    Every quarter/yearly they are increasing earning revenue so i would like to ask one question then why they are more charging taxes or additional charges.

  • Karachiite

    Mobilink like Telenor continues to deceive its users by increasing charges on “karachi unlimited” package(11pmto6pm- 19 hours) without properly informing users via sms about increase in package rates. So naturally by deceiving it continues to post good financial results..

  • Telco

    Dear Saeed/Karachiite
    The Taxes / Additional charges are not in hands of cellular companies either its Mobilink/Telenor or anyone else. These charges are fixed by Govt./FBR and adding revenues to Govt funds and not cellulars.

    An EBIDTA of 41% is quite high for a competitive market. Mobilink/orascom continues to rip off its customers by over billing them. By the way, 34 million are not active subscribers. These days, most mobile users have at least 2 SIMs. Hence, active subscribers would be between 17-20 million.
