External Analysis of Warid:
In Pakistan’s telecom sector Liberalizing and deregulation start.Goverment issue licenseto Warid. In 2004 mobile licenses to two new companies were awarded through open bidding against auction bidding price of US$291 million each. Warid is one of them.
Warid try to come with innovative ideas. Like Warid comes in the market with the low prices. They target the low class people. Warid take initiative of introducing “30 sec billing” as opposed to per minute billing. It has a pricing strategy that is comparable andgive reasonable return to their shareholders. There major target was the customers thatare new mobile users, the rest have churned from other service providers.Warid telecomis the First LDI operator who has started the build up of nation wide fiber optic network.It is likely that this will result in increased capacity in the marketplace and will bring thetariffs further down. Other factors that Warid was concentrated on are: 1) Advertising2) Market assessment 3)Price packaging. The Warid came with the challenge in mind of how to differentiate themselves from others and to expand the horizon of telecom inPakistan, by ensuring a high standard of network quality and customer service. Wariddifferentiating factor are their customer care and support, which is currently secondary inthe cellular market in Pakistan.Mobilink has strong network throughout Pakistan so waridhas major threat from it before implementation of MNP (mobile number portability).Warid and Telenor are tough competitors.
