Committed to its vision of empowering societies and connecting people to what matters most to them, Telenor Pakistan has collaborated with Ola Doc, a startup of Telenor Velocity’s 7th cohort. Through this, 9 million MyTelenor App users will be able to avail up to 20% discount on doctor’s appointments made through Ola Doc.
