The up-gradation of SCO network was completed back in January this year, however, both the modern and legacy networks were operating in parallel till now.

SCO, in a press statement, said that its legacy network was cut off last night and SCO’s entire network is now operating on an upgraded network that’s compatible with advanced technologies.

SCO claimed to have the most advanced NGMS Core Network in Pakistan, capable of providing state of the art mobile and data services to its customers in AJ&K.

SCO has also enhanced customer care by establishing a new call centre to provide even better services to its customers.

Just in case you are wondering, SCO’s earlier network was outdated and it was not possible for the operator to offer 3G or 4G services on the network. Now, with upgraded core, SCO will only have to convert its cell sites to 3G to start offering advanced data services.

DG SCO Major General Amir Azeem Bajwa said that Azad Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan are hard areas and provision of services in these areas isn’t easy. He said SCO is the only network that is offering services to its consumers on nominal charges.

In reply to a question, he said that they didn’t stop anyone from working and private companies have more towers than SCO in Muzaffarabad. He said they even support private companies in needs.-Online
