Posted by 25 February, 2009 (5) Comment

mobilink1I recently read an article on the Telecommunication Magazine ‘Flare’ about Mobilink, one of the biggest mobile phone operators in Pakistan, is in a very critical position. Most of the franchises have been shut down because of no business. According to the article, customers are losing their confidence in Moblink because of the poor services and involvement in illegal activities like providing millions of SIMs without any identity verification.

mobilink shutting down

Report says that Mobilink lost around 2 million subscribers in recent months in which 750,000 users ported out to other services and remaining 12,50,000 user’s SIMs have been blocked by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) implying the new rules. The number of Mobilink Users porting out is highest among all the mobile phone operators.

Mobilink sold millions of illegal SIMs which caused Pakistan to suffer from terrorism. Even after the orders of PTA, Mobilink showed reluctance in blocking the illegal SIMs instantly because if they had done that, even more subscribers would be lost. Moblink users are dropping as high as 500,000 every month. The current number of Mobilink is approximately 20 millions.
