Telenor Upgrades its 1500 Cell Sites in 32 Cities to 3G

Telenor Pakistan, according to a tweet by Micheal Foley, CEO, Telenor Pakistan, has upgraded its 20 percent cell sites out of total 7500 total sites on the network to 3G.

Telenor, as we know already, has around 7500 cell sites on its network in Pakistan.

Company officials apparently celebrated the achievement with a cake cutting ceremony as seen in the tweet above. Cake, which mentions the number of cell cites that are 3G enabled now, also has names of the cities where Telenor claims to have its 3G footprint.

Micheal Foley emphasized in his tweet that this is just the beginning, hinting that Telenor is likely to get further aggressive for 3G roll-outs. Telenor, with major focus on rural areas, is likely to see severe competition from Ufone, Zong and Mobilink in major hubs.

It merits mentioning here that subscribers shouldn’t expect blanket 3G coverage in the cities where Telenor claims to have 3G its network.
