Zong, the infamous mobile network in Pakistan is suing PTA (Pakistan’s Telecommunications Authority) for illegal and unauthorized use of frequencies.
Zong had been granted permission by the FAB (Frequency Allocation Board) to use additional radio frequencies; an interference in areas of the Pakistan-India border. For a period of one year, Zong was granted the 1800 MHz range, which was later extended several times to 2019.
Zong exceeded the limit of this time, making it illegal to use these frequencies in that time to which the PTA fined US 29.5 million and to stop the use of these frequencies
In return, Zong slapped PTA with a notice claiming 600 billion Pkr, which the company faced because of a radio frequency band that they got from the PTA.
Zong claimed that this radio frequency band issue had remained unresolved for many years causing a loss of revenue.
Zong not only lost revenue but also their customers, as well as their reputation, took a hit too.
