Wateen’s Re-launch – Unlimited Packages, Lower Rental for Limited Packages

As we have anticipated about possible wateen’s relaunch, we have got this news confirmed after seeing today’s advertisement, very ambiguous one tough – no details at all. If you point to their website, you will be amazed that there are no tariff details available there too. I am wondering why Wateen thinks their call center can perform better than their website in snatching customers.

Just couple of more lines before we go to tariff – advertisement published in newspapers is the most confusing part of Wateen. Following is the advertisment, and then review below given rates – you can decide yourself.

Anyway, let’s get back to tariff; Wateen has removed the cap from all packages, which are 256, 512 and 1 MB packages. However, all speeds are available in 5 GB and 10 GB limit as well. Rates are as following

Wateen_Tariff_01
*Usage above the assigned data cap will be charged at Rs 25/100MB
**Fair usage policy applies

One more thing that you must have to avail telephony services in order to get WiMAX broadband – meaning that you will have to pay the monthly rental for telephony, even if you need internet only. So in case you don’t need telephony, you should subscribe to lowest package that is available at Rs. 120 plus tax per month.

By the way, if you want to replace your PTCL with Wateen’s telephony services, then check following tariff.
