Mobile Embrace Limited Expands International Direct Carrier Billing into Pakistan Through Agreement with Telenor Pakistan

Mobile Embrace Limited announced that it continues to rapidly expand its international Direct Carrier Billing (DCB) operations into Pakistan through a new agreement with Telenor Pakistan. This is a significant development for MBE and represents a large market opportunity. The agreement, which has been secured through the company's global framework agreement with Telenor, brings to Telenor Pakistan's circa 38 million subscribers, mobile-optimized products and services across a range of verticals with the ability to pay with the convenience of DCB. Customer acquisition, management, and billing is being undertaken by MBE's integrated digital marketing and carrier billing infrastructure. A significant proportion of Telenor's subscriber base is in emerging markets, where DCB has more penetration given that credit card penetration is low. As such, the smartphone is becoming the principle payment method for digital products and services as DCB can be used by anyone with a mobile phone or mobile-connected tablet.
