The Company has also been awarded a new License for providing cellular services in Azad Jammu & Kashmir and Northern Areas.

HISTORY of Industry:
In 1990, Pakistan introduced its first mobile phone service called “Paktel”. After eleven years in January 2001, a new cellular company with GSM technology came into the market and they named it Ufone. The government of Pakistan granted them the license of Pak Telecom mobile limited to operate GSM 9000 all
Around Pakistan. Ufone succeeded to establish itself in the market by providing quality service at low rates. After it’s opening, initially they started their service in major cities like Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore and on major highways. Later the service expanded to other major cities like Peshawar, Quetta and different towns.
Ufone invested around $ 65 million to setup its modern technical infrastructure to provide high quality crystal clear voice and fast data transmission. Ufone targeted the middle class, by introducing low rates and different packages with Urdu names like Jazba etc to attracted lower and middle class people. Ufone has expanded its customer support in a very organized manner with a planned network of dealers, outlets for people convenient. Ufone is committed to care for its customers even after they have acquired a new connection. Ufone not only focused on the technical capabilities, but to provide subscribers a convenient to get connections and services. Ufone recently started GPRS through which users can connect themselves to the global village via Internet, also introduced multimedia messaging services and worldwide SMS at flat rates. Not only SMS but also provides Ufone Info service through which user can get latest information about news, sports, religion, horoscope, stock exchange etc even live sports updates.
The tariff packages have been designed keeping in mind the requirements of every segment of the society may that be a housewife, a taxi driver, a trader or a student. Ufone started its operation from Islamabad on 29th January 2001. Cellular industry performance in Pakistan before the launch of Ufone was quite dismal, with one of the lowest population penetration rates in the
Whole region. Ufone’s strategy from the day one was to change this scenario and ensure that mobile phones are turned into an everyday business and personal communication tools for all. This approach brought about a revolution in the market; increasing its size five fold in a mere two years.
Ufone’s own performance in these two years has been exemplary, as it surpassed all financial and marketing goals. Despite Ufone’s strategy to provide a high standard of service rather than increasing subscriber base without capacity, it has achieved a substantial market share in a market ten years older than itself.

COMPANY PROFILE:

An organization’s culture usually reflects the vision or mission of the organization’s founder. Because the founder has the original idea, Ufone also have biases on how to carry out the idea. Ufone is one of the main players of the telecom industry. Since its launching, it has gathered a large number of customers. 
Ufone was established to operate cellular telephony. The company commenced its operations, under the brand name of Ufone, from Islamabad on January 29, 2001.
During the year 2006, as a consequence of PTCL’s privatization, 26% of its shares were acquired by Emirates Telecommunication Corporation (Etisalat). Being part of PTCL, the management of Ufone has also been handed over to Etisalat. During the year July 2005 to June 2006, Ufone continued on the path to success. The Company further expanded its coverage and has added new cities and highways. Ufone has network coverage in more than 750 cities, towns and across all major highways of the country.

Brand:
While keeping its tradition of being the trend setter in the industry, Ufone changed the image of mobile phones from a luxury only affordable by the elite, to a necessity affordable by the common man. Since its inception, Ufone has positioned its brand for masses. In keeping with the upcoming competition and market dynamics, Ufone increased its focus on the youth segment (which comprises 50% of the population), with the Prepay brand. By designing market focused products, Ufone’s brand team launched aggressive campaigns, which further increased the brand equity. The new brand image gained huge popularity amongst the targeted market. A recent marketing survey conducted by a prominent marketing research company showed that Ufone has considerably increased its brand visibility and image. Ufone’s Prepay brand is now considered to be one of the most favored brands by the youth market and is followed by other mobile operators launching their respective brands for the youth market.
Performance:
As mobile users in the country have reached over 28 million at a very rapid pace, Ufone has maintained itself as the 2nd largest cellular operator in Pakistan with a subscriber base of around 6.5 million and a market share of nearly 25%. Ufone has seen a subscriber growth rate of over 200% in the last year, and since the start of 2005 Ufone added nearly 5 million subscribers onto its network. A remarkable achievement indeed, especially considering the fact that two new international players also entered into the market in 2005. Subsequently the growth in subscriber base caused a healthy trend in revenues which have doubled.

PEST Analysis of Ufone:

 In PEST P stands for Political, E stands for economical, S stands for social and T stands for technological analysis of industry with respect to their environment. The organization's advertising surroundings is made up from:
1.The organization inner environment e.g. staff (or internal customers), office, technology, wages and finance, etc. 2.The organization external-environment e.g. our external customers, agents and distributors, suppliers, our competitors, etc. 3.The country forces affecting the environment e.g. Political forces, Economic forces, Socio-cultural forces, and Technological forces. These are known as PEST factors.

Political:

Political environment of Pakistan is stable in the current situation and country is not progressing in terms of economic growth that was expected.

·        Environment is investor non-friendly & telecommunication sector is under regulation.

·        Before WTO implementation government already took steps in regulation of telecommunication sector.

Economic Factors:

·        Marketers should consider long term and short term state of a trading market

·        Inflation is being controlled by state bank and under strict eyes but unemployment rate is going up & up with the increase of level of poverty

·        Economic instability is worsening day by day as liquidity crunch is prevailing in the world

 

Socio-Cultural:

·        As Pakistan is an Islamic country and people are very strict in case of Islam any thing against the philosophy of Islam on either print or electronic media are treated as against Pakistan.
·        Most of the people dislike anything extra-ordinary or something which sabotage their culture or subculture.

·        Companies who are targeting upper-end of market mostly published and aired their advertisement in English language.

·        In metropolitan cities women are doing work along with their other responsibilities but other than metropolitan cities it is difficult for women to convince their parents and spouses for works

Technological Factors:

·        Companies have technology with which they can compete in the Pakistan and now companies are investing in their infrastructure to not only expand but also to upgrade their existing structure.

·        Currently all companies except Zong & Instaphone are providing Multi-media Messaging Services (MMS), General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), Virtual Private Network (VPN), Pocket Stocks, Conference Calling, Wallpapers Animated pictures Polyphonic ring tones (WAP), and Voice Mail at low price and Ufone is proving an addition feature that one can see TV channels on their cell.
