    yaar three 3G licence hain for auction, which operator do u think wont be having/qualifying for 3G i think it would be warid and telenor.
    In my opinion Mobilink, Ufone and zong will put all Egg on one basket to get 3g licence

    • JK

      Ufone??? Are you joking? Ufone parent have pending PTCL dues, GSM license renewal. And on top of that this 3G is big burden for them.

      • http://ptclevosharing.blogspot.com/ Muhammad Anas

        Etisalat has no dues to pay!

      • http://iShareArena.com/ M.Aswad Mehtab

        Ufone is going big …

      • Bilal Iqbal

        Ufone has already upgraded its network for 3G.. they spent for bidding not testing.. Telenor would go for 3G/4G too…warid never think about it… Mobilnk and Zong would fight.. let’s see…

        • jahanzeb

          wo tou telenor ka bhi hai. read the recent interviews, telenor executives are proudly boasting that their network is fully ready for 3G as well as 4G.

          in my view, mobilink, telenor and ufone will get #G licences
          4G licences will go to telenore and mobilink

          • Bilal Iqbal

            me also think so but ptcl would love to have 4g in the name of ufone…they are testing 4g/LTE since last yeear…
            further let’s see…

      • Kashif Munir

        this is too big of an opportunity for ufone to back out.

    • Muhammad

      Telenor Pakistan will be the 1st network in PK to launch 4G first of all. They’ve got stuff ready for it already.

      • test

        They are internally thinking that price is too high so might only go for 3G as they are too cost centric and that why chooses most worst ZTE.

  • test

    Also STC, Qatar and Turkish telecom are going to bid and one new enter-net is expected

    • Pakistani

      Wi-Tribe is Qatari company seems to interested…

  • Pakistani

    one 4G is reserve for PTCL

  • Kaswani

    LOL on 4G they only allowing 2mbps data rate and on 3G just 512Kbps…one can surely imagine 2mbps bandwidth shared with 30million subscribers will get how much speed….simply pathetic speeds just like GPRS while they will be ripping off the comsumers with high price plans

    • MiDz

      LOL .. I wish 3G/4G bring good English reading skills :P .. Word ‘MINIMUM’ is used in above article. Which means Kam se Kam in Urdu …

      • http://ptclevosharing.blogspot.com/ Muhammad Anas

        hahahaaha! somethinhg should be there to complain about! That’s becoming our mentality now!

      • Osama

        yes you are right this is the starting speed for testing the services in many citites and after that there is the hope to speedup their connections…..

      • Ali

        hehehe … But I am sure we all will get this ‘MINIMUM’ only :) … Dont you know them ?

    • Waqas

      I think those speeds are for each person

    • tungi

      so i think we shud not hold the auction all together as it is goin to be a ‘rip off’.funny

    • http://iShareArena.com/ M.Aswad Mehtab

      these are minimum speed thresholds buddy .

    • Bilal Iqbal

      these are minimum standards my dear.. for your kind information.. by Definition “Broadband refers to a communication bandwidth of at least 256 kbit/s” but what are you getting these days, surely 2/4 Mbps.. in the same way “3G telecommunication networks support services that provide an information transfer rate of at least 200 kbit/s” but in reality they are quit high.. average speed of 3G would be 2Mbps and 4G would be 10 Mbps… hope for good
      (Source of definitions : Wikipedia)

      • Ali

        Things sound good at Wikipedia but in Pakistan ??? Get ready for minimum thresholds only :)

        • Bilal Iqbal

          i am in touch with some telecom guys involved in testing of 3G services and their feedback was good… that’s why i am hopeful for good…

    • Majid

      Mr Kaswani,

      I am really feeling shame on your reading and understanding skills, they Saying minimum speed which companies to must provide in any situation at any distance from towers in these specified cities or area Otherwise they must get fined from Govt. and any body can sue them for not providing that minimum speed they agreed for buying the license and keep this in mind maximum speed is not specified.

      With all the latest technology and the technology currently in the marked with HSDPA and HADPA+ which falls in 3G you get easily 8MBPS in high density areas and at low density you get 12MBPS and laughing.

      Well even companies tried to save mony they must deploy minimum of 2MBS for 3G to keep them on safe side for not to fall in Fine category.

      And 2MBS is as well average speed on 3G which you get if you are on ground floor, in tunnel, on moterway, etc in most of they Western Countries.

      I am in Australia and i do experience this i do get only 6MBPS on 3G on my iphone 5 if i am really close to mobile tower otherwise i get 2MBPS and 3MBPS average and which is pretty good because i dont see any hicups on sending emails, messaging making VOIP calls or even vedio calls and vedio streaming i do use all these things.

      So donot hype every thing and just wellcome this good thing.

  • girlpowder

    ya now we are gonna towards 3g & 4g, pakistan 3g speed will 5.1 or less then 4.5 mbps and 4g speed will 20mbps , 3g download speed will 500 or upto 550kbps and 4g downld speed will 2mbps…and pakgs on 3g 10GB 1500rs unlmtd will 2500rs or 3000rs..on 4g pakgs will start 2500rs 20GB 3500RS 30GB and unlmtd will 5000 or 5600rs..that,s not govt news it,s ma hupoths..search other country 3g and 4g packages..

    • Bilal Iqbal

      RIP in English along with 3G and 4G… :p

  • girlpowder

    kaswani it,s only data rates of download and upload speed not such a speed of 3g and 4g…take care

  • Evo Wingle User

    Evo Wingle 9.3 is dead slow now for the last 10+ days giving only (0.3Mbps). PTCL officials say it is because they are upgrading and moving to 3G. They say I am not alone, the entire Karachi is suffering. Is it true ? who else is suffering dead-slow speed ?

    • umair

      Its working fine in islamabad i am getting 3Mb+ speed

    • Furqan

      CHECK you limit you have exeeded 50 gb of download limit this will reset on 1st of the coming month.

      • Ali

        I have unlimited package i.e. 75GB and it was dead on 20GB.

    • Kashif

      I am also stuck at 0.2-0.3Mbps for the past 2 weeks.

      • Jaguar

        Well that’s strange, I am getting ~2.8Mbps on my evo 3G! ;-)

        • Bilal Iqbal

          me too….

    • Abdul Akbar

      In Rawalpinidi…Getting around 0.2Mbps to 0.8Mbps…Very slow from last one week.

    • Ali

      im facing this same issue. hating them to the core

    • Hassan Tariq

      Same here bro:(

    • Ali

      Well I have unlimited package which is 75GB and it is dead since I hardly used 20GB. It dropped to 1Mbps, then 0.3Mbps and now since yesterday I am hardly able to open any website (just like old fashioned dial-ups). Connection is also not stable and in the control panel it shows switching between 2G and 3G which indicates that there must be something going on.

      By the way I am in Karachi and they say more than 80% users in Karachi are suffering. So I want to verify it. Are you with me ?

  • http://ptclevosharing.blogspot.com/ Muhammad Anas

    I’m afraid by this “Final round of auction – if required — will happen on April 7th, 2014″

  • FHM

    Ufone still offers best data speed on 2G network. so they are expected to perform even better in 3G.

  • Muhammad Aamir

    It’s a bad idea, we should need to move direct to 4G instead of 3G, but why it is important to get 3G before getting 4G?

    • http://iShareArena.com/ M.Aswad Mehtab

      due to lack of instruments and most importantly the user base , masses still don’t have 3G enable phones , who would use 4G from the word go ?

    • SHAHBAZ

      Already People of Pakistan have very less rate of Smartphone owning. So it will be useless to upgrade to 4G directly. You have to purchase 4G enabled phone to use that tech.

      • Muhammad Aamir

        hmm..!! you are right..!! then 4G should launch in some major cities of Pakistan.

    • Bilal Iqbal

      this is happening in whole world.. 4G is still in top countries with one or two providers.. thanks God we are getting some thing.. india still on 3g only

      • Muhammad Aamir

        LTE is a good choice, due its high speed..!!! I think it takes long time!

  • Amir

    Thank God, good signs are appearing :-)

  • Furqan

    do this auction will increase speed of 3g evo nitro or just only for Mobile operators

    • Kashif

      3G Evo is a different technology than 3G/4G offered via GSM companies. EVO or rather EVDO is for CDMA cellular providers such as PTCL/Worldcall etc BTW PTCL is yet to release its 4G service which I suggest they are waiting for the perfect time.

      • Ali

        But once the Back-Bone connections are upgraded to handle mobile data downloads, these devices will automatically get good bandwidth. I also think that DSL speed will also be increased for users otherwise everyone will use 3G/4G enabled wireless devices or use mobile internet.

        • Bilal Iqbal

          they are not fool my dear.. we get for which we pay.. no extra in this world..

        • Jawad

          ya i am thinking too that DSL speed will increased after 3g

  • http://about.me/aaqil Aaqil Mahmood

    agar old networks he rahay to awam phir lut’ti rahay ge. new operators agar old operators sath na millay to shayad competition wali faza dobara wapis ajayay.

  • Waqas Aslam

    Very high priced policy for auction where there are loadhshedding, security issues…draining juice out of this highly tax paid industry……
    when will Govt facilitate industry like that of India?
    Poor electricity conditions, security concerns, network shut down on events and still Govt wants 25*5= 125bn PKR from 5 licenses.
    Truly rivalry steps for telecom industry

    • najam

      Sir, why dont these operators exit if they are so oppressed? What about stealing billions from national exchequer? and tax evasion? and causing insecurity in the country? Did govt. ask them to sell sims like sadkay ka gosht? These companies should stop playing innocent and be a man. Yes, in international law, companies are considered persons.

  • PeeDroid MiNi L100

    BC Abi 3G/4G Aaya Nahi Aur Logon Ki BQwas Shooro.. Slow Speed, Khali 4G Lain..
    Chavlan Jayan Na Hoon Te!!

  • nomi

    Does 4G means 4G LTE ??? or HSDPA ?

    • SHAHBAZ

      LTE

    • Bilal Iqbal

      HSPA for 3G. HSPA+ for 3.5G and LTE for 4G…

  • Ali

    Bhai ko mujhay yeh to batao plzzzzz kay what happened to PTCL internet ? I am using Evo Wingle 9.3 but it is now working like old age dial-up. I used to get way more than 700+KB download speed in the night but now its almost dead.

    They say they are switching/upgrading 3G and more than 80% users are suffering. They do not give any time frame. Am I alone or you are also facing the same issue?

  • Ahmed

    I think its price ll be Rs. 100/1gb,
    not good for heavy user, :-(

  • Shahzad Khan

    I didn’t come here to read the article.. I came here to ask why is my artwork used here without permission?

  • Muhammad Khan

    i just hope ALLAH Gives this government enough courage to go through with the process. Countries like South Korea and the UK are already forming partnerships with India and others to launch 5G by 2020, so we, if not by then, need to be at a steady level with 4G LTE by the time everybody shifts to the next big thing

  • Imran Hassan

    one thing is for sure, all major mobile operators are going to purse the 3G & 4G licences.

  • Muhammad Khan

    PTA is doing a great job at least we have to admire this….in the country where processes take years to bring the reality,PTA did it in shorter span of time..

  • Jawad

    The reports from reuters is totally baseless.. even on base price, 3/4G will fetch more than 1.3B US$.. This will be a productive auction
