  • shahzad

    GSM spectrum in $297m and 3G for only $210m. then why it was delayed for two years. better to implement it in Zardari’s era.

    • soul

            Is k ilawa yeh Magarmach Hukmran pakistan main kuch aany hi nhi dy gay, kuon k in ko to Rishwat Kilai jati hai, Aur ptcl 3G kabhi mutarif nhi hony dy ga, kyun k jab 3G aya to PTCL walon ka Boriya Bister GOl. Aur yeh kabhi Ptcl hony nhi dy ga.

  • rashid

    any body tell me who will be the beneficiary of 3G?

    • Nomi

      Etisalat who is generating great revenue from non official 3G devices.

    • Nomi

      If 3G comes no body will buy Etisalat and PTCL 3rd Class tab. USB that needs power to broadcast 3G internet. Simply keep one phone and use internet via tethering like people doing in other world.

      • Jay Kay

        Hold down dude it isnt that easy, first the price will be too high and then data usage limit or may be they will strick with tethering like they had in US, so lets wait and see but it will be much better than ptcl so called 3G devices.

  • Stone

    Do I need to repeat myself? Or will you just refer to that article you posted with all my comments about 3G in it? LOL showing serious interest and actually buying a license are 2 different things. Logically, who would be willing to spend 210mil for a license in a country where you get Rs.80 when you recharge Rs.100 and then lose more money in taxes when you use your phone. Not to mention the service charges.

    The need of better data speeds in a country which has approx 10 mil data users on mobile sounds a little absurd. Out of the 75% mobile penetration in Pakistan, this accounts to hardly 3 or 4% of the total population if my calculation is correct. I see almost all the companies trying to push data services to the masses for at least the last 2 years but the uptake hasn’t really taken off.

    • soul

      Stone. I know these companies have invested millions of dollars in upgrading their network. i-3 telenor spent more than $700million. And yet ready to spend $700million for 3G.

      3G a definite yes for Telecom.

      • Stone

        The network upgrade was a must and a pre-planned thing not only from Telenor but Mobilink and others as well. It was not due to the 3G auction though. They had reached end of life on their networks and had severe capacity issues. Being the top 2 companies in Pakistan, they had no choice but to modernize the network. That not only increased the capacity but also meant the latest hardware in terms of technology. 3G still remains a iffy kind of situation.

        • Saad Khan

          Dont Chinese Vendors supply all operators with equipment that can enable 3G for free of charge?

  • name

    they should skip 3g completely and directly auction 4G LTE licences now

    • Hazim Faisal

      I wanna up this comment more than a billion times… only one here that makes sense if u ask me!

    • Umair

      And it wll take Another 50 Years for PTA just to Auction 4G LTE License.

      • telematics engineer

        yar first thing is our BTS are not properly upgraded to 3G and you are talking about 4G LTE think about it thanks to china HUAWEII and ZTE they screwed every thing

    • Trick’s Manager

      Its easy to say but difficult to take on..!!!

    • http://about.me/uzidon Uzair Ahmed

      Lol. Are you even serious? I respect your opinion, but let alone 4G, I am even sceptic about 3G. I wonder how much time is it going to take for 3G to develop a mainstream adoption. The rates for 4G packages start at $30 per month with a cap of 500MB internationally. How many people in Pakistan can afford the likes of such packages here at home right now? Not much, I guess.

      I think it’s good to test 3G for now and see how things work out for it. Besides, our government is never going to skip 3G because this translates into a loss of millions.

    • Adnan

      That’s the point!!
      Kudos…

    • honey

      phelle 3g sy paise baney gea pher 4g sy :P

      • Jay Kay

  • http://www.techgeeks.pk/ Rizwan Yaqoob

    This won’t make me excited until it actually happens -_-

  • Umair

    I will not believe them until there is 3G connection available to buy in the Market.They are saying things like that for a long time now.

  • Bonga

    The Govt should award 5 3G licenses – three in 2.1GHz and two in 800 MHz spectrums. While 3G has been rolled out globally, the business case and ROI has disappointed operators as they have lacked revenue generating applications and services. As an example, 3G penetration in India is only 8%, so it would be fool hardy to assume that operators in Pakistan will make any money, but a good start nonetheless. A wider 3G base will help educate the masses and operators alike, while preparing them for LTE.

  • Trick’s Manager

    3 to 4 Month Abhi Bhi 3G Aany Main Darkaar Han , …!!! Wah..!!! Kis Zamany Ki Baat Karty Ho, Dil Dukhany Ki Baat Karty Ho…!!!! Kye Bata Sakta Hai Agr 3G Aye To Nowshera Main Aye Gi?

    It is still not understandable that why Ministry of IT is not uploading its all previous and current policy directives on their website. Even within ministry things are happening in isolation and people within ministry are not aware of the things within ministry. Ministry should share such information on their website and also upload the million dollar studies and consultancies in the past. Ministry of IT have conducted lot of consultancies and studies on telecenters , e learning, ipv6 and spectrum management. But they do not share it with others because they do not have capability as well as they do not want to loose their monopoly.

  • such

    Consultancy study of Telecommunication Union on spectrum management should be readily available on the web to share with all stakeholders.These services have been procured as a result of heavy contribution not just taken as forgranted. There have been people in past who have been running their own consultancies out of these studies and MOIT has just dump these documents in their files.

    After 3G We Want DTH..

  • Ali Imran Khan

    Sabar karo logo, Sabar ka Pal Meta hota hai..

  • Jay Kay

    Take it positive, before installing it he is giving u hard time, after installation he will never come to resolve ur complaint and ull endup paying for the service which u never used and then when finally ull decide to cancel the service then they will ask you for everything which was in the box, and if u fail to match everything means everything tie clip as well they will keep charging u line rent.

  • Kamran

    i don’t think people here could afford 3g tariff..
