Cellular News has reported that Pakistan gained 10 Million new cell phone customers in first 4 months of 2007. Not much of a news but it shows that the rate of growth is still in high gear, as TelecomPk has mentioned in previous posts, here and here.

Some points worth mentioning:

  • Telenor garnered the biggest portion, with 3m or 30% of the total, ahead of Mobilink (27%), Ufone (25%) and Warid Telecom (21%). Babar’s note: Telenor stock price peaked during this 4 month period as well … and I don’t think it was a coincidence
  • Ufone was the best performer in April, adding 0.89m customers, or 32% of the monthly total.
  • Mobilink crossed the 25m customer barrier, becoming only the 11th Asian mobile company to do so, after China Mobile, China Unicom, NTT DoCoMo, KDDI, Telkomsel, Bharti, Reliance, BSNL, Hutch etc.
