The PAS was formed to promote the value of advertising and to ensure that the recipients realize the importance advertising has in economic development and to spread how imperative it is for the consumer to have options to choose from.

Over the last few years advertisers have taken a number of steps in order to stand out in the hope that consumers will choose their brands over those being offered by competition, but one brand that has stood out no matter what industry is ‘Ufone’.

Ufone has given humor as a platform a whole new meaning, the unique yet highly amusing advertising with concepts never before seen have taken over the hearts of the nation. It is due to the element of excitement and humor that today Ufone’s ads are loved by all no matter where they reside around the country.

Most importantly a number of these adverts are true to life hence viewers can relate to instances in their own lives.

The team of actors/comedians in their advertising have each become household names which has played an important role in the likeability towards the brand itself.

Mr. Akbar Khan Chief Marketing Officer Ufone said that this is indeed a milestone for Ufone. Pakistan is a country with a growing and diverse advertising sector and we get to experience a number of challenging and unique advertising practices on a daily basis. The team at Ufone strives to be the best at what we do and this award is recognition of our hard work. Ufone always has and always will bring a smile to the people of Pakistan.

    Love this Ad!

  • muhammad kaleem

    Ufone rocks. Indeed only ufone ads are the best and the endings are superb..

  • Farhan

    from Marketing Perspective ….An award winning ad does not mean …. more customers …….. and thats why ufone’s market-share this year has been the lowest.

    The main focus of a company should have been on improving the user experience, increase the competency of their customer services, and rectifying the issues in their networks…. rather then just spending on winning awards for ads…..!!

  • Tanveer

    Well Deserving awesome advertising team !!!

  • Naveed

    Ufone is the best!

  • anon

    with the amount of advertising they do, it’s no wonder they bagged a win. It’s the salesman approach. Knock on 100 doors, one’s bound to respond.

  • Asif

    Worst ever company, Aamir didn’t mention once in his post which company was found over-charging their customers by PTA. It must be ufone, I have an extra SIM and I use Warid as my regular number. But whenever I recharge Ufone, it immediately drops to Rs.20. Their helpline says “Asif sab ap ny koi VAS services activate ke hongi na” but they were unable to tell me which services I subscribed to.

  • IRFAN ZAFAR

    Not in customers, just popular in media “The Ufone”

  • AA

    Warid ads are worst…
    Warid doesn’t even advertises that much…

    But still they got best phone network service :)
    Talk about using the expanses & Budget in right direction.
    Yes go warid go :)
