  15. 15. Recommendations  Wateen needs innovative service offerings — currently it doesn’t even offer bundles or server which provides entertainment channels.  As wateen is using Warid towers so due to load of cellular services the the signals of wateen got weak. So they need to separate there towers so improve there performance.  The router provided by wateen should be of good quality. Or more than one router should be given by them so the signal problem should be resolved.
  16. 16.  People are not satisfied with the call centers and the customer service. The response from call centres should be positive and valid which results in satisfied customers.  For its success Wateen will have to do more than just depend upon its wireless connectivity feature.
  17. 17. Conclusion  Overall Wateen still behaves as a monopoly so it has to change its attitude.  Wateen needs to invest in infrastructure (more routers etc) to solve connectivity problems.  Needs to train its customer service representatives.  At a minimum, avoiding billing errors and providing competent and courteous service to its customers is essential if Wateen wants to show that it is transforming itself to a competitive company which cares for its customers.
