+ Advance Telecom
A new generation mobile phone company
Advance Telecom, a company that not only operates as the nation’s leading mobile phone distributor and Nokia’s official preferred partner but also we believe to have evolved beyond the rudimentary status of a distributor. We see ourselves and every other entity in the communication business as a partner in the communication model. Advance Telecom joins hands with both the telecom service providers and Nokia, the product producer in forming a communication model which enables the end-users to enjoy the revolution of cellular communication.
Over the years with God’s blessings we have earned a well reputed and distinguished status in the industry through our honest efforts over a consistent period of time. With over a decade and a half of dedicated and devoted efforts we proudly claim to have a significant family of loyal customers and arc connecting with numerous new members each year. Our nationwide network is spread all across, and we are making our best efforts to ensure that we satisfy our customer requirements in all aspects and at all times assuring an effective communication experience.
Pakistan’s Cellular Phone Industry
Telecommunication, one of the leading and fastest growing sectors in Pakistan contributes a valuable share to the economy. Advance Telecom, being a pioneering member of the industry has been playing an important role in the development of this sector. With the trust of our customers, industry partners and affiliates we continue with the efforts of striving for excellence and repeat our feats of numerous industry firsts in the years to come.
A significant industry trend in line with the International cellular market is the rise of the smartphones category and in contrast to this development in the urban sector; the rural geographies are now being focused as serious potentials of a segmented product.
In line with our mission, we continue to maintain our technological edge by bringing the latest mobile phones with excellent backup support of Nokia Care for our valued customers. For the very first time in Pakistan, we have made our local mobile users at par with International mobile users. For the past decade or so we have been a cornerstone in consumer parity that trickles from global mobile users to the local users. Whenever a new mobile phone is launched globally, we ensure that it reaches our valued customers as soon as possible, with adequate pricing and unadulterated products and accessories.
The Years in the Making
The journey of Advance Telecom interestingly precedes the existence of the company itself which came into existence in 2001. Our association with the cellular industry dates back to 1996 when we initially had a portfolio of brands to offer to the cellular phone consumers of Pakistan. Our unchanged principles and business ethics are a source of pride and self-belief when we look back to our history and realize that the very principles that brought about the existence of the company are still prevalent in their true spirit. Our customers have been at the focal of our business efforts and extending an ever reliable relationship through the best of products and services which is our aim and motto.
