Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is working on a strategy to introduce a Ghost Caller Blockade system to protect users from unwanted callers, said PTA Chairman Dr Muhammad Yaseen while talking to local news channel.
“One operator has already initiated the service, while others are being pursued to follow the suit as soon as possible aiming to ensure provision of quality services to all strata of society” added Dr. Yaseen.
He said PTA would soon establish a special Consumer Protection Cell to register and redress complaints of consumers regarding extra charges by the operators. Now-a-days negotiations are underway with the operators and consumers to formulate regulations and the Consumer Protection Cell would start operations soon after completion of the negotiations, he said.
In a bid to lure renowned vendors to initiate mobile manufacturing in Pakistan, he added that a research cell has also been established in the PTA for the purpose. Responding to a question, he assured mobile consumers would soon be provided internet services on reduced rates within a period of one month.
Pakistan would be made a hub for international mobile internet traffic. Transit services would be offered to China, central Asian States, far eastern countries and India. This will generate revenues and also provide cheap services to country’s mobile internet users, he concluded.
