Ufone Introduces New UrEDGE GPRS Packages

Ufone has revised its GPRS/EDGE packages for its prepaid customers. Now Ufone users can subscribe for three available packages, depending on their usage to enjoy in-expensive GPRS for their internet needs while on the go.

Procedure is simple, you subscribe to one of three available packages, which will deduct balance from your account according to package and you will be allotted with certain amount of data limit, again according to package. You can use this data with-in a certain time.

The good thing is that you can subscribe again to any package if you use exceed your data limit. By the way, in case your data limit is over, and you are still using GPRS then you will be charged at standard rates, which are Rs. 15 plus tax per 1 MB. So make sure that you have an eye on remaining data limit. To check remaining data package volume & expiry date you can send USSD command to *706# or call 706.

This treat is for prepaid users only, postpaid users, please keep on paying high bills and over charges and keep missing the luxury….!

    WTF! they call it unlimited and it has a 1.5 GB limit?

    • shahid786imran

      This is drama

  • Ahsan

    @Saad Ibrahim, I agree with you.

  • Junaid

    My friend- Have you evenr used 1.5 GB on your phone :) in a month. Also EDGE is not comparable to Wimax or DSL in terms of capacity and should not be regarded in the same category

    • Ubaid Ur Rehman Khan

      What so ever they should not use word un limited, when they have limit …..

  • Ahmedij

    all companies have limited the data usage now

  • Mudassar

    Hi,

    I think ‘Subscription Charges’ are at the time of subscription and then You are charged with per MB price for every MB till you reach data limit for that package.

    So let say for UrEDGE 30 first time subscription fee is Rs 182/- and then You are charged Rs 5/- per MB till you reach 30MB limit right?

    Then it makes total cost for using 30MB internet: 182 + 150 = 332 ( not sure if Tax is inclusive or exclusive of this rate )
    But normally you are charged as: 30*15 = 450 + tax( i guess 84 ).
    Means you are going to save about 100 or more Rupees, not BAD but not impressive. And yes of course on 1.5GB package you are going to save lot more.

    But for heavy data down loaders I guess ZONG’s Rs 15/- per hour package is great, what you think ?

  • Anon

    @Mudassir – you have got it wrong. for 182 Rs you get the 30MB Free. The 5Rs / per MB is an explanation from ufone on how much does the package cost in terms of per MB as this is the metric that most users can actively relate to.
    So

    182 Rs = 30 MB X 5 RS/MB X TAX
    = 150RS X 21% TAX
    = 150RS + 32 RS TAX
    = 182 Rs

    I hope this was helpful :)

    • @Anon, thanks for solving the equation. I will try to narrate things more clearly in future.

      Regards

  • Mudassar

    oh thnx got it now.

    Now the package is Impressive i think ;)

  • Saad Ibrahim

    By Introducing such “unlimited” packages these companies are making it easy for Worldcall Evdo to penetrate in the market which only has real unlimited packages in the wireless market so far

  • mahmood

  • Tauseef

    These UrEdge packages are not “new”… as i have been using them for quite a few months now!!!

    • Tauseef

      Sorry i posted my comments without noticing the post date… appologies!!

  • Fakhre Alam

    1.5gb is very less for me. Every month i download more than 5gb via zong edge using nokia n73. Also for those who connect their mobiles to pc for internet 1.5gb is nothing. Ufone must give atleast 5gb limit

  • Talha

    It depends on areas. In some places zong is better in others ufone is better. But, zong lets u watch youtube videos whereas ufone doesn’t. I’m using ufone, it doesn’t work that well during day time, only after 12 at night i get as high as 20kbps. My brother uses zong and he gets more than 11kb the whole day.

  • Adeel

    hello every one,
    yarr, main ny ufone, telenor, zong and warid sab ka gprs use kiya hy,

    • wafa

  • Bilal Baloch

    im using zong 2gb internet in Quetta. At day time the maximum speed is almost 2 to 4 kb but after 12 am at night the speed rises to 5 kb. at night pages open quite well but at day time it is very slow.

  • Roohullah khattak

    i am using zong 2GB on my iPhone in Abbottabad.at day time average speed is 7-8 KB and at night after 2:00 am,it is 10-11 KB.During peak hours,say 5-11pm,speed drops down to 1-3 KB and at mid day from 12-04 pm,its 3-5KB.as iPhone web browser opens pages in larger size,usually i end with time out error while browsing.
    But with ufone,at least i am able to open web pages,which proves ufone speed is somewhat better than zong.
    also compare ufone 1.5 GB=PKR 604 and zong 2GB=PKR 239.
    i know the post is old but i may help googlers.
    Thanks

  • sherry
