With the coming of all the new telco business. Why is it so that these companies didnt do an offical launch including but not limited to websites/media blitz etc. If good things are happening shouldnt there be public awareness of the services and benefits that the massess will soon see?

When will we witness a true best of breed organization that follows the normal life cycle of starting a new business?

Warid gave a full page ad in DAWN and The News [i think] after Mobilink and U-fone slashed their prices. Announcing their arrival.

You have to remember they actually don't roll out until April next year. Until then, you will see them in the classifieds section, at best. Maybe a feeler in the press or two. Let's see.

By the way , does any one have any thoughts on the following:

Should the people who are being attracted by these telcos and other local businessess aiming at telco $$$ come back to Pakistan. Is the market ready to sustain long term growth of the folks who are being made promises of serious returns.

I have been hearing a lot of buzz about how a lot of qualified people have been approached(by local companies aiming at telco business), but they are struck by the dilemma of leaving global jobs and returning back home- to find out that these local mom and pop shops fizzle away...

what are the market sentiments on growth? Is it realistic to jump ship and head back...???
