As Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir waited for more than a year, now Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has finally started working on exceeding its 3G & 4G services to these magnificent regions of Pakistan. This initiative will further increase the subscriber base of each operator and people of these areas will enjoy high-speed broadband services.
Gilgit-Baltistan & Azad Kashmir to Enjoy 3G and 4G Services Soon
In order to deploy the 3G & 4G services, PTA has already begun the process and indicated on its official website as:
“The operators have covered most part of the AJ&K and have also extended services to main localities of GB. Now, as a result of this, mobile services with data facilities are available in far-flung mountainous areas of the country.The process for Next Generation Mobile services Award has already begun and soon people of AJ&K and GB will enjoy the high-speed wireless broadband services in their areas.”
The delay in this step happened due to the the required consent from Kashmir Council; which has now permitted PTA to deploy high-speed broadband. The residents of Gilgit-Baltistan & Azad Kashmir are soon going to be benefited from 3G & 4G; which will be helpful to them in many areas.
Internationally, 5G is going to be launched soon but still Pakistan stood on good position while successfully deploying 3G and 4G and now in northern areas as well. We expects that soon the left over auction of 4G is also going to be done.
