DG's Message

Maj Gen Muhammad Shahid Siddeeq

Keeping up the pace with ever-changing telecommunication trends remains the biggest challenge of our time. And it becomes even bigger when it comes to connecting some of the most far flung and highly treacherous areas of the land such as Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K) and Gilgit-Baltistan(GB) with the rest of the world. By the ultimate grace of Almighty and utmost dedication and commitment of our workforce, SCO has not only fulfilled the challenge successfully but also exceeded far beyond than what it was expected to deliver.

It is a matter of great satisfaction for us that since its establishment SCO’s journey has been marked with unparalleled successes and today it takes lead in the advancement of telecommunications in remotest parts of AJ&K and GB. SCO now proudly claims to have the most advanced 3G/4G network in Pakistan, capable of providing state-of-the-art mobile and data services to its valued customers.

Pak-China OFC Project with its diverse strategic and socio-economic dimensions has provided a firm pedestal onto which future ICT developments in remote regions of Pakistan and along CPEC corridor can be built. I can say with confidence that SCO with its vast experience, expertise and after successful completion of Pak-China OFC project in a record time of less than 2 years is ideally suited to play further role in CPEC by leading all developments in ICT realm.

I re-affirm the commitment of my organization that we shall remain dedicated in pursuing sacred task of serving the unserved and underserved population of AJ&K and GB with latest telecom and IT services at their doorsteps.

May Allah Almighty guide us all in our sincere endeavors “Ameen”.
