Today in Pakistan we have every kind of gadget in the market whether its latest Iphone or Nexus. But we lack at the end of telecom sector services as we are still relying on EDGE connectivity which is very slow and a battery hog in reality.
There is a good news for the smart phones lovers that the 3G proposal submitted by 3G consultants has finally been approved by Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister of Pakistan. As per Ishaq Dar, the Finance Minister, government has decided to go with auction of three 3G and two 4G licenses by the end of April 2014.
