Further to a damning report on BBC TV's Watchdog programme in October this year, comes the results of a UK Oftel Customer Satisfaction Report.

The UK's Guardian newspaper reported " Fledgling mobile phone network 3 was dealt another blow yesterday as official figures showed that Oftel, the telecoms watchdog, received 14 times more complaints about its service over the last six months than about any of its competitors.

The figures also showed that Orange, which in the past has prided itself on being the UK's best network, lost its top position to Vodafone. Oftel received 0.2 complaints per 1,000 customers about O2, Orange and T-Mobile and only 0.1 complaint per 1,000 about Vodafone".

The Oftel report figures were based on UK mobile company's complaints per 1,000 customers ( business and residential combined ) for the last six months. This related to complaints for all services accessed from a mobile telephone.

Oftel received 552 complaints about Hutchison 3G ("3 UK"), but Oftel were unable to obtain customer base information from 3.

The likelihood of 3 UK reaching its predicted 1 million subscribers by the end of 2003 looks impossible. In August 2003, 3 reported a 3G subscriber base of 155,000 in the UK. That meant they would need to sign up an additional 845,000 subscribers by the end of 2003.

However, in August 2003, that target seemed feasible with retailers like the Car Phone Warehouse signing up 5,000 new subscribers a week - as heavily discounted voice call tariffs were released by 3.

Apple and AT&T are facing another lawsuit over the iPhone 3G.

This time, William Gillis of San Diego is suing the two companies, claiming that they "have misrepresented the speed, strength, and performance of the 3G bandwidth network," according to freelance journalist Justin McLachlan. Apple has acknowledged the complaints over the iPhone 3G's reception and has promised to fix the issues via a software update.

Apple was sued in August over the iPhone 3G by an Alabama woman who claimed that the company deceived consumers by promising that the iPhone 3G would be "twice as fast" as the original iPhone.

Why Pakistanis S.Ps did not provide 3G ?

Secretary IT and Telecom
Naguibullah Malik on Monday
said Pakistan Telecommunication
Authority (PTA) would shortly
introduce a policy framework on
the 3G mobile technology.
Speaking as a chief guest at a
seminar – “Demand for 3G and
beyond”, jointly organised by the
PTA and HUWAEI, he said the
PTA has so far completed most of
the work regarding the policy.
He said license for the 3G
technology would shortly be
issued to the mobile operators, as
a couple of companies have
agreed to take part in the auction
process regarding the acquisition
of technology. He said the
country ’s telecom sector has
witnessed an unprecedented
growth since the deregulation of
the industry. He pointed out that
tele density rate was at 63
percent presently and hoped the
industry was likely to surpass 100
million mobile subscription target
in the coming years.
Naguibullah said the broadband
growth in the country has
witnessed a growth of 150
percent in the last two years.
Secretary IT said Pakistan had
been placed on the sixth position
in terms of quarterly growth and
10th in terms of annual growth in
the global broadband market.
Chairman PTA Muhammad Yasin
pointed out that country ’s
broadband sector had grown
from 45,000 users in 2007 to
900,000 users this year.
