Government of Pakistan has come up with the solution of never ending issues of mobile operator services. The State Ministry for IT and Telecom aims to provide better mobile services by supplying the appropriate frequency spectrum. The goal is to facilitate the users as per international standards to improve the digital economy of the country.
Ministry Wants Mobile Operators to Provide Better Services to Users: Anusha Rehman
The minister Anusha Rehman showed her keen interest in the matter and referred to the advisory committee that they would continue to work proactively to provide the necessary impetus for the growth of telecom services in Pakistan including urban and rural communities. The ministry also discussed the auction plan with its advisory committee. The committee after the complete market assessment, emerging market scenario, analysis by PTA, FAB and MoITT drafted policy directive for the auction within the current financial year, 2015-2016.
Anusha Rehman in the meeting agreed to auction plan and said that;
“After discussions, it was agreed to consider auctioning 10 MHz of the 850 MHz band in the first phase,”
It seems like the government has realized the growing demand for data services. As in less than two years the broadband subscriber base, which was 3.5 million in 2014, has now crossed 28 million and it’s still increasing. Therefore it’s a very knowledgeable step by the ministry.
