Zong has crossed 1.5 Million 4G subscribers and this news was shared at Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) Headquarters, followed by a dignified celebration ceremony.
It is to be noted that Zong recently expanded its 4G coverage to over 200 cities nationwide and was also designated by PTA as the No.1 operator in voice and data services. Last month, Zong announced additional investment in 1,000 4G sites which will take the overall tally of Zong’s 4G sites to over 6,000 by the end of this year. Through this, the total 4G investment to date of Zong in Pakistan is going to cross USD 300 Million mark.
The event was graced by Zong’s Chairman and CEO Mr. Liu Dianfeng and PTA’s Chairman Mr. Ismail Shah, amongst other dignitaries.
Underscoring Zong’s phenomenal success in the 4G arena, Zong’s Chairman and CEO Mr. Liu Dianfeng commented; “In the future, we want to be able to continue this trend of keeping the No.1 data network position in Pakistan and add more investment on our 4G network. We have very recently announced an additional 1,000 4G sites, above and beyond our original target of 5,000 4G sites which is unparalleled amongst any operator in the country.”
Speaking on the occasion Chairman PTA Mr. Ismail Shah said; “I congratulate Zong on achieving this milestone of more than 1.5 million 4G subscribers. They are adding an additional 1,000 4G sites across Pakistan which will ensure that more than 60% of their network is converted to support 4G. This is a major milestone for Zong and will go a long way in developing the 4G ecosystem of the country.”
