Canadian firm interested in cellular business
ISLAMABAD: The Polar Wireless Network of Canada is exploring possibilities to enter into the cellular business to introduce SIMs transformative technology in Pakistan, the Board of Investment announced here on Wednesday.
It offers the first ‘Worldwide SIM Card’ that combines with a subscribers home SIM card to provide wholesale prepaid rates on Voice, SMS and Data services when roaming.
The network operates a mobile virtual network that works in combination with subscriber’s current cell phone provider. The Polar Wireless Network eliminates roaming charges while offering competitive calling rates.
The Polar SIMs transformative technology is the first to allow subscribers to keep their existing mobile phones and home phone numbers while taking advantage of discounted roaming rates abroad. All calls are carrier grade voice quality and only premium telecom routes are used.
President of Polar Wireless Network Steve Robert held a meeting with the chairman of the Board of Investment, Saleem H. Madviwalla, in Seoul on Wednesday and made a presentation on the services which the company intends to introduce in Pakistan.
Mr Mandviwalla assured the Canadian company of the government’s support to partner with both local carriers and distributors. The service would be beneficial for the users travelling abroad and seeking connectivity to their home towns as well, he said.
The Polar Wireless SIM activates when subscribers leave their home wireless network.
