A tenant’s perspective on the potential of the Pakistani tower market
ICondor’s affordable BurQ Wi-Fi Broadband Service targeting 2,500 co-locations in the next four years
Oubay Atassi is renowned in Pakistan as one of the architects of Ufone’s network, having overseen phases one through three of their rollout during his tenure as Managing Director of Nortel Networks Pakistan from 2001-3. So ten years later, when Oubay wanted to extend the footprint of his Wi-Fi Broadband Service BurQ beyond Latin America, Pakistan was the natural choice. Although it’s early days in Pakistan for BurQ, and their holding company ICONDOR, their business plan calls for 2,500 tenancies on towers and over 300,000 access points in the next four years.
