Paktel Limited in Pakistan Directory
Paktel brought a revolution in the way Pakistanis communicate by introducing mobile telephony in Pakistan. In 1991 Paktel launched the first mobile service in Pakistan, at a time when the concept of mobile phones was alien. Only an elite few could afford the bulky sets that were available at that time. Initially owned by world renowned company Cable & Wireless; Paktel, through the use of TDMA technology developed a market of mobile cell phones by meeting the basic need of mobile one-to-one voice communication. In 2001 Paktel ownership changed hands. Under the leadership of Millicom Cellular International, Paktel in the same year further strengthened its position through the launch of its pre-paid service under the brand name of Tango brand. Tango firmly established Paktel as a provider of premium quality at an affordable price, and it soon became one of the hottest selling pre-paid mobile phone services. We introduced services such as SMS, picture messages, polyphonic ring tones, conference calling, call forwarding etc. Changing market dynamics however calls for new strategies. The next stage in Paktel’s life came with the move toward GSM technology. In 2003 the countdown for GSM began with the commercial launch of GSM services in 2004. Paktel GSM was launched with a total coverage of over 31 cities making the launch the biggest ever to hit the mobile sector. Today Paktel with a subscriber base of over 1 million is committed to providing superior services to its consumers. We provide GSM coverage in above 300 cities and towns, a number which is increasing everyday. We provide access to remote areas of Pakistan where even regular phone service is limited.
