Lahore—The Federal Minister for Information Technology Sardar Aseff Ahmed Ali has said the introduction of 3G networks, devices and services in countries around the world is enhancing quality of life and providing expanded economic opportunities, both in the public and private sectors. He was addressing a seminar with reference to 3G Mobile Services under the theme of “To be or not to be is not the question: 3G is coming”. The seminar was organized by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) in collaboration with (Zhongxing Telecom) ZTE Corporation.
