No, they don't. The whole population of Baluchitan is less than Lahore. I am presuming the picture is of the network of a private business that chases rupees.

i was half joking with the title of the post. of course a telecommunications network is going to follow the $ (or rupees in this case). but the larger point is hardly facetious: that there has been a startling lack of development (educational, infrastructural, commercial) in the province that is, in part, fueling the nationalist insurgency there.
