3G Data Sites Upgraded to 4G in South Waziristan

(Islamabad: 19 February 2021): Data Services of Cellular Mobile Operators (CMOs) were restored in South Waziristan after visit of Prime Minister' visit on 20th January 2021. Subsequently, PTA carried out a Quality of Service (QoS) survey in South Waziristan, in order to check the on-ground status of telecom services.

CMOs were asked not only to improve the services but also to upgrade their 3G data sites. Accordingly, Jazz which was providing 3G data services in South Waziristan, has upgraded all of its 3G sites to 4G. This step will allow subscribers to enjoy high speed data services.

PTA is continuously following up with CMOs to install more sites in the area so that better voice and data services can be extended to the subscribers in line with the vision of the PM of Pakistan.
