Ministry Asked to Speed Up 3G Auction Process, IM to Get Revised

3GAccording to recommendations of the sub-committee, the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Information Technology (IT) has directed the IT Ministry to speed up the process to auction 3G licenses by hiring international consultant.

For which, ProPakistani has learned, a meeting of the Auction Supervisory Committee (ASC) is scheduled today to finalize modalities for hiring international consultant to award 3G licenses.

Standing committee unanimously approved the recommendations of the sub-committee primarily aimed at ensuring transparency in the process of 3G license bidding. The committee directed the ministry to expedite the auction process in the light of recommendations submitted by the sub-committee and approved by the main committee.

The international consultant, once appointed, would determine and review the auction process from scratch.

PTA was further directed to follow the best international practices in awarding 3-G contracts and with the objective of maximizing revenue, efficiency and competitiveness in the best national interest.

The PTA must observe the performance and financial viability of existing mobile phone companies before considering them to qualify for the bidding process. The Ministry of IT was recommended to ensure that infrastructure sharing is mandatory for the license holders to avoid environment pollution and encourage economies of scale.

The PTA was suggested to avoid awarding more than one block to one operator as this would be anti-competitive. Alternatively, PTA must impose the condition to launch 4-G technology on two blocks brought by any one operator.

The PTA should make criteria for appointment of international consultant transparent as well as complete the hiring process at the earliest so that the auction process of 3G could be completed without further delay.

    Didn’t I say (and even bet on it) already in my numerous previous postings that this 3G thing will not happen in 2012 as it was promised earlier? An illusion!

    I bet again: 3G licenses will NOT be auctioned/released in 2012.

    Heaven above, this 3G thing. We are living without it and would be always. Nobody has died for it nor anyone will be. The only good thing about the arrivaling news for 3G is that the companies who were not willing to give packages less than a hundred are now offering merrily the daily bundles just for 5 to 10 Rupees :’)
