The directives issued by the authority recently stated hat white list would be the list of IP addresses maintained of service providers for the purpose of allowing them for using VoIP services.

The list will be maintained by the Vigilance Directorate of PTA and will contain the IPs reported by PTA licensed operators authorized by the government of Pakistan.

 As per current rules, regulations, government policies and the VoIP clarification issued by PTA, any IP address would be included in the white list which fulfills different criteria and terms of engagements under regulations and formats.
