion, making Afghanistan’s population larger than that of the United States.
The world is expected be able to watch the game on the new network from just outside of Kabul, with live streaming being available to all viewers.
While China Telecom is expected take a cut of the new internet revenues, the new national fiber optic project is being financed by the World Bank.
The World Bank is the largest development lender in the world.
Africa’s most populous country has been grappling with an economic crisis since the collapse of its mining and oil industries in the 1980s.
It has also been a haven for militant groups like al-Qaida and the Islamic State.
The conflict in Afghanistan has left more than 10,000 people dead, and the Taliban have been blamed for the worst attacks in the nation’s history.
