The government of Pakistan finalizes its policy directive for the much awaited auction of 3G licenses in the country.
According to Minister of State for Information Technology Anusha Rehman, the four mobile phone companies in the country had shown interest in the auction. The minister added that the policy directive would be approved by the Federal Cabinet Advisory Committee on Thursday.
Rehman added that the stipulation to introduce 4G into the Pakistani market would also be part of the auction.
