Mobile internet is much cheaper than broadband, our telcos offers cheap packages which covers everything i.e sms, internet. Same thing in India as well.

350 million by 2100 is a scary proposition. Where are we going to fit all those people and how will they be fed.

Famine has never occurred in the Indus Valley in it's entire history as far as I'm aware. If our growth rate doesn't come down faster, we're certainly headed in that direction. (ie. Thar)

You know 150 years ago some German scientist wrote that that a hundred years from then the world won't survive as there won't be enough food,rock salt or horses for people to ride on. Well, the world is still standing. Mankind adapts and progresses .At that time(Year 2100) they will probably be growing genetically modified crops which don't need water and give 10 harvests a year instead of one.Water will be synthetically manufactured etc etc.
As for the figure; it is mere speculation. The population of Pakistan is expected to stabilise around mid century and then start declining. The birth rates will decrease even faster with increasing socio-economic changes and rising education.

The WB predicted thatvPakistan’s population to be about 195mill by 2017- however, if there was a proper Cenus it could be up to 280 Million if not even more. Pakistan With it’s massive fertile land can easily have a population of up to 700 Mill like Nigeria by 2100 if places like Sindh and Balochistan are developed more properly. But again, An over crowded country is never good.

Pakistan does not have "massive fertile land", rather we have a limited amount of fertile land which is very rich in nutrients and irrigated by several massive rivers. The reason for this rich fertility is the 8000 years of continuous farming that have occurred in the Indus Valley since the first pastorolists arrived in Mehrgarh in around 7000 BCE.

This is why in the entire 9000 years of history of the Indus Valley, we've never heard of any major famine...that is until the European colonialism began in 1842 coupled with advances in medical technology and science. This led to people living longer, which meant a sudden boom in the population - our water table and current available fertile land will not be able to sustain anything above 250 million. Furthermore, during European colonialism, a culture of "moving to the cities" occurred as industrialization replaced agriculture as the prime type of work.

This means more fertile agricultural land will be destroyed around cities (ie. Lahore).

Pakistan has to curb its growth rate...ideally, we should be around 150 million. Nothing more than that.
