Zong Caps its Unlimited GPRS at 2 GB

Guys, Zong Unlimited GPRS Package per month has been capped now at 2 GB – So be careful. (Confirmed by a CSR)

They will update their website as well on this soon.

Also to mention, you might like Zong’s hourly GPRS Package (Rs. 15 plus tax per hour)

    No reason for me now to use Zong too. Time to switch to Ufone’s Postpaid for literally unlimited Internet with no cap.

    • khan ali

      zong is best of allllllll

  • Muhammad Abrar Naeem

    Ufone has also applied cap of 1.5 GB , and they have not told it to any one . So beware of it.

  • Saad

    So now which gprs company is best which has unlimited facility with better coverage and speed ?

  • kashif

    IM AFRAID, THERE ISN’T ANY RELIABLE NETWORK. ALL HAVE LIMIT OF 2 GB, DECIEVING CUSTOMERS. ZONG’S GPRS PACK IS CHEAPER, BUT LACKS GOOD SPEED. WE SHOULD DEMONSTRATE AGAINST THIS LOBBY BY DECREASING THEIR PROFITS. WE SHOULD CAP OUR MOBILE EXPENSES LIKE THEY’VE CAPED THEIR PACKAGES.

    • Saad

      As you told that all network has 2gb cap and same but i think there will be a good company among all as if we ignore 2gb limit of all then which one you will chose.

      Infact i wanna use mobile internet but dont know know which company gprs is best among all.

  • kashif

    UFONE IS THE BEST. SPEED IS GOOD. ZONG IS THE MOST ECONOMICAL, BUT SPEED IS BAD.

  • Zeeshan

    I agree with Kashif. Speed of Zong internet is very slow and in our area, gprs signals keep coming and going. Some times they are absent even for weeks.

    • OVAIS

      YAR RITE . UFONE IS BEST THAN ZONG

  • Usman Afzal

    I have checked the download/ upload speed of ZoNG unlimited internet on PC and these are the statistics:

    Website: http://www.speedtest.net
    Date/Time: 18 May, 2009 @ 10:30 PM PST (or 4:30PM GMT)
    Mobile: Samsung E200
    Hardware support: EDGE Class 10 (maximum 236.8 kilobits/sec)
    PC Browser: Mozilla Firefox 3
    OS: Windows XP
    Connection type: USB cable
    User Location: Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Karachi, PAKISTAN
    Distance: 650 miles (between user and testing server)
    Server used for test: Wateen Telecom Lahore, PAKISTAN (http://www.wateen.com)
    ZoNG connection: Cyber Internet Services, PAKISTAN
    ZoNG IP address: 58.65.203.33
    Avg. Download speed: (216+220+215+207+214+209)/6 = 213.5 kilobits/sec (or 26.68 KiloBytes/sec)
    Average Upload speed: (37+43+42+40+40+40)/6 = 40.33 kilobits/sec (or 5.04 KiloBytes/sec)
    Average Ping (latency) Time: (1398+1285+1261+1271+1388+1275)/6 = 1313 milliseconds

    To see the screenshots of all above speed tests, please download this pdf guide:

    Hello All, zong has made two huge changes today on their Gprs Packages for prepaid.

    1) Zong introduce new fully unlimited internet Package for Rs.999+tax/Month

    2) Zong Increase the Monthly internet usage from 2GB to 4GB, for Rs.400+tax/Month. Now you’ve 4GB Available to use for Particular Month Rather than 2GB.

    I am also worried about its speed which become very very very slow since last week. I am using 4GB package, i dont know wether it is network fault, or they have decreased downloading speed, if anyone ask them and tell me whats the problem, so in case of restricted downloading speed, i’ll back to ufone again. Thanks to All

    • Usman Afzal

      Thanks a lot for giving this info. As far as I am concerned, I was also facing slow internet of ZoNG on PC since last week but from today evening, this problem has been resolved atleast in my area (Gulshan e Iqbal, Karachi). Try to check it whether it is resolved or not in your area.

      Tonight I have checked speedtest using ZoNG 4GB internet package. See this screenshot:

    hey guys try these 3 tips..
    em using zong as well, my download speed never increased 10Kbps.. but using these 3 tips i have manged to touch 17kbps n on regular interval..i mean now my speed never drops under 10kbps…i know tht sucks but still gud for zong’s 3rd class service.. and don’t forget to download Internet Download Manager 5.18.. That’ll work great

    Tricks to increase internet speed
    1. go to desktop->My computer-(right click on)->properties->then go HARDWARE tab-> Devicemanager-> now u see a window of Device manager
    then go to Ports->Communication Port(double click on it and Open).
    after open u can see a Communication Port properties.
    go the Port Setting:—-
    and now increase ur “Bits per second” to 128000.
    and “Flow control” change 2 Hardware

    2]type this coding in notepad and save as .reg and then execute this file….this will increase ur surfing n downloading speed…..
