CEO Telenor Pakistan must verify above facts and give prize to the writer for pinpointing opportunity. Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) must take corrective action in favor of subscribers of Telenor and results must be evaluated at the grassroots level. PTA must direct telecom operators to communicate new services with subscribers through introductory calls once a month. Sajid Imtiaz: Chief Editor Daily 10 Minutes, Communications Expert CDKN
