Illegal Gateway Exchange Seized in Lahore

Islamabad: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) jointly conducted successful raid at Model Town Lahore involved in termination of grey international calls. Six VoIP-GSM Gateways and a location in thousands of Mobile SIMs along with other supportive hardware were seized during the raid. This action is expected to save millions of dollar revenue which is otherwise lost due to operation of such grey exchanges.

It may be mentioned that, this action was a result of continuous efforts of highly technical professionals and dedicated workers of PTA who check and monitor the illegal call termination activities and adopt different procedures and processes to track the illegal telecom gateways.
