      I rally hated those caps on data, until and unless they are not gonna ease them, I am not gonna use 3G, though I was too excited to get it.

      • Fakhre Alam

        30Gb is minimum i would expect with 1200-1500rs per month and 2mbps atleast . we have to wait atleast one year more

        • Bilal Iqbal

          ha ha ha.. evo hi use kro.. yai 3G hy. sari dunya mai qatron k hisab sy milti hy.. very reasonable packages are being offered.. no one in the world has Unlimited data plan for 3G/4G unless he would be a technician in lab for testing. lol…

          • Fakhre Alam

            well in that case i guess u haven’t been outside pakistan for years now or never been to other countries. my friend in australia is using 1Gb/day @ 1 AU $

            • Bilal Iqbal

              my cousin also there using 4G with 10 GB monthly limit along with voice and international SMS plan of 100 US $…
              i dont know which plan your friend is using.. ask him to share detail.. which can be verified from internet… :)

                  you mean 8GB in about 1,500/- PKR @ 1MB speed? Nice. And Ufone is offering just 3GB in same price, same speed.

                  • Bilal Iqbal

                    over all there is similarity in market.. but 8 GB package is good and i hope it would happen here after introduction of other operators in market…

            • Bilal Iqbal

              The top-priced plans offer unlimited calls and texts, but no provider offers more than 3GB of data per month on a month-to-month plan other than Vodafone’s top-priced Red plan, which includes 5GB.

              this is about australian 4G monthly packages… whereas higher packages are for 24 month plans…

              • Fakhre Alam

                i will ask him . there are many operators in australia .

            • Guest

              check this out.. pricing and volume…

      • naeemafzal

        Average spending for easy use of internet on the go (3G/4G) in developed countries is 50$.

    • Ahmad Khan Sabri

      Madad Bhai konsa competition. Yes sab milay huay hotay hain. agar aik company 10 Paisay call connect charges barhati hay to within 10 days all 5 companies bhi theek utnay hi paisay barhaha deti hain.

  • Fakhre Alam

    only if they give good packages

  • Safaidsuch

    if they offer free service and Mobile snatching cases does not go with current pace this might be achieved..!!

    • http://www.infopakistan.pk/ Khurram ShahzAd

      How?

      • safaidsuch

        3g4g tech is levish not need. The factor that effects the usage is the purchasing power. Pakistan is at No.143 by income per person and few countries are lower to us so few can afford monthly 1500 non sharing internet. Pakistan has limited technology literate people who be able to handle 3g4g so we have to work seriously towards education. Now keeping a smartphone that costs you around 20k is a life threat, In karachi Islamabad and Rawalpindi and is increasing day by day, Because snatching is common here, if this countinous people will stop carring expensive handsets and will start using 1000 rs handset so companies should provide insurance coverage for robbed or stolen smartphones.

        • rashid

          True but zong will definitely introduce 5k 4g fone. They did it in pas like rs 1 handset. Infact i got that rs 1 handset after 30 minutes w8 in line

        • Bilal Iqbal

          snatching and crime rate in New York is way more than many of our cities but what happens at all.. people do choose advancement.. let’s go few years back when a cell phone with Jazz sim was as impressive as Samsung 5S with Galaxy Gear now a days.. but what happend after that.. every thing went usual… and majority of population has a handset …
          similarly smartphone prices will come down or their low end variants will be introduced to capture markets like Pakistan.. and people will opt these technologies.. previously there was no 3G and no awareness for it .. people like us using WiFi are of different class but majority of people will go for these to get benifits…

          • Shahid Saleem

            I am certain New York crime is less than Karachi. Karachi is in the worldwide top ten cities of crime, New York is not anywhere near that.

            • Bilal Iqbal

              i meant street crimes about which safaidsuch was talking … where as the list of most dangereous cities in the world include much more than that like killing etc.

              it was just to illustrate the affect of street crimes over adoption rate of technology like this…

            • shahid

              Karachi is not in the top 50 most criminal cities according to this data

              http://www.businessinsider.com/most-dangerous-cities-in-the-world-2012-10?op=1

              And according to this data Karachi is not even in the top hundred dangerous cities

              http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/neighborhoods/crime-rates/top100dangerous/

              and according to this Wikipedia list which is about murder rate karachi is not in the top 50

              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_by_murder_rate

              Now please stop following local media reports who exaggerate things to sell their news. yes situation is not Good in karachi it is bed but it is much much better than what our media show us. And before making a statement first study your statements, next time of course

            • shahid

              This is another data from a different source Karachi or any Pakistani city is not there in the top 50 i wonder how did you claim that Karachi is top ten ?????? or were just firing in the air

              http://www.policymic.com/articles/75085/the-50-most-deadly-cities-in-the-world

              And here is forum and list of 50 cities people are talking about these cities Karachi is not even their i am amazed where did you find Karachi in top ten ? i can not find it, take a look plz.in this forum a guy is defending USA cities that they should not be that high up in the list. plz have a look and learn to study

              http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/general/303432-the-50-most-dangerous-cities-in-the-world

            • shahid

              oh yes i have found Karachi in top the here in one list but bad news for you it is not about crime or murder rate it is bout worst place to live because of economy, pollution etc. have a look here is it

              http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/propertypicturegalleries/9478023/The-worlds-10-worst-cities-to-live-in.html?frame=2311074

              • Shahid Saleem

                articles titled: “10 Most Violent Cities in The World – WondersList”
                “Extreme World: Karachi one of the most violent cities in the world”

                etc.

                but when comparing new york to karachi, you can just look at official statistics. in new york: under 10,000 mobiles snatched in 2013. in sind, according to CPLC, over 10,000 (and we know about under-reporting here because police won’t register case). Similarly for violence: much more violence in karachi.

                • shahid

                  you are again firing in the air back up your argument by providing facts or just say that you want Karachi to be in the top ten. where is the link to what you are claiming ? any other data ?
                  i have provided you data from 6 or 7 different sources including uk’s telegraph and usa’s guardian. if you want i can provide more… this wrong portrayal of Pakistan and its cites by its media and some locals is what angers me although i do not comment but when i see such thing i can not stop my self from commenting.so i will keep quite now

                • shahid

                  their are some Indian sites whom does portray Pakistan and its cites violent their real purpose is just propaganda, but they can not back up their claims by providing legitimate sources, what i have provided are all legitimate sources monitored by international transparent authorities.

                  • Shahid Saleem

                    google for ”

                    Karachi 2013: The deadliest year of all” article on tribune site. it not only has link to official Sindh police statistics, but also mobile snatching statistics for Karachi only.

                    Again keep in mind how useless the police are at registering FIR for things like mobile snatching. They don’t want to do it, so people have to rely on CPLC, and not all snatched mobiles are reported. Whereas in NY the police are not as useless.

                • shahid

                  you are comparing new york the city with karachi the city or comparing new york the state with sindh the state or province because 100000 mobile snathes in 2013 were in new york the city not new york the state, so do not compare a city with a state compare new york city with jush karachi not sindh

    Except ufone none have even announced the packages yet, despite the fact that all of them claim that 3g is commercially launched.

    • Bilal Iqbal

    • poonam

  • Abdi

    Boht Mushkil hai 3G Pure Mulk mein Chal jaye kyu k 70% Pakistani Anparh hai aur har kisi k Pas Android Set Nahi hota aur jo Network 3G Service Keh rahe hai Asal mein Woh 2G Speed Denge, is Mulk mein Awam ko Lotna Boht Aasan hai Kyu k Apne Haq k liye Yaha Koi Khada Nahi hota is liye toh Aaj Mulk ka yeh Hal hai.. Think About it..

  • Ali Asghar

    As Karachi Citizen, I am really excited to use the 3G/4G services, but here we won’t be able to use it outside home and Offices, Thanks to the failed Sindh Government, Once you take out your cellphone in the streets, you are on the verge of facing snatching of your Phone, and 3G services comes handy of course when you’re at outdoors, no point of using it in homes/offices when there’s Wi-Fi services available, this is getting immensely unbearable for me, Despite we are provided absolute zero security of our property by Sindh Government, They have charged 19.5% FED, and we pay it regularly, I am really fed-up, now Ramadan is nearing rapidly, and mobile snatching increases by 10 times higher ratio, wth we can do with these 3G services? I am saying this because just today, My Galaxy S2 has been snatched, so you can expect anyone with this mishap, writing such comments, believe me, With the help of Karachi police and support from higher placed Government officials, Thieves are making Karachi dangerous than Mombasa (Kenya), have a wonderful 3G experience Karachities!

  • Karim

    Aik baat koe Bhai samjha sakta hai mujy? companies ka maqsad paisa kamana hai, kya wo saste package de kar nai kamaa sakteen, QK is tarha numbers of customers increase hoo jain gae. Lekin ye loog Railways or GT road k food stops ki tarhaa itna mehnga bechte hain k bas aik hi customer se sari kamai karni hai ye nai sochte k mehnge ki waja se kitne hi aise hai jo nai buy karte.

  • http://www.segmentnext.com/ Saqib Mansoor

    I doubt those numbers will be achievable in the first two years. Might be three at least.

  • Atif Sattar

    upto world Standard ? really ? when you talk about service they have been offering in city like Lahore you have to go out door to make a call .. I will admit i have not Tested 3G much but two or tree days i use . i found it unstable speed even in full coverage area.. Hopefully that will improve once they all will start commercial service but my reading is they are not at pare with world standards even with 2G call services..

  • Abbas

    telenor will commercialy launch 3g on 1st june 2014. just got a msg from telenor that free 3g will expire on 31st may 2014

    زونگ کی طرف سے 22 ہزار روپے میں سمارٹ فون اور پورے سال کے لیئے مفت انٹڑنیٹ کی پیشکش خاصی کشش رکھتی ہے۔ تقریبا دو ہزار روپے ماہانہ میں انٹرنیٹ ملے اور فون بھی تو اور کیا چاہیئے؟ امید ہے کہ دوسری کمپنیاں بھی اسی قسم کی پیشکش کریں گی۔
