Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has refuted the rumours circulating on social media regarding discontinuation of Telenor services in Pakistan.
“Any such news or advertisement is fake. It is once again reiterated that all cellular mobile operators, including Telenor, will continue to provide services to its consumers as usual,” PTA said in a statement on Wednesday. “PTA has referred the matter to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for further investigations and to initiate criminal proceedings against those spreading fake news involving PTA.”
The authority requested the public not to circulate such fake news since it causes confusion and inconvenience for telecom users.
