PTA: No decision to unblock YouTube

Monday, December 03, 2012
YouTube was restored in Pakistan by some ISP's as per news appeared on GEO News, Dunya TV and some other channels, they even sent messages to their subscribers for the sake of breaking news that PTA has lifted ban on YouTube even without verification.

Update: There has been no decision to unblock YouTube nor was it officially opened according to the Director General of Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) Farooq Awan.

PTA Chairman Mr. Awan said they would investigate those Internet Service Providers (ISPs) who opened the video sharing website in some cities of Pakistan on Monday.

The DG PTA added that action would be taken against the ISPs which opened YouTube and their licenses’ could be suspended.

It merits mentioning here that news channels like GEO News are much concerned about the breaking for more and more traffic and they rarely consider the conditions where public gets confused whether it be national matters or matters related to Telecom.
