    I really doubt about something. How witribe could be number 2 broadband service provider and largest Wimax operator?? Is its network in 23 cities???

    A nice way to tell Peracha that you are fired! witribe is not going anywhere because the business case for wimax in Pakistan is very weak. You cannot recover an investment of $200 million (rs. 20 billion) and become profitable by selling internet connections for 750 rupees or so.
