    ARPU is the real game

  • Sam

    Zong has already crossed Ufone last month and they celebrated it with vigour!

  • Shehryar Khan

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

  • Guest

    • Osama

      Agreed…

  • Adlo

    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?

    • Osama

      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…..

  • Ahmed

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

    • kiku

      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

  • Mustafa

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