Mobile Subscriber Growth Slows Down

After many months of the fastest growth ever, the slowdown has eventually hit the Pakistan mobile industry. The chart tells the story: since July the monthly additions have gone down. Mobilink and Telenor continue their strong growth trends and are set to be the leaders. Ufone growth was slow in Sep and Oct.

 Any explanations for this trend?

    The chart shows a massive drop in Ufone and relative low subscribers for Warid. However the rest of the industry is pretty much consistent. This probably is down to quality of service/Packages being offered by those companies and what does it mean to end user in terms of value for money. Mobilink is consistent with its figures, and telenor is not doing bad either. I can see more subscribers with better service being offered by big dogs.
