IS­LAM­ABAD— Chair­man Pak­istan Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion Au­thor­ity ( PTA) Dr. Syed Is­mail Shah said that PTA has been en­trusted with the re­spon­si­bil­ity to en­sure pro­vi­sion of high qual­ity tele­com ser­vices to the peo­ple of Pak­istan. He ex­pressed these views while at­tend­ing Zong’s cel­e­bra­tion for be­com­ing best per­former in al­most all voice and data ser­vice qual­ity el­e­ments amongst all Next Gen­er­a­tion Mo­bile Ser­vices ( NGMS) li­censees, a cake cut­ting cer­e­mony was or­ga­nized by Zong at Pak­istan Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion Au­thor­ity ( PTA) Head­quar­ters. Mem­ber ( Fi­nance) PTA, Tariq Sul­tan, Mem­ber ( Com­pli­ance & En­force­ment) PTA Ab­dul Sa­mad CEO Zong, Liu Dian­feng and his team were present.

He said that af­ter launch of 3G/ 4G ser­vices Pak­istan’s broad­band sub­scriber base has in­creased by leaps and bounds. Peo­ple from all walks of life are find­ing high speed in­ter­net to be es­sen­tial to­wards their re­spec­tive pro­gres­sion. There­fore, we en­sure that tele­com users get the ser­vices at bet­ter qual­ity stan­dards. Chair­man fur­ther said that now we are ready for more spec­trum auc­tion which is ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of June, 2016. It will fur­ther en­hance qual­ity of cel­lu­lar ser­vices in the coun­try. The ad­van­tage of avail­abil­ity of 3G/ 4G tech­nolo­gies is not just the avail­abil­ity of high speed in­ter­net, rather it is bring­ing in­for­ma­tion which leads to trans­parency and ef­fi­ciency. The tech­nol­ogy is paving way to build a bet­ter Pak­istan. I hope, Zong will con­tinue its ef­forts for the pro­vi­sion of high qual­ity ser­vices for tele­com users, the Chair­man said.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Liu Dian­Feng, CEO Zong said that it is an honor for us to be ranked as num­ber 1 in the net­work ser­vice qual­ity sur­vey con­ducted by PTA. Our cus­tomers are our top pri­or­ity. With in­creased in­vest­ment in our 4G, and up­dat­ing our 2G to 3G net­work, we hope to con­tinue to en­hance our net­work ser­vice qual­ity for our cus­tomers in the fu­ture. It is per­ti­nent to men­tion here that PTA has re­cently car­ried out a com­pre­hen­sive Qual­ity of Ser­vice ( QoS) Sur­vey of 2G and NGMS in Is­lam­abad, Rawalpindi and Pe­shawar to check voice and NGMS QoS as per the re­quired stan­dards.
