Pakistan decides to block BlackBerry Enterprise services

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has decided to block BlackBerry Enterprise Services throughout the country with effect from November 18.


The authorities decided to ban the services as they were not able to decrypt the communication carried out through BlackBerry Enterprise in Pakistan.

They said that the PTA has sent a letter to all the mobile phone operators in the country to put an end to the services.

However, the ban would not affect common consumers as the BlackBerry Enterprise services are essentially used by corporate organisations.
