Jazz, Pakistan’s prime digital company has introduced Jazz Digit 4G Phone. While Pakistan boasts having some of the cheapest tariff rates for voice and data, the main barrier to the internet has been the affordability of smartphones. Over 90 Million mobile users in Pakistan have no access to the Internet. Jazz introduced Jazz4G phone for everyone for the betterment of their lives.
The least price for a basic smartphone is over 8500, and that, after Nokia Launched its C1. Prior to the Nokia C1, basic smartphones with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of Storage, supporting 4G were starting from at least 14K PKR.
The launch event was attended by leading government and telecom leaders who lauded a private sector company for being invested in improving the country’s digital and financial inclusion landscape.
The Ultimate Goal!
This initiative targets the wellbeing of the lesser privileged and underserved segment of our society with over 55% of Pakistan’s 165m subscribers using the feature and 2G phones with internet penetration standing at 35%. While access to the internet is said to be the most effective driver of GDP for emerging economies.
