Prior to that, he graduated from MUET Jamshoro with a bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering.
After the opening of the telecom sector in Pakistan in the early 2000s it was the need of the day that carrier-neutral or business-neutral telecom infrastructure companies may be made available to consumer telecom operators. These telecom infrastructure companies can provide telecom infrastructures to the newly formed entrants in the business or the incumbents and they can acquire optical fiber connectivity as well as telecom infrastructure from infra companies that are licensed by PTA and their sole purpose was to serve the telecom operators and not to approach the customers directly. This need was the inception of Global Connect Synergy and we are proudly serving the industry with our motto that we are the service providers to the service providers and we provide telecom facilities to the telecom operators with complete business neutrality as well as neutral carriers.
