Three Illegal Gateway Exchanges Seized in Peshawar

Pin It ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has seized a network of illegal gateway exchanges at Peshawar,

which was causing a loss of billions of rupees to the national exchequer for the last three months.

According to a PTA announcement here on Tuesday, the telecom regulator and the Federal Investigation Agency’s National Response Centre (NRC) Peshawar launched a crackdown on the network of three illegal gateway exchanges and arrested one foreigner.

The raid was conducted based on the information obtained through the PTA traffic monitoring facility which detects grey traffic. It was found that the illegal facility consisted of three GSM gateways with 97 SIMs installed.

PTA Chairman Dr Mohammed Yaseen, appreciating the joint efforts of PTA and FIA teams, has given directives to PTA zonal directors to expedite action against such illegal activities by conducting raids throughout the country.
