    • Even though a few people use 4G compared to 3G, but Ufone has become the only non-4G GSM / cellular network in Pakistan. They would be looking for a buyer soon. Pakistan does not have the capacity for more than three companies anyways. Warid was able to pull off some strings to launch 4G without extra license which made Mobilink “need” to buy them.
