ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) continues its relentless efforts to eradicate deep-rooted mushroom growth of illegal provision of internet services.

In coordination with the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), the PTA successfully conducted three raids in Samundari, Khiderwala and Mureedwala.


The raids against illegal internet service providers (ISPs) were conducted at Gojra Road, Samundari; main bus stop, Khiderwala and Mureedwala.

Two persons were arrested and several equipment of illegal ISPs was confiscated.

During the raid, one illegal wireless point to point (P2P) link/antenna was also confiscated.

The PTA said that the successful raids against ISPs were made possible because of continuous monitoring, commitment & persistent efforts by the PTA in curbing the menace of illegal internet services, thus curtailing the loss to national exchequer in terms of tax evasion and misreporting of revenues.

It said that the public is once again cautioned to avail telecom services from only the PTA licensed operators to avoid sudden discontinuation of service.
