Fieldwork and access to internet

I spent some wonderful first four days in Islamabad (Pakistani capital). I met with heads of Polio campaigns in UNICEF and WHO. Very wise and passionate people. I am waiting for feedback on my questionnaire (quantitative cross-sectional) from local health personnel and WHO / UNICEF.

From Peshawar:

I planned that I would be an excellent blogger during my fieldwork, but the slow and poor internet connection in Peshawar (Khyber-Pukhtoonkhwa) is stopping me. I just found out that the wireless internet connection provided by PTCL (EVO) in Peshawar has 1/5th of the speed provided to other cities in Pakistan. And the USB provided in Peshawar does not work in any other Pakistani city. I wonder why…….

Finally, I would like to say that I am satisfied with my work so far. Fieldwork is more exciting and fun than expected.

P.S. I will upload pictures when I have a fast enough internet connection.
