3G License Auction in 1 month: Hafeezur Rehman

Long awaited 3G license is likely to be auctioned in three to four weeks, reported “The Peninsula” of Qatar, citing an interview with Hafeezur Rehman, Federal Secretary for Information Technology and Telecom.

Paper further quotes that policy for launching 3G services has already been submitted to the federal cabinet, and its matter of just few weeks to auction 3G spectrum.

He said despite the global recession and a worrying security situation the government wants the 3G services to be available for the Pakistani cellular customers.

He said the base price for auction of the spectrum will be decided by the cabinet besides the policy decision whether the existing operators only will be allowed to participate or more international companies will be invited. “The; ministry has also submitted its recommendations op these matters; but the final decision rests with the federal cabinet,” he added.

He said the policy in this regard will not be discriminating for existing companies or new entrants and the base price will also be set keeping in view the international recession and market trends. He said that the 3G services will be provided in a three phase process.

      It only depends on your interest. There are many mobile users who are using unlimited GPRS internet on their mobiles but want more speed and functionality like video phone calls, better video streaming and file download speed on mobile phones. Obviously, to use 3G service, you must have a 3G enabled mobile phone.
