dozen other telecommunication corporations, including Telenor Corps and China
Mobile Ltd. In addition to wire line operations, PTCL also provides fixed line
service through its countrywide CDMA based WLL (Wireless Local Loop)
network, under the VFone brand name and cellular service under Ufone brand
name. PTCL Group’s profit after tax was Rs.11.5 billion in year 2012 which was
36% higher compared to the profit achieved last year. Despite high inflation,
devaluation of Pakistani currency, increased prices of fuel and power, and salary
increments were main factors to increase the overall operating expenses by 7%

service over other emerging telecommunication companies. It has the largest
Copper infrastructure spread over every city, town and village of Pakistan with
over million installed lines. Suppose total revenue function of PTCL was
TR=500+750Q-0.5Q2 whereas total cost function was TC=6000+200Q+0.125Q2
for the year 2012. Further, quantity demanded and quantity supplied function for
the same year was Qd = 1200-200P and Qs = 120+400P respectively.
