Our bill payments empower customers to make utility bill payments anytime, anywhere through a reliable and secure channel. As the trusted cellular services provider for over 30 million Pakistanis, we feel that adding payment capabilities to our retailer network is a natural step in establishing Mobilink’s position in the mobile financial services arena," said Bilal Munir Sheikh, Vice President Marketing, Mobilink at the launch of the Utility Bill Payments Solution.
