Ufone’s Province Wise Traffic and Revenues’ Details

Ufone has earned an average of Rs. 1.19 for each outgoing minute on its network during last six months, revealed a report exclusively made available by highly reliable source that wanted to remain unnamed.

We are giving selected details from the said report to give our readers an idea about outgoing traffic and total voice revenues of Ufone.

Province Wise Subscriber Share

As of December 2009, as per PTA’s quarterly report, Ufone had following number of subscribers in four provinces:

  • Punjab: 10,982,829
  • Sindh: 4,746,935
  • Khyber Pakhtoon Khawan: 2,071,866
  • Balochistan: 540,675

Voice Traffic:

In last six months, Punjab naturally contributed highest share of outgoing voice traffic, i.e. 54 percent followed by Sindh that shared 28 percent. Khyber Pakhtoon Khawan generated 13 percent of total voice traffic for Ufone with Balochistan standing last with 5 percent traffic share.

Voice Revenues

Following Graph Shows average revenue generated for one outgoing minute. It varies in different provinces because of different selection of tariff plans in different regions.

Note: Revenues’ details are for Voice traffic only. It does not include SMS, GPRS and other details.

As evident from last graph that Punjab and Sindh share lower ARPUs, that’s apparently because higher SMS usage and intelligent tariff plan selection (Reference: outgoing minutes/revenues/per minute revenues details)

We are trying to get hold of similar information for other operators as well. We will continue this series as we get required information.

      • nOna

        it’s neither wrong nor unethical, individual, personal privacy in another case… this is a public company, we’ve right to know whatever available :)

  • Sara

    Amazing data. So much is explained by these figures. Thanks ProPakistani and amazing job.

  • Aurangzeb

    ProPakistani has lost its ethics…. Why disclosing the details which are for business use to general users. I wonder what will happen if someone took photos of Administrator and his / her family with all persona details and publish online. (I am sorry I quotted this example but please show some respect for privacy and ethics). Running a popular site is a responsibility please consider this request positively.

      did you find any personal information in up-given stats? Did we ever cover any personal scandal? These are corporations, let’s not take them as individuals with personal lives.

      You may need to look at global standards to get acquaintance of what you have just seen.

      • Aurangzeb

        Admin, Then I thing there is no harm for you to share the resource who leaked the information.

        I am not an expert, but in US your site may had been sued for delibrately sabotaging a business and leaking information for unfair market business competiveness. E.g, Iphone 4 Review on Gizmodo

        Please don’t take it personally, This whole post you can re-write with abstract information w/o mentioning the stats. That is better news and it also take privacy of parties into consideration.

        ProPak provides very useful information and as a fan I was curious that it should be with the aim of betterment not to damage a repute of some person, institute or laws.

        Thanks for taking time and consideration of my request.

    • Alam

      Can you tell us, what is your profession?

      • Alam

        I’m speaking to Mr. Aurangzeb

          Computer Industry Software Engr…. Admin Why my above comment not yet approved.. and Alam had 2 approved comments :)

  • Aziz

    Aurehgzedb, grow up buddy. There is nothing unethical in publishing this data.

    I do not understand why are you mixing two altogetehr seperate issues. This is a company whose subscribers stats are given on a web site which hosts news about telecom/it and what is wrong in that.

    Please give some logical reasoning if you feel this is wrong. What is the rationale behind your logic.

      Appreciate your feedback, here is what i have to say

      – Sources remained unnamed on request
      – We got this information in textual form, which was converted into graphical form for easy and better understanding
      – And about publishing news which are unknown to external world – this is what media is all about, that’s why you come to this website or any other news website.

  • Aurangzeb

    Admin,

    Absolutely news like PTCL puts installation charges, Zong packages, new tariffs, hidden costs and other new stuff lot to know. There is nothing wrong in putting news like this as well..but it should permit the statistical data / revenue data of a business not to be publicly disclosed. Even mentioning Percentage breakdowns is good, but figures in Rs. is little beyound the line I guess.

    One more thing as you must be aware of that Govt. to sanction PTA an Internet Content Filtering Authority. Right now ICFA goals were about to be formed. If releasing business data which may hurt or create disclosure of Business Data w/o permission of the source company, Telco. Companies collaboratively can put formal request to ICFA to moderate / action against such sites.

    I just want site like ProPakistani to avoid to be in such situations.

  • expert

    I agree with Aurangzeb, Propakistan has also give a lot information of some personal issue in different companies which later sued in local pakistan court, i hope in future propakistani takecare companies internal information

  • tayyeb

    An end user need not be concerned about the revenues of the service provider.

    such data may not harm someone’s personal privacy but it does harm company interests.

  • Altaf

    @Aurangzeb,
    You are right. However, if the data is that confidential, the company should take measures to ensure that it’s not leaked.

    If the company and it’s employees can’t keep the secrecy of data, then other can’t be blamed for publishing it.

    Beside this, I personally think companies must disclose their detailed information to industry and people. However, in our society, sharing information is considered as it’ll harm them and will take away their competitive advantage. Which is just a lame excuse. Majority of the bigger companies give full disclosure and yet they are still ahead of many.

    • Muhammad Aurangzeb

      Altaf… Companies take many precautionary measures. But companies are operated by people. In large corporation there are many people involve in the hirarchy of decision making. Even sometimes a remorse or some hidden agenda like screwing a coworker is behind leaking the information. e.g U and Me work in same company may be different departments and somehow we were not getting along.

      I may leak something which was primarily your job related to present u as bad. Or may be someone promise me to provide some Juicy Data and in return a gift like mobile phone will be mine :). So you will find individuals like this everywhere. Regarding sharing data, There is monthly or quarterly report regarding how these telecom companies are doing is been published by PTA and usually find its links in ProPakistani. There is no harm in that data.

      Right now the competition for telco. companies is fierce in Pakistan. Data revealing cost / profit ratios and revenues information. Other telco. companies may use this data as comparison and kills the competition as they now have internal knowledge how there competitor is performing and how reduce call rates they can offer or any other strategical decision.

    Disclosing funds and revenue or stats of any company without its permission otherwise stated by Govt. authorities for public interest are illegal and ProPakistani should take measures to seek permission first before going public. This is actually a typical immature style of Pakistani media
