Mobilink and Ufone formally agrees to share their mobile towers with each other in effort of making the world Green. Each tower costs a huge amount of money as well as maintenance which includes generator services, 24/7 air conditioned unit at the base of the tower. In order to have the “Go Green” effect more, they both decided to share their mobile booster towers countrywide.
Rashid Khan said,
“This alliance is mutually beneficial and will also facilitate us to better align ourselves with our strategic initiatives and become greener. This will further enhance Mobilink’s coverage footprint, already the widest, hence, bringing more value to the customer which is our top priority.”
Abdul Aziz, CEO Ufone, said,
“Ufone has had a keen interest in exploring newer avenues for our “Go Green” initiative and this tower sharing alliance is another step forward to further enhance our initiative. With this alliance Ufone has moved ahead to ensure customers have seamless connectivity no matter where they are in the country. This follows similar alliances with other operators hence allows us to create a positive network layout most beneficial to the customer”
The carbon emitted by the towers and their base stations can now be reduced as well as the expenses on putting up new towers. If Mobilink does not have a coverage in some area where Ufone has, then Mobilink can take advantage and vise versa. But, I think Ufone will get more advantage of this as Mobilink is more widely spread in the roots of Pakistan.
