Mobilink and Warid are now officially merged under one brand name called “Jazz”.
The unveiling ceremony took place yesterday where CEO of Mobilink (now Jazz) Aamir Ibrahim announced Mobilink and Warid as a unified entity “Jazz”. The Facebook handle reads,
“We are moving ahead in our digital journey to empower each and every citizen of Pakistan, all under the one name you love – Jazz #DunyaKoBataaDou #TimeToChange”
Jazz is planning on going through with the SIMs replacement process in phases and after the process is finished, old Warid SIMs will stop working.
VimpelCom, the parent company of Mobilink and Dhabi Group, the parent company of Warid, announced the completion of Mobilink and Warid merger after receiving approvals from Islamabad High Court in December 2016.
It will take some time to phase out the brand names of Mobilink and Warid and changes will be implemented in the coming months. This means that all Warid customers will have to get new SIMs to avail 3G and 4G (LTE) services. Warid customers who have 4G SIMs can continue using the same SIMs. However, Mobilink customers can continue using their old SIMs.
This is another step towards digital transformation to provide customers the best of both brands under one entity “Jazz”.
The much hyped merger of two telecommunication giants, Mobilink and Warid merger can be termed as the biggest event in telecom sector of Pakistan. It is one of its kind in Pakistan and will surely shape the future of the industry in coming years.
This merger is not only important from business point of view but it will also serve as the stepping stone in the digital revolution in the country. Mobilink has announced some big plans for future, now that it has completed its merger.
According to Vimplecom’s own statement, the combined Mobilink and Warid entity will be the leading telecommunications provider of 2G, 3G and LTE services in Pakistan, providing higher quality national voice and data coverage, faster downloads, and a wider portfolio of products and services.
With this, Jazz has become the biggest telecom brand of Pakistan with more than 50 million subscribers.
