Zong, Pakistani telecommunication network, wrote a letter to Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to raise the issue of unlawful and unfair license violations by Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) for its EVO and ChaarJi services.
According to details, Zong has explained that PTCL manages its wireless broadband services (EVO, ChaarJi) under WLL (Wireless Local Loop) license, according to which one cell site must not handover one device,phone to another cell site while on the go, regardless the content of the data.
According to letter written by Zong, “PTCL is therefore unlawfully encroaching upon the ambit of the cellular mobile operators (CMOs), and has managed to escape the responsibilities and liabilities attached to mobile telecommunication providers.”
Zong also requested PTA to follow the case in Sindh High Court, where PTCL has been given a stay on the matter, so that the merit can be revived.
