ISLAMABAD ( BMZ REPORT )
The Ministry of IT & Telecom received great accolades for the 3G & 4G auction completed last year, and this year too has started on a high note. Ms.Anusha Rehman was awarded the “Government Mobile Excellence Awards 2015” at the Mobile World Congress 2015 of the GSMA in Barcelona, Spain. This award is an acknowledgement of the successful spectrum auction of the 3G & 4G services in the 850 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz bands. It is a great achievement particularly given that the last time Pakistan received an award from the GSMA was back in February 2006.
Being the only 3G + 4G operator in the country, Zong recognizes this as a remarkable achievement for the country as it is progressing towards greater heights in the mobile spectrum world. Speaking at the occasion, Mr Nauman Khalid, Deputy Director Regulatory Affairs Zong, said “We would like to congratulate Ms.Anusha Rehman & Dr. Ismail Shah on this great achievement, acknowledgements such as these are a welcome news for the country as it has just stepped on the trajectory of mobile broadband. It is also very encouraging for Zong as well as the entire telecom industry for being at the forefront with regards to 3G & 4G technology”. He furthermore asserted how the government can be assured of Zong’s support in the future. “We have always extended utmost support to MoIT in all its efforts, and will continue to do so in the future”.
He further added “Zong has been working closely with GSMA and has supported their presence in Pakistan. GSMA has a major role to play, to help the local telecom industry create further inroads and strengthen Pakistan as a major player in the global telecom industry.”
Achievements such as these are an indicator of the potential that this country possesses in the domain of technology and telecommunication. In this regard, Zong will continue to strive towards excellence in cooperation with the government to enable Pakistan to touch bigger and greater heights in the future.
