Mobilink passes one million 3G subscriber mark

23 Oct 2014

Mobilink has passed the one million 3G subscriber milestone just three months after inaugurating the service, which the cellco claims makes it the fastest growing 3G provider in Pakistan, Pro Pakistani writes. Mobilink was the last of the nation’s major cellcos to launch its 3G platform – excluding Warid Telecom, which did not compete for a 3G concession – activating its network in July 2014. Pakistan Telecommunication Mobile Ltd (PTML), which trades as Ufone, was the first to market the service in May, whilst Zong and Telenor launched their offerings the following month. Commenting on the company’s success, Mobilink’s chief commercial officer Bilal Munir Sheikh noted: ‘Our rollout plan is carefully designed to ensure that we provide the most robust 3G coverage in cities in which we are present. Our teams on [the] ground continue to work towards ensuring that we [are] providing the best customer experience in cities and locations before committing to new ones’.
