Zong Ends Unlimited Calls on LBC Packages

By  | 30, Aug 2011 | 34 Comments



Zong, the king of Location Based Charging, has decided to abandon unlimited calls for LBC package holders by putting a fair usage policy on utilization of daily free minutes.

Zong remained most successful amongst all local operators in capitalizing the location based charging. This is evident from the fact that Zong registered record number of sales in last 12 months or so – (arguably) over the shoulders of these LBC offerings.

However, now Zong has decided to cap the unlimited calls by limiting the quota for daily usage. Read on to know the details:

Fair Usage Policy for LBC Packages:

All those Zong customers, availing LBC package for any city (Including Lahore, Karachi or any other city)

  • Now free on-net calls for LBC Package are not unlimited
  • 180 free on-net minutes will be given every day
  • After first 180 free minutes, each call will be charged at 10 paisa per minute

Even after this cap, it’s fairly a useful package – given that daily charges for LBC offering are just Rs. 7 plus tax. But the joy of unlimited calling will definitely be missed.

      What a REAL Mature Customer “REALLY” Needs for Remaining “LOYAL” to a Mobile Phone Company? The Customer needs:- 1. FULL COVERAGE in all AREAS of Country without having to change his/ her SIM due to non-availability of NetWork. 2. EASY CONNECTIVITY without having to dial again and again because of busy or overloaded lines. 3. CLARITY OF VOICE without having to shout loudly or repeating his/ her words again and again. 4. REASONABLE CALL CHARGING SYSTEM as only cheap rates/ call packages without the above three (3) prerequisites Can Not keep a Real Mature Customer loyal to a Mobile phone company (Excluding those college boys/ Girls who need to talk for hours with their Boy/ Girl friends).

      lol, any A class network in pakistan?

  • Echo. . . .

    I’ve seen people making calls every time using this offer, Having charger and handsfree at the same time, Which is also not good for network. And many people misuse this service. Making obnoxious or fraudlant calls. Good move zong but their goal was to achieve a large number of subscribers, that they have done. And now the addicted customers will call on helpline and be giving their time wasting feedback and suggestions and disturbing the parameters of poor CRS’s working in call center. Like ATT. . . Pakistani Customer is always wrong, they can never be pleased.

      Only long term solution is QoS.

    Something is better then nothing. Rs 7 per day is enough for 180 minutes & if we need more there is 10 paisa not bad.. I am totally agree with Zong Move

  • http://nadeem.pk Nadeem

    even though daily usage is capped, it still is fair enough. 180 minutes daily, that is too much if you really are a person who is living a normal life.

  • bahadur ali ramejo

  • Rafay

    They should just remove the daily charges and make on- net calls for 10p/ min.

    This is a shame, just one day before the celebrations of EID. Zong gives up shattering the trust of its users.

    Zong ka Dhong Khatam!!!!! I feel sorry for Zong customers… :’(

  • Haris

    180 mins are enough but it will be better if they increase some minutes as there are many users who uses this packing for talking all night and normal use in the day. 300 Minutes will be best

  • Asad
