Few takers for post-paid connection in Pakistan
Islamabad: Less than five percent Pakistanis have post-paid mobile phone connections, while the rest - about 96 to 97 percent - have pre-paid connection, a media report said.

Dawn reported that about 96 to 97 percent of 120 million cellphone subscribers have pre-paid connections.

Telecom operators expressed concern over the interior minister's plan to do away with the pre-paid mobile phone service and are now persuading the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority not to succumb to the ministry's pressure.

"Post-paid connection is very expensive particularly for the poor segment of society. A security fee is required to get such a connection. Besides it carries no free call and SMS package offers. The subscriber cannot use more than the amount he deposits as security," an official of a telecom operator was quoted as saying.
