Ufone recently was in the news for starting its 4G service years after other three telecom operators in Pakistan rolled out their 4G/LTE mobile service in Pakistan.

But recently, the Senate Standing Committee on IT and Telecommunication took notice of the least area covered by the fourth largest operator in Pakistan in the Malakand District.

Senator Fida Hussain informed the committee that there were three mobile service providers in the area including Ufone, Zong, and Telenor. While Zong and Telenor have 90% and 70% area covered Ufone only provide mobile service to 17% area in the district.

According to the terms of the GSM license, the telecom operators are obligated to spread their services to all the areas, but an official of the Ministry of IT and Telecom pointed out that the practice is in contrast to the terms of the license. Companies only tend to activate their services in commercially viable areas only.

The committee took strong notice of the Ufone’s practice and directed the Ministry of IT and Telecom to provide the details of all the unserved areas in Pakistan in order to pursue telecom operators to offer their services in all the areas where population exists.
