  • Baig Muhammad

    Assalam-o-allikum
    I to much thankfull of U Fone company wich have introduced us a latest infermation with a cheep price.
    End of all, I requested that plez inform us about the internet speed also.

    • @Baig Muhammad, speed thing is mentioned in the above article!

      • Omer

        @Aamir Attaa,
        Aamir, Do you have any idea that after 6 months, whether we can use the same Internet USB with other GSM network’d Internet or not?
        And, If we can use this USB with other GSM networks’ SIM, then whether we need to unlock this USB to be used with other GSM networks or not?
        Waiting for your reply impatiently!

        • @Omer, As per information that i Got, yes these devices can be used with other networks’ SIMs as well. Though i have not tested this.

          You may need to counter-check this before you purchase, if you have something similar in mind

      • Mubeen

        Dear read again there is wrote about speed
        the speed is 5 KBPS

  • Excellent article,

    You mentioned speed of 5 kbps, can you please mention what is the max cap i.e 256 or what else?
    further what about the disconnection problem, is the connection reliable and really always on?
    and can you mention the brand/model/make of edge modem they are giving?

    Thanks anyways!

    • Mubeen

      @Najam-us-Saquib,
      dear i not sure but i think the speed is only 50kb beacuae i called to ufone help they told me

  • Muhammad Zohair Chohan

    what about the speed they are telling like zong says we give you 128kbps connection? and there must be unlimited bandwidth after 6 months rather than UrEDGE packages . :-s

  • Zehf

    aray yar sab se better hai k aik market se EDGE stick lo woh sasti milay gi or mobilink ya zong jo behtar speed or service dey rahay hian woh use kro.
    5 month se mian use kar raha hoon EDGE stick main ne 6000 ki li thi or best chal rahi hai abhi tak with mobilink indigo connection. ufone per agar kisi or network ki sim chal rahi hai to is ki price sab se best hai. chup kar k le lo….
    or pehla note kar lo k apnay area mian check kar lena k EDGe service severice kaha ka receive ho rahi hai then purchase kro.

    • Omer

      @Zehf,
      Yar, Aap ne kon say Brand ki USB li thi Aur Konsi Jaga se?

  • pyare_bhiya

    Dears what is the probable speed with edge coverage? the speed in above article is 5 KBPS on GPRS what about EDGE covered ares!thanx

  • NAZEER AHMED

    ALL THINKS FOR UFONE

  • kashif Ali

    Tamam tarif Allah K ley He .

  • memz

    can we use in networking too?

    • @memz, you can use one of your LAN card to share internet coming into your system.

      I doubt it will be a good idea, by the way (Speed constraints)

  • memz

    n wts etz response in basement areaz becoz ufone didnt work properly in basement n es dis work proper thr?

    • @memz, Ofc speed will be low in less covered area… so be sure you use this with optimum coverage

      • would any body tell me that what is the configured speeding capacity of the USB Modem. SIM cards can varry the speed according to the sevice provider but the speed of connectivity of modem remains same. Please put some light on it.

        Faraz

  • natiq

    dear all,
    the thing to note is ufones edge stick is 6999 with six months free edge (where ever EDGE is available) GPRS is available in evry nook and corner that ufone covers in pakistan (4500 locations) mobilink does that in 81 cities only
    now for price and edge modem ufone offers the service at Rs.500/- (unlimited) along with 5 & 30 MB packages as per requirement when free contract expires which is also competible to every one that is providing the service.
    for edge ufone covers entire cities where ever edge coverage is available not like any other service provider which are area specific.
    so ufone is the way to go when it comes to edge modems.

  • Mumtaz

    Hey guys this is excellent , after much hesitation finaly got ufone usb , this is wonderful experience . I am getting average speed of downloadin 30 in lahore , i wil strongly recomend it to every on

    • Aaysha

      I wana purchase ufone usb bt im very cnfuse abt its speed. Can u suggest a suitable option of it to get rid 4m ths problm. Im facing difficulty in my stdy without internet.

  • Mumtaz

    Hey guys why are you confusing others. I got ufone usb in lahore.and this is wonderful experience , i m gettin downloading speed of 30kb on average and this is working perfectly .

  • Javed

    Hi All,

    First of all, to one of the queries above, it says on the Ufone website that other networks sims will not be functional on this USB device.

    Next, I am happy to see at least one real life example (Mumtaz) confirming its efficacy.

    Thirdly, I would like to ask that after six months, if I need to continue using high speed internet, how much will I have to pay? Will it be on a as-per-use basis? If so, then what will be the rates? Otherwise, if it will be unlimited use, then what will be the charges in this vase?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

  • natiq

    there are tree packages available two are download buckets and the other one is unlimited
    so you may use unlimited data for Rs. 500 excl of taxes

  • ufone customer

    FONE EDGE giving the download speed between 2-Kbps against their claim of 60-150 Kbps. While Upload speed is much more lower and its around less 2 Kbps against 20-50 Kbps. This speed is possible when I am getting 95-99% signal reception in Karachi.
    I Contacted the both service centre & call centre 5-7 times in 3 days, the persons in service centre simply dont have any idea of this USB service related issues. I also emailed at differnet email address of concerned USB support persons along with screen shots of statistics, but no response yet.

    I suggest that nobody should buy any company’s USB Modem service until they test it personaly at thier sales centre.

    I got it on 29th Dec., and yet i havent received download speed of more than 5Kbps when downloaded from accelarator, & when downloading within windows its just remain under 2.3Kbps.
    I can provide anyone with screen shots of all this claims…….

    “Do NOT BUY EDGE SERVICE FROM UFONE”

    Now i can say after all this that all of them are misleading people with Kbps and KBps.

    1 KB/s = 1024 bytes per second
    1 kb/s = 1000 bits per second
    1024 kb = 1 mb (megabyte)
    Therefore if you ask for a 1Mbps broadband connection, it will take minimum 8 seconds to download a 1 MB file from the internet.

    For further information on how long it will take to download a file visit:

  • Javed

    Thanx all but here’s what happened with me. I went to Ufone headoffice in Jinnah Super Isb the next day. Customer service was damn ignorant about their Edge USB. One said there were no technical issues lately, but the other was telling two boys that there actually ‘were’ & that they were working on those. They said that it doesnt meet customers’ speed expectations, & that video streaming was blocked. When I asked about post-six month tarriffs, the guy went behind to get the printouts and as I couldnt wait for ever, so I cursed myself for having gone there & left the counter. I called couple of friends, & then their friends, & finally came to know that I could get a PTCL 512K broadband @ Rs 1200 per mo but which needs a wire, or a Wateen 256K @ Rs 718 per mo or 512K @ Rs 818 per mo, which are wireless WiMax & which I can use all around my house & city & even in car coz I have a 12v to 220v car adaptor. I am a satisfied customer of Wateen WiMax since 16th Jan & am enjoying the Rs 718 per mo (rental device package wìth 256K, & I can always upgrade it to 512K by just paying 100 Rs more i.e. 818 per mo. Thanks every body coz all of you made me make the right decision not to get trapped in the fancy USB device thingy! ;-)

  • humaiyon aziz

    i have usb modem edge information with speed

  • SHEHZAD

    u fone really rocking………………………….but i like telenor service ;)

  • Tariq

    I will 100% agree with the “ufone customer”.
    UFONE is deceiving its customer.
    When I first called the call center for EDGE information inquiry, they told me that the download speed will be 60-150 Kbps and upload will be 20-50.

    UFONE is lying and PLZ DONOT USE UFONE EDGE.

    Now I have invested my money and now there is no way that I can get it back.

    There must be a legal action against UFONE.

    • Waqar

      Hey man, you can take legal action against UFONE. Just contact a normal lawyer who will take 5-10k fees to file your case under Consumer Protection Act and there you can claim a fine of rupees 5 lacs. Court will give the decision in your favor if you think you have proofs of what you are saying. Good Luck.

  • TELL ME WHICH OF THE LINE IS THE BEST IN DOWNLOAD SPEED

    AND ONE MORE THING WHICH LINE IS CHEAPEST ON EDGE

  • Dear All,

    My name is well leave it come to the point, yes i am from ufone, yes i am using the USB Edge offered by ufone, as i am in operations so i need to test all the things etc… i have found downloading speed of 15 to 19 Kilo byte per second, am not saying the kbps as it stands for kilo bit per seconds… rest u already know the difference… so what else u need peoples… not promoting ufone vas… just wanted to share my experience…

    But think about it… u got laptop, u r in some area where no connection for net is not available… also there is not light for one hour… then my dear dont you think the even 10 kb (kilo byte) is also enough at that time…

    socha karo phir bola karo dear… we all can criticize anything and in our nation it is common… but we dont think that one little thing might helo in crutial moment…

    so there it is…

    most of u will abuse me i know… most of u think that i am TC the ufone… as i am employee… most of u think that i am totall wrong…

    then again i am not asking u to purchase something… i am not asking u to go for it…

    You always have the power to choose in anything… no one forces you… but i think it is better to clear someone points with my own experience…

    GOD bless you AAMIN, also sorry for my english…

    hworang f 7…

  • anwar

    please don’t buy the ufone edge modem prepaid package. it is no more than tension.they exhaust your limit (which in fact is there)and then leave you requesting them for days to refresh it.their customer services are just cheating and nothing more. ufone people are polite only in words but ruthless cheaters at heart.

  • mohammed ilyas notezai

  • habib

    Hi everybody
    My problem is that i have been trying almost every wimax service for the last one year, bu no one came up to the expectation, I have used World Call wireless, Wateen , DSL (cable net) and now witribe. I am webmarketer and very badly need a reliable service. All the above mentioned service providers having a problem on their signals or their tower is not working etc etc.
    my wateen modem is not working for the last 15 days, i have lodged numerous complains but their response is that “wait till the upgrading process completed”
    Neither they returned my money nor give me any alternative.
    Can any one amongest you give a piece of advice in this regard.

  • tahmeed
