  • Launch a complaint they will close it without any justification or feedback from you marking it completely resolved corrupt telecom authority

  • Here’s nothing is true in this news statements about that PTA has resolved 96% of complaints about telecom networks. One big example of its false information is the quality of jazz network in larkana is. Because here we are facing worst condition of 4G coverage internet speed and also voice issues alot of complaints have been submitted at PTA but a single step is not taken by PTA until.

  • Fake statement by failure PTA. None of them resolved such numerous complain even not least.i highly condemn on fake details 100%

  • This is true.because i have complained so many times.and my all problems has been resolved and i have made feed back upon it.
    PTA CMS is better way.
    This is good for customers because the cellular companies are harasing people

  • 100 times report and complaint filed but no response fastly and no any action illegal fraud loan application.

  • Oh, if by resolving, you mean,
    “that pta has checked the issue and All the KPIs of the serving cell site are healthy, service provider has done the maximum optimization, the coverage in the area has been analyzed and sufficient data & voice services are observed”
    Then yes it has resolved 100 percent of the complaints.
    But in reality we all know that they haven’t done anything, maybe 4 percent of complaints are properly resolved when is still not believable considering how the government works
