    Speeds will not be much high as being anticipated…! Mark my words.

    • ahmiq

      512 Kbps and 1mbps are fair enough.

      • MJ

        Guys dont be foolish this 512Kbps is already available on 2G in Pakistan i have tested it.

        • ahmiq

          Dear MJ,

          2G Technology:

          With GPRS (General Packet Radio Service), you have a theoretical transfer speed of max. 50 Kbps (40 Kbps in practice).

          With EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution), you have a theoretical transfer speed of max. 250 Kbps (150 Kbps in practice).

          • Bilal Iqbal

            272 basically with all 8 time slots… but it is much slower.

    • Osama

      Agreed with you…. because now those countries which use 3G they transfer on 4G LTE and there are optimum chances that speed will never go down.. so just wait and watch what happen…..

  • Omair Ahmed

    I do hope they (leeches- blood sucking M..) do not include term “Only 3G (CDMA/FDD/MIMO) shall be used. HSPA+ (LTE or other than as mentioned in 3G radios) shall not be used.”.. but I am just hoping against the hope :(

    • smarty

      you’re right, but in policy directive of MOIT it is mentioned that this license will include 4G/LTE.

      • Bilal Iqbal

        It is for next generation..

  • 1000 billion is one trillion aamir :-) so heard it first time. I guess intention was to make the numeric portion of title more healthy or bulky. Other option was $10 billion.

  • ch irfan

    jo companies (ptcl evo, wi-tribe, qubee, wateen, ) already 3g services use kar rahe hain wo 4glte ka licence hasal kare gi. agar ki visiters ke pass koi news hai tu share kare please.

  • zain

    dear all. i have strong reasons to say that even 2G is in danger

    • Farzan

      care to explain?

    • Suhayb Taher

      You are right zain.. next 2 years… We will be in stone age again.. !!! Thanks to “Pak-Cheen Dosti” & “Chinese equipment” :D !!!

  • irfan

    yan palay kowi kam seedha hy jo ye ho ga 3g mege……

  • Fenn

    With the launching of 3G or any higher technology, cyber crime wing must get fully equipped and active because we have millions of evil geniuses.

  • bluedotpk

    umm let’s see that’s why i bought PTCL share’s ;-)

    • faizy

      buying the shares at this time wasnt a good idea……
      ptcl gonna face severe competition with telcos, hence it would find hard time maintaining its broadband customer line……

  • Osama

    Pakistan – without 3G – was left with PTCL’s aging copper media to cope with broadband needs of the country. WiMAX operators couldn’t fill the gap while EvDO technology isn’t smooth enough to entirely replace the fixed broadband technology.

    Buttttt…….. NAYATEL is the BEST alternate in region because they provide what they promise…… PTCL Down down down

    • Shumaila

      Nayatel should also be launched in lahore and karachi region

  • pyari

    the only thing I’ve found interesting in whole this 3g thing is that when it’s finally launched and all-praised and worn out we can read some cheesy articles or probably write some all whining about the poor quality, what with comparing graphs and snide comments ^^

    • Nabeel

      pyari, mere bhi yehi khyalat hain. give me your number and we will discuss it fruther.

      • XYZ

    Well, first let it roll-out for public then we see how it will impact our country

  • Shumaila

    I hope telecos will make affordable 3G packages with really good volume, otherwise no will buy 3G services

  • Tam

    Anyhow “some thing is better than nothing”

  • Nabeel

    more networks in the country, more radiation in the atmosphere, more electric waves in the air, more chances of brain cancer

    • Shahid Saleem

      If that were the case, people would be dropping dead of brain cancer in europe (lots of 3g networks). But, they are not! So explain.

      • Nabeel

        bhai Science kahti he, main nahi. although it is not completely proven but research is going on in the field.
        3G is maximum 10 years old and cancer affects slowly i.e. like in 20-30 years. Lets wait some more years and see the increase in brain cancer and skin diseases in Europe.

        I am just curious k log 3G ko kese istemal karain ge? can you share your plans. Everyone please share their plans k 3G agr a gya to wo apne smartyphone se us ko kese use karain ge in a beter way except faster browsing.. kuch na kuch to socha ho ga interested logo’n ne?

        • Shahid Saleem

          Oh what a joke. WHAT A JOKE YOU ARE.

          Science does not “say” anything until it has proof. Until then, it is hypothesis. 3G is no different from GSM, just different frequencies. and GSM is over 20 years old now.

          Other networks (AMPS, CDMA) have been around for at least that long, maybe longer. AMPS I think almost 40 years.

          So where is your brain cancer???? Where is your skin diseases???

          And in my case, I will use it just for faster browsing on my phone when I do not have wifi access. I generally need it when I am in a store and I want to check if something I want to buy (reviews, things like that).

          • Nabeel

            Thanks for commenting/criticising, whatever. I will correct my information regarding that but by mentioning Science I said that “bhai Science kahti he, main nahi. although it is not completely proven but research is going on in the field.”.

            Anyways. I got at least one planned usage of 3G by public (faster browsing while buying things). Anyone else will share his/her views?

            • Shahid Saleem

              Regardless, there is no evidence to support your opinion.

            • Opinionated

              “faster browsing while buying things”. Yar I have had a long laungh. Well said.

    • Bilal Iqbal

      Same cell sites with advance machinery will be working.nothing more…

    • Asad

      Molvi saab, Khuda ka khoof karain.
      Ap already thousands of radiations mai saans lai rahai hain. Agar iska test karna hai tu apna radio open karo. Sari FM, AM, SW1 SW2 SW3 bands , TV bands, satellite footprints directly on earth and mobile reflected microwaves freq already hain. AND THIS 3G and 2G will be nearby already cellular bands.

  • Bilal

    a positive step for boosting the country economy and uplift in the field of science and technology….3G is giving many aspects
