G3? Base Price is Low? It’s 3G and the Base Price is Not Low!


If you thought that booking MNP misuse under terrorism act was enough of stupity from Senator Rehman you haven’t seen what brains we have in the opposition.

Senator Pervez Rasheed of PML(N) who questioned the upcoming 3G and plus License Auctions process and most importantly the base price shared his views recently in Geo TVs talkshow Capital Talk hosted by Hamid Mir.

But guess what did they discuss about? G3; Yes, during the course of discussion on the matter the Senator and Talkshow host both kept talking about  G2, G3 and G4 proving absolute lack of knowledge for the technology.

Moreover, as far as the question on base price of the licenses is concerned we discussed this Mr. Parvez Iftikhar, telecom expert and former CEO of USF. Sharing his views, let’s make it clear that the 3G base price is NOT lower than 2G base price.

Reason being that the standard and fair measure to compute the base price is ‘per-megaherts-per-year‘. Thus 3G being auctioned as a 10Mhz band license and not 13.xMhz band (2G), the base price comes to the same.

Anyone with little telecom knowledge can figure this out, but we surely can’t expect this from our politicians.

    LoL, how conveniently both the media and politicians are fooling the world with little or no information. Just goes on to show that they must be doing the same on other issues they highlight as well.
