Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has served a notice to Zong CMPak amounting to $29.5 million (approx. PKR 4.73 billion). The notice blames ZOng of unauthorized and illegal use of some radio frequencies. Zong CMPak in a reply has served PTA a notice claiming PKR 600 billion in compensation as a result of losses suffered by the company due to disturbed radio frequency band that it obtained from PTA.
Zong CMPak is of the view that the frequency band issued by PTA had many issues over the years which remain unresolved by PTA. This caused revenue losses due to poor quality of services and subsequent customer trust.
This also offered competitive advantage to other network operators who operated without any interferences.
