  • Eager to see zong crossing ufone.
    Feel pity for Warid
    I doubt on Telenor stats (Sab gol maal hai bhai sab gool maal hai)

  • ARPU is the real thing and not the subscriber base !! Warid posted better financial results compared to ZONG , just due to their higher ARPU!!

  • zong is the best really welldone bcoz only 5 years n pakistan but c the result, i appreciate zong

  • Fake stats of zong and telenor
    In my area from gujrat …. People who used to be fan of telenor are not even looking at them cause of poor quality and warid has been the replacemment for telenor so hwz it possible when people are actually leaving telenor and joing other networks?

    • sorry to say dear but zong is the leading network in the country and i agree with you that telenor is worst network in country… and i also agree with you that warid is the best above all…..

  • Any idea about “Active Connections” and “Subscribers”? There are people with multiple SIMS, should they counted as multiple subscribers?

    • yes active subscribers mean people using connections or are online(active). . Subscribers means how many connections are bought but may or may not be active

  • Sad to see that my favourite networks Mobilink and Ufone are not growing :(
