  • Oh warid is losing out badly.and telenor ,zong becoming market leaders.we are rate concsious not quality

    • Warid have same revenue as like of telenor and largest postpaid in PK
      I doubdt that all operators are following same process of showing active sims.
      As I live in Lahore and we found our offical calls are max at warid and we are not using offical network Warid and this is happening since month not few days.

  • Admin please share, companies net profit, it will show real picture. Even warid is doing good, yar zong k 10 customer utna pay kerte houn ge jitna warid k 2 customer, So who’s better?

  • Please change the title of ‘cellular_subscribers_004.jpg’ to ‘October 2011’

  • Warid the great but too rates are so high in prepaid…ufone is reasonable and good but not great in network

  • Very much competitive, I am user of both Warid and Telenor and found that Warid is best and lot of call drops in Telenor.
    I called russia from Telenor @ 17.98/min
    And found warid is charging only 6.9/min

    I also called romania LL from Telenor @ 17.98/min
    Warid is offering 6.89/min

    Also call drop makes Telenor tooo expensive

  • Telenor network is no good and occasional congestion and Network busy and after ZTE it will be even worst. Wht Warid is lacking is lack of good prepaid package and no proper media advertisement. Warid should invest in media and hire some motivated professionals in marketing dept.

  • I am really big fan and old customer of warid infact I have ajust used warid and it really hurts after seeing there graph going down which such high rate, warid should introduce new prepaid pakages and revise there tariff no othere network has such good quality as warid!

  • Warid has less customers,however all are “satisfied customer”.I have used Telenor Djuice and Ufone and it was pathetic service with high call drop rate and delayed SMS delivery. Warid voice quality is crystal clear, i never faced any signal drop issue etc issues. Ufone/Zong/Telenor can never compete Warid in “Quality service”.
    Warid GPRS experience is great too,didn’t use others GPRS.
