Roshan hits three million milestone

5 Feb 2009

Afghani cellco Telecom Development Company Afghanistan (known locally as Roshan), has announced that it has signed up its three millionth subscriber, reaffirming its position as the largest network operator in the country by users. In the last six months of 2008 Roshan added a million new active subscribers, which it claims is a result of its streamlined tariff structures, innovative services and expanded coverage; Roshan now reaches over 226 cities and towns across 33 of 34 provinces, covering 56% of the population. ‘Since its inception, Roshan has been committed to connecting the people of Afghanistan to each other and the world, which means providing choices that meet individual needs and aspirations,’ said Altaf Ladak, chief operating officer at Roshan. ‘The support and trust of Roshan customers has played a pivotal role in growing the Roshan family of subscribers to three million.’
