Pakistan’s leading 4G network Zong has announced to upgrade all sites to 4G by the end of this year, a significant development which implies that the number of 4G sites would touch a 10,600 mark by end of 2017.
“Zong will take the lead to connect Pakistan with the rest of the world. We will upgrade all our sites to 4G by the end of 2017. We have developed the most innovative and brand new customer service centres throughout Pakistan. Every person in Pakistan is our customer, whether he is on the Zong network or not. That’s the way we operate and we firmly believe that sooner or later, people who are not on our network, will join us due to our product quality and best customer services,” said Maham Dard, official spokesperson for Zong.
It is pertinent to mention that Zong was the first 3G and 4G network in Pakistan and currently leads the 4G market, with over 3.3 million 4G subscribers and an impressive 75 percent market share. With over $ 2.5 billion investment to date and widest 4G network in more than 300 cities, Zong has the second highest number of 3G and 4G customers.
“Zong is here to make more investment in the Pakistani people, to provide Pakistan with a faster and better connection to the world, so it can compete with other nations. We are investing in Pakistan because of its strong friendship with the government of China and the relationship China has with the Pakistani people. Our business model is completely different to that of other operators, we are not just doing business we are providing a platform to Pakistanis for them to advance in all sectors of their life,” said Maham Dard, spokesperson of Zong.
On Zong’s role as connectivity partner in the Pak-China Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, the spokesman said, “Zong will play a key role in connecting the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.”
