Afghan Wireless: Afghanistan’s First Mobile Communications Company:
Afghan Wireless is Afghanistan’s first wireless communications company. When we began operations in 2002, we founded Afghanistan’s mobile communications industry by being the first enterprise to offer cell phone service to Afghan consumers and businesses. For well over a decade, Afghan Wireless has driven the rapid growth of our nation’s communications market, through its innovative development and deployment of global-class High-Definition (HD) Voice Communications, Internet, Data and Mobile Payments Services. More than 6,000 people work for Afghan Wireless, and our Company is directly responsible for the creation of 100,000 jobs throughout Afghanistan.
Our Company was founded in 2002, by Dr. Ehsanollah Bayat, the renown Afghan business leader and the Chairman of The Bayat Group (www.bayat-group.com), Afghanistan’s most prominent diversified services company, comprising Media and Telecommunications (Afghan Wireless, Ariana TV and Radio), Energy (Bayat Energy), Construction, Security and Logistics Enterprises.
Afghan Wireless is a joint venture between the Bayat Group (80%) and Afghan Ministry of Communications (20%). Together, The Bayat Group and The Government of Afghanistan have championed the growth and success of Afghanistan’s telecommunications industry.
