Gwadar now powered with best-in-class 4G services

 In yet another landmark development, Telenor Pakistan has powered Gwadar city, historically an old fishing village that is now poised to become one of the world’s most thriving seaports, with its best-in-class 4G services. Due to the unavailability of long-haul fiber optic to carry traffic in the region, Telenor Pakistan has usedstate-of-the-art satellite solution to deliver 4G services to Gwadar. Subsequently, Telenor Pakistan users can now enjoy high speed data services at par with key metropolises like Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad.

Owing to its important strategic location and ongoing CPEC related developments with immense economic and geo-political potential, Gwadar is all set to emerge as a regional and global maritime hub. With thousands of Pakistani and foreign professionals working day and night on diversified development projects, Telenor Pakistan’s 4G services will not only help in their professional communications but will also keep them connected to their loved ones back home.  At the same time, Telenor has upgraded all Gwadar sites to 3G as well, so that more people can access high speed internet even with their existing smartphones.

“Upgrading Gwadar city from 2G directly to 3G/4G was an interesting challenge,” said Bilal Kazmi, Chief Marketing Officer, Telenor Pakistan. “There was no fiber optic infrastructure available in the city, but our eagerness to bring mobile broadband to the residents of Gwadar propelled us to make alternative solutions available and the satellite solution presented a potential option. We had already used the model in 2015 to test 3G services in Gilgit Baltistan with promising results. We are pleased and excited to play an active role in the socioeconomic progress of Gwadar city and hope that our services will strengthen professional as well as personal communications for all involved in the city’s development.”

The move comes as part of Telenor Pakistan’s efforts towardsconnecting its customers to what matters most to them and its mission of empowering the Pakistani society. Ever since it started operations in Pakistan, Telenor has explored innovative ways to bring communications and digital services to the remote, unserved, and underserved areas and communities of Pakistan with an aim of bringing them into the folds of digital and financial inclusion. Telenor has emerged as the country’s primary digital lifestyle partner and is continuing to lead the ICT-powered digital transformation in the country, supporting the government of Pakistan in its pursuit of short and long-term digital and financial goals.
