    Wish k yeh sara paisa instead of norway pakistan mein he use ho.

  • Now they have gain lot of revenue so they should give some extra advantage to there consumer as well as the country.

  • kashif

    they’ll never do any good for us. The meanest company ever. Gaining profit by deception.

  • Kashif

    Customer ne tu kabhi khush nahi hona, chahay in ko free calls bhi offer ker do.

  • yasir latif

    yaar itni controversy kay baad bhi, telenor is on top interm of revenue and users. very strange:( ye tu awam theek nahi or statistics theek nahi?

  • Sumair

    itna revenue earn karne k baad bhi they wont introduce 3G!! :(

  • beera

    those of who are curious abt k telenor kahan profit spend kar raha hai… following is the answer:
    1) they are re-investing most of the reserves for easypaisa, they didnt buy tameer bank from donations!

    2)first celco to start khuddar pakistan campaign for physically challenged people, u can see many such people at their offices

    3) telenor was among highest donors during flood relief campaign

    4) which ceclo started campaign like karo mumkin show?

    5) telenor has one of the best CSR campaigns

    lots of other examples as well. so kindly, think before u write lame things, they are much better than our own UFONE.

    i think telenor is not able to introduce 3g at that time in pakistan bcoz LTE(4G) has been introduced in the world……

    • Shahid Saleem

      No one has real 4G deployed. A lot of places that say 4G r really WiMax.

  • Information Technology Jobs

    This is indeed a great news and Telenor is rightly on the track with a focus on customer satisfaction. Telenor has done remarkable job as a socially responsible company and Telenor Pakistan always came forward whenever some hard time can to people of Pakistan. Telenor Group and Telenor Pakistan employees generously donated for flood victims and also participated in volunteer efforts.
    Telenor has emerged as a company which doesn’t exist just for earning money, rather it’s striving for social uplift of the people of Pakistan.

  • faisal

    Very well said Beera ,

    A TIGHT SLAP ON KASHIF , YASIR ,SUMAIR .

    • yasir latif

      hahaha…. very funny u are man. come in the reality world. u are forgetting all type of controversies about telenor. or u dont want to see the real pic.

  • if you charge 0.23 to check credit in your sim, then you obviously will be making huge profit out of it
    TELENOR = FAIL

  • kashif

    telenor itself is a ___ against ppl like faisal. Pathetic voice quality n coverage. If they’v errected a tower in ur area, it doesnt mean that they’re done. ____ ppl use telenor n waste their money for them. European standard ____.

    telenor has invested over $2b in pakistan. to my knowledge not a single cent has been given back to the shareholders yet.

    it invests in its “pakistani” employees who get exported to international assignments and send back zareimubadla to pakistan.

    its “pakistani” franchisees are the most well respected and profitable in telecom trade.

    as for controversies… thanks to mobilink, zong and propakistani… koyee kissie key liye khush nahi hoe sakta
