PTA Seeks for Communication Agency as 3G Auction Nears

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority is looking for services of a communication agency for the publicity and promotion of 3G license auction that it is planning later this year.

An advert published in various newspaper asked communication agencies, of international repute, to submit their proposals with the PTA by October 15th, a time by when PTA is likely to have hired the consultant for the 3G auction.

PTA in its advert said that agency will have to assist the authority in making the 3G auction a success. PTA will require the communication agency to publicize, market, handle public relations and digital communication to maximize the profits that PTA can earn from 3G auction.

Chairman PTA in a senate standing committee held this week reaffirmed that authority will be able to conduct 3G auction by December 2012. He said that local and international telecom players have shown considerable interest in acquiring 3G license in Pakistan. Chairman revealed that selection of consultant for 3G auction will be finalized by October 15th, 2012.

Below is the advert that PTA published in papers:

  • Raja also promised to eradicate Loadshedding in December 2008,
    December 2009. This is gonna happen in December as well. So what I am looking forward is “Nothing is happening” (especially when it comes to 3G)!

  • oh it is very bad to all pakistani people . took at india they are using 4g now. you poor pakistani can not have 3g yet . here in bd we also using 3g . i thing in 2012 3g is older you pakistani people have to go for 4g lte now.

    • Bro there in no benefit for ordinary man in using 3g or 4lte . I live in Canada and its 4g here but i have rarely seen people using internet on Mobile because its too expensive . furthermore bcz of 4g telcos charge for incoming calls here. So , bro there is no possibilty that ordinary man will be able to use 3g or 4g in pak .
