Mobilink claims to have become first Pakistani Telco to expand its 3G network to over 200 cities in the country. Mobilink said that it sped up its 3G network expansion by adding 178 cities, to the existing 31, in the first half of 2015 alone.
Already the largest 3G network in Pakistan — in terms of subscribers and network stretch — Mobilink ensured its rapid 3G expansion was not hampering performance by certifying optimal performance in each area before moving on to the next.
Coinciding with Mobilink’s vision to bridge the digital divide prevalent in the country, this milestone has been achieved in just over a year since the commercial launch of high speed mobile internet in Pakistan. During the course of 2015, Mobilink has expanded its 3G network across the country by providing comprehensive coverage in metros, smaller cities, and towns across the four provinces.
In order to encourage the use of 3G and increase awareness in these newly connected areas, Mobilink also offers its subscribers free 3G for a limited period of time, which has been appreciated by people from all walks of life.
“Mobilink is playing a leading role in expanding the high speed broadband infrastructure in Pakistan. Being the first operator to launch 3G in more than 200 cities strengthens our position as the largest 3G network and also proves Mobilink’s commitment in bridging the digital divide by making a technologically advanced Pakistan,” said Aamir Ibrahim, CCO & Deputy CEO Mobilink.
Further elaborating on the benefits to the public of a strong 3G presence, and the change in local trends, he stated, “3G broadband facilitates access to knowledge and is a key factor that positively impacts the social-economic canvas in the country. While call and text performance are important aspects of mobile communications, people are now relying more on the internet to for their productivity and entertainment needs. Mobilink remains committed to providing the benefits of a solid high-speed internet connection to every Pakistani, in every nook and corner of the country.”
To support its 3G services, Mobilink has in place a fiber optic infrastructure that expands to over 8000 kilometers coupled with the latest technology, state-of-the-art equipment and a well versed team of professionals.
Mobilink’s 3G network connects millions of people who use the Telco’s superior internet speeds and affordable data packages for education, businesses, communication, entertainment, and e-learning purposes.
