Islamabad (11 August 2023): With reference to recent misconceptions amongst the public and social media users regarding a new operator launching mobile services in Pakistan under the name "ONIC", Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) clarifies that no new operator has been awarded mobile cellular license to offer mobile services in Pakistan.
Pak. Telecom Mobile Limited (PTML) which already owns the “Ufone” brand intends to launch another new digital product “ONIC” to cater for digital segment of the market who prefer convenient digital engagement instead of traditional service delivery for high end users.
