Zong, the country’s main cellular service provider, has launched the 4G/LTE services in Pakistan.
Minister for IT and Telecommunication Anusha Rahman was the chief guest at the launching ceremony.
She said that with the advent of 4G service, an era of accelerated digitization has begun in Pakistan.
She said, her ministry detached itself after announcing the policy guideline for spectrum auction through MI (Memorandum of Information).
Unfortunately, she said, we could not have new entrant due to scarcity of time. Telcos also showed their keen interest and confidence in the auction process.
The minister said that today I am standing with the sense of satisfaction & contentment that my dream has become reality but journey of accelerated digitalization is still there.
The minister extended her heartiest felicitation to DR Fan Yunjun, CEO China Mobile, and his dedicated team for successful launching of first-ever 4G mobile service in Pakistan.
Dr Fan hailed the continuous support of the government, Ministry of IT & PTA in the successful launch of this advance technology. He acknowledged all who facilitated Zong throughout the entire process and reinforced that without the government’s positive vision this mobile internet revolution would have remained a distant dream.
Dr Fan Yunjun also shared congratulatory note to other telecos and stated that together as an industry,we can work continuously to redefine the local telecom sector. He paid special thanks to the minister and secretary for gracing the occasion.
