Mobilink Becomes First Operator to Offer 3G Coverage in Over 100 Cities
Mobilink today announced that it has become country’s first operator to have 3G footprints in over 100 cities with more than 3.5 million active data subscribers in less than a year of its commercial launch of 3G services.
Mobilink has said that it offered blanket coverage in one city with 3G services before moving on to next city, which has provided users with a unique experience and maximum value for money.

Mobilink said that it expanded its network across the country by providing comprehensive coverage in both metros and smaller cities across the four provinces in parallel.
In order to encourage the use of 3G and to increase awareness, Mobilink offers its customers free 3G for a limited period of time which has been appreciated by people from all walks of life.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Amir Ibrahim, CCO & Deputy CEO Mobilink said:
