Analysts said the performance of the PTCL group improved due to stability in the business of its subsidiary, Ufone, which generated handsome cash flows due to increase of use in data services on its network.

Its cellular phone company is witnessing a better situation despite competition due to taxation relief by provincial government of Punjab last year which impacted positively on its revenue streams.

Besides, PTCL’s broadband businesses has been stable throughout the year including its DSL and EvDO services. Smart Tv has been its emerging sector whereas its revenues from LDI sector witnessed improvement as well.

PTCL has lately started to bank more on its corporate service which has been an emerging sector with landline voice services.

    The overall revenue is down by 8.7% as a group with essentially the same cost structure. Ufone is down 11.5%. Both PTCL and Ufone are shrinking in revenues with the same cost structure. Business for both is not growing. Alarming

    They fake the growth just to keep etisalat interested. They fake their daily, weekly, but monthly, yearly targets. The KPIs are faked.

  • Muhammad Tauseef

    So much for an analysis: PTCL own profit, 8.7 Billion, whereas PTCL group profit 1.8 billion, clearly indicates PTML-Ufone is in losses………

  • Samna Chaudhary

    They should get 4G License in order to stay in the competition.

  • Ahmad Wahid

    Their revenue is increasing yet we are getting degraded services which are still degrading day-by-day. Hope they can improve their services!
