    This is encouraging in Pakistan with foxy partners. @the GSMA2016 ZTE entered MOU with partners as China Mobile for trails on 5G. At this point when Netflix knocked our doors SmartTV coupled with content worldwide are important. With its outreach of IPTV and Smart TV could be a match for education on line for literacy, Virtual education, Utube education etc., which I just proposed to our Minister Ahsan Iqbal in his meeting with MIT researcher today.

      They are just interested in milking money for etisalat.

    does this mean ZTE phones in Pakistan ?

    • AbdulB1

      I prefer you not to buy them. I have 4 zte phones and their quality isn’t good as xiaomi or huawei. But if you are really interested in zte then Telenor 3g phone is made by zte.

        oh no … THATs the cheap stuff … more like the Nubia series … or maybe even the Blade versions , those are said to be nice.

    PTCL with traditional history of Etisalat deceptive marketing campaigns whereas the executant sales people are not even aware of the product existence. ZTE’s capability is unquestionable. But PTCL marketing know-how has left everything behind. Starting with handset, terminal equipment are the worst grade products purchased in lots of the obsolete/junk electronics lying in Taiwan for sale to the naive consmer of Pakistan. So please try to understand the customer is more smarter than PTCL because he’s paying you.
