23rd April was the day the 3G/4G auction took place and it is expected that it would bring a great change in Pakistan’s Internet and Mobile phone networks.

We wanted to share some of the potential benefits of having faster internet on mobile phones.

Social Benefits

  • Faster internet means more people will be attracted to using the internet on their phones.
  • Smartphone capabilities will increase as more web/internet dependent apps will be applicable for Pakistan. 
  • Pakistanis will be able to enjoy things like streaming video, accessing news, and social media on the go.
  • Internet availability will be expanded to larger parts of the country Not only in the business sector but the other major sectors like Education, FMCGs, food and health, Banking sectors, electronic media, multinational brands, and more.

Economic Benefits

  • 3G will modernize companies’ workflows and allow more to be done by staff remotely.
  • Developing applications for the local market will become more feasible as usability through the internet is possible.
  • The sale of the 3G/4G licenses has already garnered $1.12 billion.

When we recently interviewed Mr. Irfan Wahab Khan, Chief Marketing Officer of Telenor Pakistan, said:

“World over 3G services have resulted in the introduction of 3G devices at an accelerated rate. We feel the same will happen in Pakistan, as category education will be the prime objective of telecoms. The demand for 3G capable devices will go up resulting in the introduction of cheaper 3G variants due to competition within the phone manufacturers."

We hope that 3G would bring us more and more benefits as it is rolled out in the coming months.
