Ufone and Warid Telecom Pakistan signed an agreement on Wednesday to facilitate both these operators in sharing a common infrastructure including sites and towers for coming ten years.
This agreement between two of Pakistan's leading telecom companies is based on providing an improved quality of services for their valued customers as well as speeding up of network rollouts. This mutual consent based initiative will not only help reduce costs for these companies in developing separate sites for their networks but also allow an environment friendly solution to communication needs.
Speaking at the occasion, President and CEO Ufone, Abdul Aziz said, "Ufone has always committed itself to providing a high quality network for its customers. This development in the telecom industry of Pakistan will further allow us to keep offering our users better services along with protecting our environment and preserving the scenic beauty of our country. Ufone has always been an assertive player in this market and this agreement shows our efforts to keep up with the superior practices of the cellular industry." At the same agreement signing ceremony, CEO Warid Telecom, Marwan Zawaydeh said.
"This agreement that we have signed today is in line with PTA's policy to encourage mobile operators to share a common infrastructure. This mutual infrastructure usage will not only be a great way of promoting our corporate social responsibility but will also play a significant role in protecting our environment.
With this big step in the telecom industry we will not only save space and electricity but also allow both Ufone and Warid Telecom to expedite network rollouts; further reducing the overall operational costs. At the end of the day, this agreement will benefit our customers more than it benefits us."
