PTA Seminar on 3G Tomorrow

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is organizing a seminar on third generation (3G) mobile phone technology on June 10.

Minister In-charge for IT Sardar Mohammad Latif Khan Khosa will be the chief guest, while IT Secretary Naguib Ullah Malik will be the guest of honour. PTA Chairman Dr Mohammed Yaseen will chair the panel discussion.

The seminar will highlight various aspects of 3G mobile broadband services and 3G spectrum auctions in Pakistan, the statement said. Local and international experts will also deliver presentations on 3G mobile broadband services during the seminar. The objective of the event is to deliberate upon the regulatory, policy and technical challenges in connecting Pakistan through 3G mobile broadband and to get recommendations from the stakeholders.

3G mobile broadband is an important step in modernization of mobile telephone system. With the launch of 3G, in future, Pakistani cell phone subscribers will be able to transmit and receive high-speed data through their mobile phones, it said.

Since 3G networks can act as segue to proliferation of broadband in Pakistan and to facilitate the goal, the government, besides looking at the financial aspects, would be interested to make 3G spectrum licensing an attractive investment opportunity for the cellular mobile operators.

Pakistan’s 3G market has a great potential and is likely to attract even higher-than-anticipated investment during the 3G auctions, it said.A number of countries such as South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, France, Belgium, Japan, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Spain and Denmark have successfully introduced 3G services for their consumers and India has recently auctioned 3G spectrum.

    where this seminar will be?and if any one wants to attend then what to do?

  • The Truth

    3G will be a flop – the govt will not make any money on this, how can you sell a data centric technology when people complain about global content and how it affects the moraility of society. It should not happen, lets see how India and Bangladesh does and we can follow them. if they make any progress we should consider it. Also i dont think people here can afford it – especially with the price of things.

    • Mr you are totally wrong,india is providing 3G from 2008 and their minimum cost for 3.6Mbps is just Rs 250, and their users are very enjoying DSL like speed on mobile as well as on laptop wirelessly, and for your kind information PTCL is also offering EVO 3G BROADBAND with a 3.1Mbps speed and minimum package starts from RS 100/- but it can only used through usb modem, and our country should also start MOBILE 3G TECHNOLOGY for our youth to enjoy broadband in any cornor of country, it is also useful for media reporter because it can make video-call anywhere, so kindly dont stop our country from modernization and success!
