PTA launches website for mobile users

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has launched its Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) site which would allow mobile phone users to access the official website of PTA through their mobile phones.

With this initiative, the PTA has become the first public sector organisation to have English, Urdu and the Mobile versions of its website.

According to a PTA statement issued on Friday, mobile users can now access PTAís website through http://wap.pta.gov.pk. In this regard, the available information of PTAís standard website has been transformed into simple text-based content to lower down the bandwidth requirements of a mobile consumer.

It may be noted that recently the PTA also launched the Urdu version of its website to facilitate a large segment of the population having less familiarity with English contents. The mobile edition (m-edition) would enable telecom consumers to access the available information regarding PTA activities, decisions, policies and even lodge complaints through their mobile handsets.

With reference to this development Chairman PTA, Dr Mohammed Yaseen said that in its endeavors for the development of ICTs in Pakistan, the PTA had taken number of initiatives to launch and promote new innovative solutions for the betterment of the telecom industry and the society.
