PTA begins process for AJK, GB spectrum auction

5 Oct 2020

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has issued a request for expressions of interest (EoIs) for consultancy services regarding the renewal of licences and allocation of additional spectrum concessions in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) regions. The eventual winning bidder would be required to assess the available and assigned spectrum in the 900MHz, 1800MHz, and 2100MHz bands in the two territories and develop policy recommendations for the licence renewals and to help design and plan the auction of the available spectrum. The publication follows on the heels of a similar request for the assistance with an upcoming sale of 1800MHz and 2100MHz frequencies for the rest of Pakistan.
