WorldCall to Update FTTH Internet Service With TUFA

In partnership with a new partner, TUFA Telecommunications Limited, WorldCall Telecom Limited (WTL) aims to enhance its Fiber to the Home (FTTH) internet services.

Subscribers to the services will be charged an extra fee for the improved services.

WTL has entered into a business partnership agreement with TUFA Telecommunications to target FTTH services across Pakistan, according to a stock filing with the National Stock Exchange (PSX). WTL's existing subscribers will be upgraded to the FTTH technology at no cost when it is first deployed.

Using WTL's existing fiber-optic network, the cooperation can provide seamless communication services. This business venture also seeks to give a big boost to the spread of inexpensive internet services for people of all walks of life.

WTL has more than 1,850 kilometers of fiber optic infrastructure deployed across 20 major cities and the capacity to acquire users from a market of over three million homes.

TUFA Telecommunication (Pvt.) Ltd. is a subsidiary of the Credence Group, an Islamabad telecommunications company that serves all of Pakistan's major areas.

WorldCall Telecom Ltd's management has discussed with ARY Communications to sell its 51 percent ownership in the company due to planned development initiatives. Although the firm was recently in the spotlight at the stock market as the largest gainer in the share price for many sessions, the deal is still being discussed between the two sides.
