Mobile phone use in Pakistan has increased significantly in recent years. There are several reasons for this increase. One reason is that the price of mobile phones has come down. In the past, only the wealthy could afford mobile phones. But now, even people on low incomes can afford them.

Another reason is that the coverage of mobile phone networks has improved. In the past, there were many areas of Pakistan where there was no mobile phone coverage. But now, thanks to the expansion of mobile phone networks, coverage is much better.
