Pakistan Mobile Communications Limited, or Mobilink, is the leading telecommunications service provider in Pakistan, with 37 million subscribers and market share of 34% as of October 2013. Its headquarters are in Islamabad.
Mobilink started operations in 1994 as the first GSM cellular mobile service in Pakistan by Motorola Inc., which later sold it to Orascom Telecom, an Egypt-based multinational company.
In addition to cellular service, the Orascom Group is diversifying its service portfolio by setting up new businesses and expanding through acquisitions. Recently, they started offering DSL broadband through a wholly owned subsidiary called Link.Net. In addition to Mobilink, the Orascom group also owns TWA (Transworld Associates) which operates an undersea fiber-optic cable from Karachi, Pakistan, to Fujairah, UAE.
As of June 2010 Mobilink had issued two listed bonds valued at R$3.2 billion and R$6 billion.
In addition to its cellular service, Mobilink began providing DSL/Wimax Internet service to 26 major cities in Pakistan, including Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Faisalabad, Peshawar, Multan, Gujranwala, Gujrat, Jhelum, Sialkot, Hyderabad, Tharushah, Mardan, Rahim Yar Khan, Sahiwal, Wah, Sargodha, Sheikhupura, Abbotabad, Quetta, Dera Ghazi Khan, Ghazi Kot, Bahawalpur, Sukkur, Nawabshah, and Larkana.
