Telenor powers with 3G
(Flare (Pakistan) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Winning 3G spectrum license in Pakistan, Telenor Group continues its steady rollout of high-speed mobile data and Internet for All across its Asian markets. Telenor Pakistan was granted 2x5 MHz of 3G spectrum in the 2100 MHz band, valid for 15 years, in the country's first-ever nextgeneration auction conducted by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).
Telenor Pakistan becomes the fourth of Telenor Group's six Asian operations with 3G network infrastructure. Telenor will add millions of Pakistani subscribers to the Group's growing base of more than 100 million subscribers in its 3G-powered Asian markets. "This is a strong start of the next chapter for Telenor Pakistan and a great milestone for our tenth year in operation.
Pakistan is our fourth '3G market' in Asia, and as we've already experienced in Thailand, Malaysia and Bangladesh, 3G is the enabler of better, faster and more flexible data services and, of course, of Internet for All," said Tore Johnsen, Senior Vice President, Telenor Group region Asia and Chairman, Telenor Pakistan.
