Today, Zong has announced its highest ever monthly revenue of Rs. 5 Billion for October 2016. The company registered a 23.2% MoM increase in revenues for the month of October 2016, a 26.5% increase in recharge as compared to same month last year.
These results are fueled by major growth in mobile data that registered a phenomenal growth of 200% MoM against October last year.
The 4G uptake doubled in the month of September 2016, reaching 1.71 Million subscribers from 0.9 Million in August. Zong will soon reach 2 Million 4G subscribers to achieve another milestone in the history of Pakistan’s Telecom market.
Zong claims to be the fastest growing data network of Pakistan in terms of subscribers, revenue and network rollout and has been termed by PTA as the best network in voice and data services.
1000 New 4G Sites Across Pakistan
The company recently announced plans of investing in an additional 1000 4G sites across Pakistan after achieving its 2016 4G rollout plan, three months ahead of schedule.
The addition of 1000 4G sites, will take the overall tally of Zong’s 4G sites to around 6,000 by the end of this year, making it the largest, widest and fastest in terms of 4G coverage.
To facilitate the company’s ambitious expansion plans, Zong’s parent company, China Mobile Communication Corporation, gave a go ahead for additional investment that will take Zong’s total investment in 4G to over $300 Million.
