ISLAMABAD: This is apropos the story “How much for a 3G connection?” (March 24). While overall Pakistani cell phone subscribers might number in tens of millions, their usage and requirement for 3G services is certainly debatable. Perhaps, about 10 per cent of total subscribers may require 3G services, and that is being extremely generous.
However, I would still want to question the government’s decision to upgrade to 3G technology when the world is moving towards LTE technology. It might have been a good idea to skip one technology version and go straight to the latest.
