“Telenor Pakistan has installed two dedicated portable BTS towers called Cell on Wheels (COW’s) to provide uninterrupted communication in Wam, Balochistan; the earthquake affected areas. Free mobile connections and air time has also been distributed amongst selected national and international NGO’s rescue & relief workers, to assist them in their rehabilitation work.” (ProPakistani.com)
Such relief activities by corporate entities are highly commendable. Other companies should also come up and help in relief activities.
However this also shows that Balochistan is left far behind in telecom race, having least coverage by any network. It is true that companies may not be getting huge profits by investing there. But government should subsidize to increase network penetration in the province, whose people are already feeling deprived and left behind.
