Islamabad, November 25, 2021 (PPI-OT):Leading the digital innovation in the country, Zong 4G has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Special Communication Organization (SCO) to work towards the Prime Minister’s vision of Digital Pakistan. The MoU has been signed in a major development to offer their mutual subscribers a seamless and faster connectivity experience across the AJK and GB. Through mutual collaboration, Zong and SCO will expand the network across the length and breadth of the AJK and GB to provide unmatched experiences to the customers.
