Pakistan’s most advanced internet platform VEON was launched in the country by VEON Limited, with Jazz as its first telco partner.

Unveiled at an event in Lahore, VEON aims to radically redefine the personal internet experience in the country by offering diverse services to its subscribers completely revolutionizing the digital landscape of the country and how Pakistanis communicate.

VEON offers mobile messaging app in five markets, including Pakistan

Subscribers will avail unparalleled services offered by VEON even when they are out of balance.

It simply uses your phone’s mobile network or Wi-Fi (where available) to let you call, chat, send pictures and videos for free, so you don’t have to pay for every message or call.

The launch of VEON marks a new era of connectivity for the country, which allows users to experience contextualized, personalized internet experiences and opportunities, enabling them to access information and services and engage with the world.

“I am proud to announce Jazz, as the first telco partner of VEON, supporting a complete digital ecosystem. We have consistently strived to invest in innovative technologies that would deeply impact the lives of millions of people and enhance the digital economy of Pakistan,” according to Aamir Ibrahim, Jazz’s Chief Executive Officer.

The platform will help develop a complete internet eco-system in the country and facilitate smartphone adoption in Pakistan, in addition to radically increasing Internet adoption.

Christopher Schlaffer, VEON’s Chief Commercial & Digital Officer while speaking on the occasion said, “We are proud to announce the launch of VEON, a most unique and innovative platform that holds the answer to all our communication needs.”

Infrastructure igniting innovation

“From calls to messages, personalized content for our users, to offers and deals, mobile wallet and contextual internet services, VEON holds the power to radically alter consumer behaviour vis-à-vis mobile communication.”
