Here goes our First Letter:

Telenor’s Identity Crisis

Now Brand’s power has always been a derivative of from the goodwill and name recognition it has earned over time. It is established only after a company has outsmarted its rivals due to competitive rates and quality of service. It translates into higher sales volume and higher profit margins against rival products.

I fail to understand as to why Telenor is still in search of brand equity even Six years after its emergence on Pakistani scene. Is the ship drowning? Why the company is so under-confident? Thematic campaigns are meant for initial years only and once a company ‘settles down’ it starts calling the shots merely on its name only. Its like a drowning government whose ministers yell at others and say,” hold your horses, we are not going anywhere” and one fine morning we find them behind the bars/It is ironical that Telenor still could not secure its brand and create direct link with its customers.

Earlier the company came under fire for showing bravado of a Young-man who tries to make amorous advances to the girl of her choice. The company cut a sorry figure and had to stop running the ad.

  • Ms. Bukhari seems to be quiet accurate in her comments. According to my personal observations, “Telenor Farigh Hai”. They need to redefine themselves first.

  • It is really good now readers may express themselves and new ideas may come up when someone shares what he thinks. Propakistani.pk has done good job to facilitate its Regular Readers

  • Dear all,
    I hope you don’t know that Ufone is semi government and is just like a vagabond. Ufone stole data of 150 connections of different network and ported in them into their network. Most of the numbers belong to Telenor but nothing happened.

    Furthermore Ufone has some problem in porting out its users to other network and this problem has not been solved after even 90 days and still they are not giving any dead line that when they will actually resolve the problem.

    Keeping this all in view other mobile companies are thinking of different things that can not be published on a public forum because I don’t want to put my self in any kind of problem. In the past Telenor won “Best Place to Work Award” in 2010 but what happened that suddenly its top higher management resigned with even a formal email.

    To conclude this I must say that our government has been failed to implement policies rather they are working on the policy of “looto aur phootoo”. Do any body tell me what is 10+tax on balance checking?
    Yes we all know but no one can do nothing…

    Best of luck Pakistan and is innocent stupid public. Including me.
