Federal Government on Wednesday gave approval to Rolling Spectrum Strategy for years 2020-2023 to provide high speed communication network.
This was the main objective of the spectrum master plan and the report was developed taking into account international best practices applicable to Pakistan, according to a press release published here on Wednesday.
The spectrum master plan provides the future roadmap for spectrum allocation as well as spectrum policy reviews that are expected to take place between 2020 and 2023.
The report helped the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MoIT & T), Pakistan’s Communications Authority (PTA) and the Frequency Assignment Board (FAB) formulate a three-year rolling spectrum strategy – a key area highlighted in the 2015 Communications Policy.
The deployment of the Spectrum roadmap helps commercial operators with their network planning investments. It is important to understand that industry change is happening quickly, and while the goal is to ensure transparency and certainty in the industry, the plan needs to be reviewed (every 3 years) to ensure that the plan remains up to date.
The report was prepared jointly by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Preferential Trade Organization and First Abu Dhabi Bank. The results of the World Radio Conference of the International Telecommunication Union (WRC-19) are also included in the report.
