Telecom sector on the up


This is with regards to the feature, “Telecom sector – anchoring Pakistan’s economy” published yesterday. I think we must applaud the work that the telecom industry has done to bolster the economy of Pakistan. The feature highlights invaluable data, and it is heartening to note that the sector is on a precipitous ascent as far as posting lucrative numbers are concerned. Another interesting thing I spotted was that Telenor is ranked at the second spot behind the long time leader Mobilink, as far as telecom companies in Pakistan are concerned. Kudos to the marketing team of Telenor that has worked wonders for the company, as it continues to ward off the challenge of Ufone, who is at the coattails of Telenor. However, with Zong’s collaboration with Manchester United, I feel that Zong’s numbers in the coming years are going to escalate! I have seen some crazy football fans in Pakistan, and none more so than the Red Devils. Take my word for it; with phones with dual and triple SIMS nowadays, there would be a time when most of our friends would own at least one Zong SIM.
