PTCL & Ufone swiftly restore network disrupted by torrential rains, flooding in the Southern region

Karachi:PTCL and Ufone have swiftly restored their network disrupted by heavy rains and flooding in parts of Balochistan and Sindh in a record time through rapid mobilization of their on-ground resources. The torrential rains also caused major damage to road and bridge infrastructure in the region, further intensifying the challenge of timely restoration of the network, however, PTCL and Ufone field teams were able to live up to their commitment to keeping their customers connected at all times.

Sindh, especially Karachi and the coastal belt of Balochistan received one of the heaviest monsoon spells in the recent past, which resulted in urban flooding, severe damage to roads and bridges infrastructure, and massive commercial power breakdown. PTCL’s Optical Fiber cable deployed alongside roads and bridges also got swept away at multiple locations.

The Northern and Central Zones of the country were no different where exchanges and network nodes got flooded leading to network outages. Baluchistan’s Makran division was the worst hit, resulting in major damage to road infrastructure, electricity transmission lines, and the PTCL OFC network. The cumulative situation resulted in a huge challenge before the PTCL and Ufone field teams to uphold their commitment to keeping their customers seamlessly connected.

As the National Carrier and Backbone of Country’s Connectivity, the company quickly responded to the situation by deploying teams in the affected area to restore the Optical Fiber Cable through a workaround in order to maintain the best possible business continuity. Despite the inclement weather, difficult terrain, and enormity of the challenge, the teams conducted a 24/7 operation with a high level of commitment to best facilitate the customers.

The company tackled the network disruption across the Southern, North, and Central region caused by commercial power breakdown through the deployment of portable generators until the issue was fixed. The field teams worked tirelessly for days to completely restore connectivity to Turbat, Ormara, Pasni, and Gawadar areas of the worst hit Makran Division in Balochistan and the affected regions of Sindh.

PTCL Group’s effective and timely response to the massive challenge in the face of countless hardships is evidence of its efficiency, resiliency, and readiness to maintain seamless connectivity at all times. The successful restoration of the network amidst a major calamity speaks volumes of the remarkable commitment and resilience of the on-ground teams whose efforts facilitated the smooth conducting of emergency and relief activities and continuity of life and business activities.

Ufone Responds with Acceptable Curves of Faisal Qureshi

Ufone responded long the same venture of Mobilink displaying Nargis Fakri on front pages of local news papers but with lesser acceptable curves for advertising its U5a Smartphone which is selling for Rs.5,999.

Both re popular for humorous TV and print ads they have been doing with success for over a decade till now. The funny ads like Saaf Awaaz have become their trade mark during recent years.

Bringing smile and capitalizing from the fame Nargis Fakhri received last week, Faisal Qurehshi, made an appearance on the front pages of local papers posing exactly the same and for reasons that cannot be mentioned here with much lesser curves.

Playing safe and not taking any chances of a backlash, the Islamic matching Topi  (cap) with Arabic cotton scarf (locally called as Rumaal) was worn by Faisal Qureshi.

Excuse me, Mobile Phone humara sasta aur behtar hay, says the tagline to give a loud and clear message along with all the fun.

It can be said that Faisal Qureshi was successful in sparkling the nation, it is to be hoped that this was ad of the series is the last where models are asked for appearing in such poses.

It is still unsure as to the response of the Pakistani social media on this move, mainly those who objected to in-content ads and to the pose itself.

It also remains to be seen that if a man posing as such is disturbing equally as Nargis Fakhri or not?

As indicated by the details, the company is setting up the most intriguing iPhones yet on pre-orders from one week from now, that is November 6, 2015. The customers of Zong will have the capacity to get hands-on experience of these handsets by obtaining them from November 13, 2015, as told by the company.

It is imperative to mention here that Zong was the last telecom operator of Pakistan that presented iPhones without precedent for the nation a year ago however now, the situation is completely changed and company appears to be resolved this time and this is the very reason it has upgraded this breaking news on its official website. Despite the fact that there are no further details unveiled yet.

To the extent the costs of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus in Pakistan are concerned, it appears like that the base 16 GB model of iPhone 6S can cost up to Rs. 80,000 while the cost of iPhone 6S Plus will be more than Rs. 100,000.

It stays to be seen when rest of the telecom operators of Pakistan will report their position with respect to the introduction of Apple’s most recent leaders. Yet, expect some infectious information bundles for the entire year on purchasing any of these handsets.

iPhone 6S and 6S Plus to be Officially Sold in Pakistan from Mid-November

Ufone is good to go to put iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus, the most advanced iPhones yet, on sale for its clients starting Friday, November 13, 2015, we have gained from sources.

While we don’t have any points of interest on the price of iPhone 6S and 6S plus starting yet, yet we can let you know that more subtle elements will be authoritatively conveyed on November sixth, 2015 when Ufone will begin tolerating pre-orders.

Different administrators will begin comparable offerings, however we don’t have official affirmations from them as such.

Apple had joined hands with neighborhood telecom players a year ago to present its iPhones in Pakistan, authoritatively, and to proceed with the custom iPhone 6S and 6S plus will be put on racks this year once more.

Not to be said iPhones sold through telecom administrators accompany official guarantees and preferred costs over open business sector. These officially sold phones will be factory unlocked.

As of now the base models (with 16GB memory) of iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are being sold at around Rs. 80K and Rs. 100K or above.

It is yet to be perceived how telcos are going to value these phones, yet from the reputation we can affirm that costs from all administrators will be the same, with the exception of the voice and information bargains that they may offer to iPhone purchasers.
