ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) Farooq Awan said Thursday that video sharing website Youtube would be opened in Pakistan in the next 15-20 days.
Awan added that talks were underway with Google the company which owns Youtube to block blasphemous content.
Youtube was banned in Pakistan in September following widespread outrage over the anti-Islam film.
The PTA chairman also said that from December 1, only five SIMs could be issued on an individual’s CNIC. SIMS would also be issued from the franchise of mobile company stores, Awan added.
