Warid Announces its 4G LTE
Warid Telecom was planning to launch 4G LTE (long-term evolution) to compete with the 3G/4G license-holders, and it looks like it has already taken the first step. According to Warid’s website, it will soon start its 4G LTE service in Pakistan by saying that the ‘Best is yet to come’.
Since Warid did not take part in the bidding for 3G and 4G spectra, and there were long talks going on between PTA and Warid for permission to go for the launch of 4G (LTE). and now Warid Announces its 4G LTE
According to PTA:
[pull_quote_center]The existing license of Warid is technology neutral but it does not mean that it is service neutral. All newly-launched services require PTA’s consent. For this, Warid will have to send in a proper request.[/pull_quote_center]
Whereas a Warid official told Dawn that the company, according to its license requirement, would notify to the PTA about the launch of 4G LTE since it (Warid) had enough spectrum available with it for the new technology.
A lot of things are going to change after the Warid’s announcement of 4G LTE
