Vision, Quality Service, Superior Services etc. all those things which should be hallmarks of a regulatory authority are sadly not what defines PTA, but what does define it is sheer incompetence. We never had any high hopes from PTA to begin with, but their latest blunder should actually make them feel ashamed. PTA suspended the license of Paknet for a month, citing "Unpaid Fees". Yes demanding license fees from a non existing company, how stupid can they get.
Read the whole story below:
Just in case if you don’t know, annual license fee for ISPs is paid on company’s Gross Revenues of a complete and audited financial year. Now, if a company was closed in 2007, how come they gonna pay their license fee against Zero revenues?
The most exciting part is that PTA amused the industry by sending enforcement letter to all ISPs, LDIs, LLOs and CMOs to freeze all services to Paknet :-)
