    Wimax does not have a business case in pakistan.

    ARPUs are too low. Will not recover investment. That’s why Orascom stopped network expansion after the failure in karachi. Witribe’s failures continue.

    Hmmmm …. let’s see …. “Mustafa gained diverse experience in telecommunication, automotive, strategy consulting and offshore services for major global industry leaders such as Gateway, Ernst & Young, and General Motors, among others.” …. but did he ever deliver on P&L – Nope!

    He couldn’t help Infinity (Mobilink) and chances are that he will not contribute much to Wi-Tribe.

    We will have another CEO at Wi-Tribe this time next year.

    Honestly i have no idea what witribe is upto , the latest advancement is cutting down the salary of sales staff to 50% as witribe just realized they were paying a little too much (thats what they think) . One of the only company in the world which reduces the salary of staff as they spend more time . One more noticeable point is that cost cutting is only being applied to a single department while other departments are getting increments.
