WATERLOO, Ont. -- BlackBerry (TSX:BB) says it will remain operating in Pakistan after that country's government backed off from its request to gain access to the company's BES servers.
Marty Beard, chief operating officer of BlackBerry, wrote on the company's blog Thursday that the Waterloo, Ont.-based technology firm decided to stay in Pakistan once the government's decision was made.
BlackBerry previously said it would rather close its operations in Pakistan than accept that country's demands for "unfettered" access to its BES servers.
The company had been considering its options ahead of a Dec. 30 deadline.
