Pakistan’s Telecommunication Boom
Did you know that in 2012, Pakistan is producing the third highest SMS traffic in the world? In 2009, Pakistanis sent over 151 billion text messages! Pakistan has the highest mobile penetration rate in the South Asian region in March 2012 – and we’re talking about 118 million mobile subscribers.
What the first mobile phones used to offer are basic communication tools like text message service and calling service. The technological development of mobile phones has led to the addition of recording, audio and video, messaging and internet. It is because of these additional features that the rise of android phones or smart phones came to instant popularity. You won’t get surprised with the influx of competing mobile cellphone brands in this country.
