Mobilink extends free 3G services to 10 Major cities across Pakistan
Mobilink expands its free 3G services to 10 major cities across Pakistan as a means to thank its customers for the trust that they have placed in Mobilink for the past 2 decades. Mobilink acquired the 10 MHz 3G license and launched 3G services in 8 major cities of Pakistan in April 2014 which has expanded to 10 cities in June. With an aggressive roll-out plan for the future Mobilink is currently providing free 3G services in Karachi, Quetta, Faisalabad, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar and Multan while Gujranwala and Sialkot have been added recently. Mobilink is the only operator that offers its customers completely free 3G services in Pakistan.
Bilal Munir Sheikh Chief Commercial Officer, Mobilink, said:
It is part of our strategy to take a forward looking approach regarding 3G roll-out and providing 3G services to our customers. We are serving our customers with the 10 MHz spectrum which takes their data experience at par with the international arena. We have yet again taken a lead in the industry by offering free 3G services which is a way to pay gratitude to our customers who have made Mobilink the No. 1 operator of Pakistan. I am confident that our unmatched customer experience and robust network will uphold the tradition of providing unrivaled services to our customers in the days to come.
Mobilink’s aggressive roll-out of 3G services has received an overwhelming response from the customers as mobile data uptake grows exponentially. In order to empower customers with the latest 3G technology, Mobilink’s free 3G services are complemented with frequent launch of 3G enabled smartphones and tablets. Mobilink will continue to expand its 3G network and provide quality mobile data and internet services to customers across Pakistan.
Mobilink prepaid customers can simply send a blank message to 7003 to activate 3G services, while postpaid customers can call Mobilink Customer Care Centers on the 111 Mobilink Helpline to get the services provisioned on their handsets. To confirm availability of free 3G service in their area, customers can dial *443# from their handsets and get immediate notification about the 3G coverage.
