Telenor expands reach

24 Mar 2005

Pakistan’s newest cellco Telenor officially opened its GSM network in Lahore, Faisalabad and Hyderabad yesterday. The move follows the formal launch on 15 March, when it rolled out its first GSM services to Islamabad, Karachi and Rawalpindi. The Telenor network will initially cover a population of around 32 million people; it plans to expand its reach to more cities during the course of this year and must achieve 70% population coverage within four years.
