Seeing a tremendous market potential, Multinet Pakistan and ChinaCache are confident to receive positive response s to the initiative.
“The timing of this alliance is critical as we are about to see an enormous growth in Pakistan’s Telecom market very soon. With the 3G/4G networks evolving rapidly, the broadband subscription growing by leaps and bounds, an unprecedented proliferation of smart devices in the market, and internet usage demanding high-quality content, our CDN network will be just the right step to offer end customers with an ultimate surfing experience. The time-to-market for CDN services in Pakistan is crucial as the first mover’s advantage achieved by the alliance with ChinaCache will be hard to compete with,” said Mr. Muhammad Rashid Shafi, the Chief Strategy Officer and Senior Executive Vice President of Multinet Pakistan.
