KARACHI: Enfrashare Pakistan Private Limited and Telenor Pakistan, one of Pakistan’s top mobile network operators, have signed an agreement to develop connectivity infrastructure, a statement said on Tuesday.
Under this partnership, Enfrashare will help develop connectivity infrastructure and provide key services to Telenor, thereby upscaling connectivity and enabling them to focus on core business functions.
This partnership aims to enhance Pakistan’s critical communication infrastructure network while allowing Telenor to meet its coverage and capacity requirements for rapidly growing data demands.
Owned by one of the largest groups in Pakistan – Engro Corporation Limited – Enfrashare was formed with the vision to help enhance digital connectivity throughout the country. While its expertise and investment in connectivity infrastructure allow mobile operators to reduce the cost of access to consumers, Enfrashare aims to engage with all stakeholders in the telecom ecosystem in order to realize a larger goal of digitizing Pakistan.
On behalf of Engro, company spokesman Aman ul Haque stated: “Engro firmly believes that connectivity is a basic human need and is the conduit that enables social and financial inclusion. We are very proud of what the Enfrashare team has accomplished in a short span since its inception last year.
“This agreement will allow Enfrashare to work with one of the most respected operators in the country to provide enhanced solutions. Enfrashare envisions enabling broader connectivity and encompasses all necessary components including towers, fiber, energy, and more. This partnership marks the beginning of a new journey, where two key corporates will bring together their expertise to better connect Pakistan.”
Deputy CEO and Chief Technology Officer at Telenor Pakistan, Khurrum Ashfaque, said, “We, at Telenor Pakistan, are driven by our vision of empowering Pakistan through enhanced connectivity and believe that telecom technology is a true driver towards bridging the socio-economic divide.
“We look forward to working with Enfrashare to provide innovative and advanced solutions, including fiber and energy optimization, that will be instrumental for network enhancement in years to come.”
This collaboration reaffirms Enfrashare’s commitment to enhance the connectivity infrastructure landscape in the country, as well as complements the Government’s efforts to provide access to modern communication to all across Pakistan.
