Zong Launches Youth Specific Offering: Circle
Zong launched a youth brand – Circle – with the tagline “Hamesha Together”. Zong claims to be offering the best rates for the youth. Zong said that the tagline “Hamesha Together” reflects the concept of how important it is for youth to be able to connect and stay in touch with their circle of friends, in order to amplify their life experiences.
Like any other brand, Zong says that it did all the intensive research and testing studies during past year before the launch of Circle.
Sajid Mehmood, Chief Commercial Officer of ZONG, while commenting on the launch of new brand said:

Call and SMS rates are quite competitive. Not the best in some cases (base tariff for off-net, on-net), but off-net and off-net FNF rates are amazing for Circle Club members.
Circle bundles are impressive too. Their daily voice bundle is probably the industry best. It offers sufficient voice minutes, SMS and MMS to meet all your communicate doze for a day; that too in just Rs. 5 per day.
Brand’s look and feel is exiting and moving. However, its strange – probably coincidental – that Circle is also using Yellow color, which was recently used by Ufone for Uth Pack, its Youth brand.
