Telenor launched 4G free trial
Telenor has launched 4G service in Pakistan's six major cities
Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Multan, Peshawar, and Swat
The Norwegian telecom giant's prepaid and post-paid users will initially be able to avail the service free of cost for a limited period of time.
However, they are required to get their SIMs replaced from the service centres and have 850 MHz compatible 4G GSM.
Telenor was awarded a $395 million 4G licence last month, as Pakistan sought to capitalise on a booming domestic mobile market some two years since broadband Internet arrived in the country.
In 2014, Pakistan auctioned its first 4G broadband license to China’s Zong for $210 million, along with 3G licenses to Zong, the UAE’s Ufone, and domestic Mobilink. The total raised in the auction was $1.2 billion."
