Telenor network getting worse by the day in Chitral
CHITRAL: Telenor, the largest GSM network working in the two districts of Chitral has always been an unsatisfactory service. A large number of consumers have subscribed to this service owing to it’s vast network of communication towers all around the districts.
However, as much as it’s network is spread, it’s performance is poor in the same proportion. Consumers keep complaining but complains fall on deaf ears.. The president trade union Chitral Shabir Ahmad has threatened to call for a collective boycott of the company if it’s service is not improved immediately. .. CN report, 04 Sep 2019
Poor Telenor service due to substandard equipment
Chitral :Telenor service is pathetic in Chitral district and subscribers are fed up complaining without getting any positive results.? When one such complaint was made to the District Franchise owner/manager Muinuddin, by Chitral News ,he said that it was primarily because of the substandard equipment fitted in the towers. He however, added that the company has informed franchisees that equipment all over is being converted from ZTE to Nokia equipment which will greatly enhance the quality of service after which 4G will also be enabled immediately. When asked “when will this be done?”, he said within a couple of months as the company authorities have assured him.
It may be mentioned that subscribers of Telenor who are the largest in number in Chitral due to extended coverage in villages etc, are fed up with the service due to weak and faulty reception. One subscriber said he was living under the nose of the Telenor tower but has to get out of his room to catch Telenor signals. Many subscribers have shifted over to Mobilink which has a far better service including 4G internet. .. CN report, 28 Jan 2018.
