ISLAMABAD ( ABRAR MUSTAFA )
Telenor has officially lodged a complained to Competition Commission Pakistan (CCP) regarding the merger between Mobilink and Warid. The letter that was submitted to the Commission states categorically that the merger will create a strong monopoly in the market and change the dynamics for other companies.
VimpelCom which owns Mobilink in Pakistan was also part of Telenor Group. In 2015 Telenor decided to release its shares in VimpelCom and removed its personnel from the board of VimeplCom. This is now clearly being reflected here in Pakistan where Telenor has directly taken action against Mobilink and its aspirations for more growth in Pakistan.
