TeleCON 2011 ends on high note

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s premier annual telecom and IT event, the fourth Pakistan Telecommunication Conference 2011 (TeleCON) concluded here on Tuesday. The participants of the conference recommended that it was time for Pakistan to deploy economically sustainable technologies to enhance communication and trigger robust economic growth.
It was jointly organised by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and the Pakistan Software Houses Association (PASHA). PTA Chairman Muhammad Yaseen, in his keynote address stressed, “Broadband is considered the next big thing to offer a unifying services platform for three converging industrial sectors: computing, communications and broadcasting.
He noted that encouraging developments were occurring in this sector since 2007 and Pakistan has emerged as a lucrative market for broadband service providers owing to the huge potential it offers especially in the wireless broadband market. “We observed a profound evolution of broadband technologies over the years with the present subscription base reaching 1.2 million from 0.1 million in 2007,” he added.
