Archived report: this report was archived in November 2010; prior to that, it had not been updated since early 2010. This report looks at the major players in Pakistan’s telecommunications market. The market continues to be dominated by the Pakistan Telecommunication Co Ltd (PTCL), although this dominance will no doubt be affected by the ongoing process of opening up the telecoms market. PTCL was established in 1990. In 1996 it became a publicly listed company, but remained 88% state-owned. The government, having remained strongly committed to further privatisation, sold a controlling 26% of the company to the UAE-based Etisalat in a complicated deal that was finalised in April 2006.
