Telcos Challenge Ban on Night Packages in High Court
The cellular phone operators have challenged the order of Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to stop all night call package in the Islamabad High Court (IHC), reported Daily Times.
Paper says that all operators jointly submitted a writ petition in Islamabad High Court, saying that there is no telecom law that regulate content on telephony services.
They said that cellular phone companies have offered many packages to customers, which could not be abandoned as many of them are useful to customers as against cited reasons of morality concerns.
Cellular phone companies can’t end all packages particularly those which are greatly in the use of customers for positive purposes, an official said. There is no such law in the country that imposes censorship on the conversation of two individuals or callers.
IHC has asked PTA to submit a response against the petition on November 26.
PTA recently issued orders to all cellular phone companies to end all night call packages and chat room services with immediate effect as these services are not suitable for social norms and considered immoral in our society.
