Mobilink Announces 1 Million 3G Users on its Network

Mobilink today announced that it has achieved one million 3G users on its network. Announcement came with-in just three months of company’s commercial launch for 3G services.

Considering one million customers in just 90 days, Mobilink claims that it is currently the fasted growing 3G service in Pakistan. Mobilink’s 3G services for prepaid base were launched in July this year with 3G footprint in 12 cities of Pakistan.

Bilal Munir Sheikh, Chief Commercial Officer Mobilink commenting on the success said;

“Reaching the 1 million mark is only the beginning of a delightful journey for our customers and manifestation of our strategic approach towards building an ecosystem of high-speed internet in Pakistan.

Our roll-out plan is carefully designed to ensure that we provide the most robust 3G coverage in cities in which we are present. Our teams on-ground continue to work towards ensuring that that we providing the best customer experience in existing cities and locations before committing to new ones.

I thank our customers for putting their trust in Mobilink for their data and connectivity needs.”

Mobilink, in an exclusive interview with ProPakistani — which is scheduled for publication on Friday — said that it has over 1500 cell sites converted to 3G till date while more are being added on daily basis.

Mobilink’s recent introduction of 30GB data plans for 3G users, which are by-far more lucrative than anything that other operators have offered so far, is a hint that company plans to go aggressive with its 3G products.

Not to mention, Mobilink enjoys double the spectrum size for its 3G network (i.e. 10MHz) as compared to Telenor and Ufone.

    Waiting for the launch of 3g in Azad Kashmir… :'(

  • Geekpk

    10MHz spectrum is the key to good 3g/4g signals which only Zong and Mobilink have.

    • unfortunately still mobilnk 3g is a piece of shit, have bad experience, speed is fair enough but here problem is connectivity. in 3G package people mostly enjoy only 2G services that is actually a joke

    • umer

      please explain if you know the difference between 5MHz Spectrum and 10MHz Spectrum?

      • Shoaib

        It is simply bandwidth for transfer of data in each cell/BTS/Site.10 MHz Spectrum means more bandwidth for users in a particular cell/BTS/Site as compared to 5 MHz.

        I dunno why zong don’t cross 15mb across khi or hyd, although the coverage is great I move around hyd on 3G only mode XD

        • Naveed

          Lol 15Mbps is not enough :P ?

          • Zaki Uddin

            It’s more than enough, but if others getting better than that, why shouldn’t I ? XD

  • Bilal Aahil

    the are leading the Mobile market in Pakistan so it is expected of them to more. now im wondering how many of these one Million 3g users are daily active?

    • Sami

      Plz tell u from Telenor, Zong ot Ufone? I mean employee :p

      • Bilal Aahil

        None of those, I don’t work for any telco company.

  • Gibran Ashraf

    1m for mobilink and 1m for Zong (as claimed by them in an ad a few days ago). Of the 3.5m 3G/4G users – these two it seems have the lion’s share.

    • Shoaib

      3G/4G Competition is rising day by day among all cellular companies.It is expected that total 3G/4G users may cross 10 million in four to five months.More attractive packages of all companies will play pivotal role in this exponential growth.

  • Zaki Uddin

    I found zong’s coverage and speeds to be best, better than Mobilink, that’s why I had to port out to zong from Mobilink!

  • Miesam Jafry

    recently I traveled from Karachi to Sost (China Border), one of Pakistan to other end, I had 5 sims powered on all the time, Telenor and Zong’s data connection worked mostly, Mobilink even don’t have signals in some populated area and worst data connection speed (if available).
