Warid expands GSM network to 480 cities

20 Aug 2009

Pakistani mobile operator Warid Telecom has announced that it has now rolled out its network to a total of 480 cities across the country. The cellco said that, following this latest expansion, it is able to offer its GSM-based services across more than 12,000km, with more than 6,000 towns and villages covered. The network extension falls in line with the operator’s previously announced plans; according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, in December 2008 Warid said it would increase coverage by 250 cities, although it did not provide a timeframe for completion of the work. Warid has also revealed it aims to include remote and rural areas in its expansion plans, focussing on the Northern Areas (NA), Azzad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Balochistan.
