Aimed at further expanding and developing its already market-leading, innovative data packages via the 3G platform, Telenor Pakistan has announced to commercially launch 3G services in Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Islamabad on June 1, 2014.
The second phase of commercial roll out will be initiated later this year to offer 3G services in other parts of the country as well.
“We are excited to introduce 3G services to our customers, expanding access to data-rich products and coverage solutions to meet their needs,” said Irfan Wahab Khan, Chief Marketing Officer, Telenor Pakistan.
“The launch of next generation services in the country marks the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Pakistan.
As the country is getting ready for the data centric era, we reiterate our commitment to help the nation forge ahead by providing internet for all.
Not only does this technology ensure expansion in Telenor Pakistan’s robust and high-performing data services, but it also complements our existing state-of-the-art network that currently offers one of the widest, most reliable coverage across the country.
We also aim to play a pivotal role in government’s efforts to promote e-inclusivity for all to foster socio-economic transformation of Pakistan, and with the 3G platform, we can further extend our support for making ICT more accessible across the country.”
The current free trial of 3G services to Telenor Pakistan’s customers will continue until May 31, 2014, and the users will be charged for the 3G service from June 1, 2014 onwards. The subscribers will be notified about the end of free 3G trial service via SMS, Telenor Pakistan’s official website, company’s Facebook page and outdoor advertising campaigns.
