65.2% Pakistanis had access to mobile services in October 2011: PTA

According to a report of ProPakistani, Pakistan’s teledensity had reached 65.2% in October 2011, which means 111,126,434 Pakistanis were using mobile phones. The claim has been made on base of Pakistan Telecommunication Authority PTA’s recently issued statistics.
Earlier in June 2011, the number of telecom subscribers was recorded at 108,894,518 which means that 64.8% Pakistanis had access to mobile services in June 2011. So Increase in teledensity ratio was just 0.4% from June 2011 to October 2011. But still due to large population of Pakistan, the 0.4% ratio means 939,964 people.
Mobilink, a subsidiary of Egyptian company Orascom, owned the highest number of telecom subscribers as 33,537,922 people were its customers. Telenor was second in rank and it had 27,607,043 subscribers. Ufone, which is a subsidiary of Etisalat had 20,828,143 subscribers, Warid 15,985,299 and Zong 13,168,025 subribers.
In the race of adding new people in subscribers Telenor stood at top as it brought 939,964 people in the list of its subscribers. Ufone was second at 294,358 and Mobilink third at 159,761. But the change in networks due to Mobile Nuumber Portability (MNP), which has been banned due to law in order situation, have not been told by telecom watchdog, however.
