Sher Shah Suri laid the foundation of a well laid road network in the Indian sub continent, and present day Grand Trunk Road (GT Road) is attributed to his genius which connected Kabul with Calcutta as far back as 16th century A.D. The British added much more during their almost over 100 years rule of India, in the form of railways, roads, sea ports, radio stations and postage/mail system. Pakistan on its independence from the British inherited a fairly developed road/rail network, which has since been improved and developed to match any modern communication network around the world, specially the telecommunication network.
