Purpose – This study explores the factors of telecom branding in Pakistan. Design/methodology/approach – Survey methodology was used to collect the data and atotal of 238 mobile phone users were interviewed for their telecom brand preferences. Findings – Exploratory factor analyses and cross tabulations were used to measure theresults, four major antecedents were extracted, Brand Association, Brand Premium, Brand Communication and Brand Loyalty. Cross tabs show wider differences in male and female customers for their perceptions towards bases of telecom branding. Secondly three factorswere identified as shaping the telecom branding i.e. Network coverage, Value added services and Pricing strategies while in subsequent quests value added services were emerged as major factor for retaining consumer mindset for telecom branding.Research limitations/implications – A few strengths of social research; the universal use of self-reporting questionnaires, and use of students in the research process, which make the process robust and economically feasible, are actually highly criticised in different nonacademic quarters.Practical implications – The findings point to various implications for practicing managers especially those who are responsible for segmentation, targeting and positioning theirservices. Originality/value – Although there are many studies on brand preferences; research on telecom brand antecedents is very limited. This research adds significant value by dissemination of knowledge on the subject area.
