Zong: The Most Searched Telecom Company in Pakistan in 2017

As per Google Trends data, Zong is the most searched telecom company in 2017. Its index went behind Jazz just for once. Ufone, on the other hand, was the least searched among the four telecom companies. The reason for it might be that Ufone is the only company that doesn’t offer 4G services to the customers.

In Pakistan, after the Mobilink-Warid merger, there are only four telecom companies. In 2017 these companies emphasized more on customer orientation than ever before. Jazz held Facebook live sessions with its users, Telenor started consumer-focused campaigns like “Jo Har Pakistani Chahay”, and Zong is the leading customer-centric telecom company in Pakistan.
