Pakistan Conference Calls
- International conference calls involve group phone calls with participants
located in various countries such as Pakistan, India, China, the United States and any other countries where you
may have attendees located.
A specialized service is required to connect all of these participants while also allowing each individual to dial
a number from their own countries and to be connected to the call quickly.
Initiate and host international conference
calls from within Pakistan.
Your international participants will be issued local phone numbers (or toll free phone numbers) unique to their
own countries to use to access your Pakistan international conference call.
For yourself and any other participants located in Pakistan, you'd
simply dial the Lahore Pakistan access number to join the call.
As an example, by using the Pakistan international conference call service, you can issue a Lahore access number for Pakistan, a toll free number
for India, another for China guests, and another for the United States (and any other countries where you have

Meanwhile, with an international conference call, the host of the call gains access to the service provider's high
quality telecommunications network and competitive rates. The best international conference calling plans include
additional features such as moderator dial out, mobile Connect App, MP3 call recording, and pay-as-you-go plans.
International conference calls work in a similar manner to domestic ones in that participants dial an access number
and enter a code to be connected to the group call. The main difference between international and domestic conference
calls involves the assignment of international phone numbers for participants around the globe.
Another important difference is that callers are routed over a high quality PSTN network. This often results in
much better sound quality for callers in countries with poor telecommunications infrastructures because the call
bypasses local networks.
The days of paying $5 (or more) per minute to call to or from Pakistan are long gone. Whether you have friends,
family members, or business associates in Pakistan, you can easily - and affordably - connect with them via an
international conference call.
Pakistan Telecommunications Sector
by the numbers
- With an estimated population of more than 196 million as of July 2014, the CIA World Fact Book lists Pakistan
as the 7th most populous nation in the world. Pakistan's telecommunications infrastructure is undergoing dramatic
improvements thanks to both foreign and domestic investments in the nation's telephone networks. Pakistan's telecommunications
network includes coaxial cable, microwave radio relay, satellite, fiber optic cable, and cellular networks.
As of 2012, Pakistan had 5.803 million mainline telephones in use. Data from 2013 puts its mobile cellular subscriber
numbers much higher at 125 million. Like many countries, the growth of mobile cellular networks has skyrocketed.
Meanwhile, growth of fixed-line systems remains sluggish in comparison, a trend that further positions mobile phones
as an attractive alternative. Fixed-line service in rural areas remains spotty. In Pakistan, over 50 percent of
residents have access to a mobile phone and the vast majority live in areas with cell phone coverage.
As far as the Internet goes, Pakistan had 365,813 Internet hosts as of 2012, putting it 57th in comparison to the
rest of the world. In 2009, Pakistan had 20.431 million Internet users which puts it 20th compared to the rest
of the world. As of 2012, roughly 10 percent of Pakistan's population used the Internet. All major cities in Pakistan
have broadband Internet service ranging from 1 to 50 MBit/s.
Pakistan serves as a landing point for two submarine cable systems (SEA-ME-WE-3 / SEA-ME-WE-4). These systems provide
connectivity to the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. In addition, Pakistan has three satellite earth stations, three
Intelsat (1 Atlantic Ocean and 2 Indian Ocean); 3 operational international gateway exchanges, and microwave radio
relay to neighboring countries.
Pakistan Telecommunications Service Providers
In 1994, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority was created and became the nation's first independent telecommunications
regulator. At the same time, and as part of the Telecommunications Ordinance of 1994, the Pakistan Telecommunication
Company LTD (PTCL) was formed as a state-owned monopoly. As with most monopolies, costs for consumers were high
and customer service low thanks to a lack of competition. For example, a call from Pakistan to the United States
in this era reportedly cost as high as $5 per minute.
These excessive costs were addressed in 2003 under the Deregulation Policy for the Telecommunications Sector which
opened the Pakistani telecommunications market to foreign investors. Some of the major telecommunications operators
in Pakistan include the following:
- PTCL - PTCL was formerly 100 percent government-owned.
However, Etisalat International Pakistan purchased a 26 percent stake in and assumed management control of the
company in 2006.
- V Wireless (owned by PTCL)
- SuperNet Limited
- Warid Telecom
- Transworld Associates
- Ufone (owned by PTCL)
Pakistan Internet Service Providers
PTCL and Wateen are the largest broadband Internet service providers in Pakistan while smaller providers (such
as World Call, Micro Net, Maxcom, NayaTel, Multi Net, COMSATS, Cyber Net, Gerry's Net, Speed.Net, fiber2home, Brain
Net, Witribe, and SkyNet) offer DSL service in Pakistan. Wireless broadband in the 36 MBit/s range is also available
Pakistan International Calling Costs
Today, calling costs to or from Pakistan are much lower thanks to robust competition. For example, Verizon's International
Long Distance Value Plan has a $5 per month access charge and international long distance calling rates from USA
to Pakistan of 33 to 35 cents per minute.
While those rates represent a dramatic fall from the rates of the 1990s, many third party telecommunications service
providers offer even better rates to and from Pakistan. For example, a toll free international conference call
with participants in Pakistan can cost as little as 22 cents per minute or even less (as little as 11 cents per
minute) if the moderator of the call dials participants in Pakistan directly.
