WASHINGTON, August 4, 2010 – Dr. Muhammad Yaseen, chair of the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has announced that his group would be auctioning third-generation spectrum within three to four months. The policy framework has yet to be finalized, though the Daily Times reports that Naguibullah Malik, secretary of the Ministry of Information, believes most of the work to be already done.

“It is the right time for industry to go for 3G but it could not be done hastily, it takes time and a series of seminars being held in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi is the part of its awareness campaign among all stakeholders of the telecom industry,” Malik said, adding that only “certain administrative procedures” had yet to be completed in designing the process.
