Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has clarified that ONIC Pakistan is not a new mobile operator entering the telecom industry.
In a Tweet, PTA stated, “With reference to recent misconceptions amongst the public & social media users regarding a new operator launching mobile services in Pakistan under the name “ONIC”, PTA clarifies that no new operator has been awarded mobile cellular license to offer mobile services in Pakistan.”
It added, “Pak. Telecom Mobile Limited (PTML), which already owns the “Ufone” brand intends to launch another new digital product “ONIC” to cater for digital segment of the market who prefer convenient engagement instead of traditional service delivery for high end users.”
PTA stated that it has been in active communication with PTML regarding their plans to launch “ONIC”. In line with the commitment to regulatory compliance and consumer protection, PTA has advised PTML to fulfill all necessary regulatory requirements.
