The internet in Afghanistan is expensive, erratic and still frowned upon by many of the country's clerics.

But increasingly, Afghans are taking to the net to try to project to the world a broader image of the country than that portrayed by the international media.

The BBC's Najieh Ghulami meets the Afghans who live on the world wide web and discovers how big an impact it’s having.

She also looks at how increased internet penetration will help the country's development.

First broadcast on 17 March 2010
