PTA Questions Ufone Regarding Super Ghanta Offer [Update]

After Telenor approached PTA with a request to consider the details of Ufone’s Super Ghanta offer and to term it anti-competitive due to its nature of off-net hourly calls, sources have told us that authority has questioned Ufone about its Super Ghanta Offer.

PTA has asked Ufone to justify its latest promotion that offers cross subsidiary hourly calls, round the clock.

Ufone’s spokesperson was not available for the comment.

Ufone, till the filing of this report has been advertising the said promotion (However it has stopped mentioning 6 Paisa per minute tag line – which was actually outshining Telenor’s 10 Paisa promotion).

It merits mentioning here that promotion will remain valid till 28th of Ramadan, so PTA has got little time to cope with the matter.

  • Yeah very little time available for PTA to resolve the problem i think Ufone will get away with this.

    • And moreover, there is little time – if they want to actually resolve the issue.

  • Rehan

    Telenor is Jealous from UFONE.
    why PTA involved in this matter?
    why PTA not involved in TAX Matter which customers paid and Stopped Free Balance Inquiry?
    Very SAD

  • Adnan

    Telenor is jealous from UFONE its right,I was TELENOR customer and i converted to UFONE…

  • maliha hashmi

    this is absurd .. i dont know whats the point of charging tax on mere balance inquiry!! n telenor has gone mad !! :p

  • Talha

    Telenor n ufone r having really tough competition, n ufone hav come up with such unbeatable package that no other network can bring such offers, so telenor approaches pta its right! OK! I m supporting telenor!

  • Usman Ihsan

    this is telenor who lured all operators to deduct 5% as admin charges on every balance recharge. and again this is telenor who lured all to deduct 10 paisa for balance inquiry.

    i think telenor wants everything in its favour its doesn’t want anything in customers’s favour. but i applaud ufone for offering such customer friendly Super Ghanta Package. ufone is the only customer friendly operator because ufone is pakistani. so pakistan zinda baad.

  • ZeuS

    100% agree with Usman Ihsan,
    we should start a ‘Quit Telenor’ movement.

  • Sulaiman

  • Shehzad

    Yup Telenor is very Expensive & Its just in earning of money why they will care for us as they are not pakistani they just want to take their benifits from us if they will think about they will must introduce a GPRS Package but they still not offered even a 5 mb pkg on prepaid thats realy bad & Proud i hate Telenor Ufone is whatever but Good as thinks little of paki ppl too & You know telenor also Transfering about 80% of its Profit to other Forign why they dont spend it in pk even they watching our country is under development they must have to invest it here atlest about 40% is must to spend here but PTA is sleeping for that Where is PTA to tell them that ? to Tell them to introduce a GPRS Package ? We will advance with internet facility we will improve our business through that but PTA is also eating money from telenor i think Thats Why the PTA is telenor owned whatever they wana do they are doing

  • Adnan

    I think this is the right of Ufone to offer such package for sales promotions. However, this is only due to the interaction with PTCL.

    In case WARID offers same packages for wateen telephone then telenor become very angry about warid.

    This is the right of operator to offer lowest pacakges but PTA should’nt control higher pacakges of mobilink. Y. because they dont have soft corner for Paki ppls.

  • ZIFAH

    Well no one here like as Zong, is there any operator who is offering internet package till gb? is there any company who is offering on net calls for the just rupees 210 Per month?
    who launched free sms packages and whcih company is providing still these packages?
    Only ZONG
    i am surprised my pakistanies have alot of money to spend on costly operators, i am not zong employeee, but i proud to be use zong,
    i know there are some network issues in zong , but i just wana ask what you people will say about mobilink , mobilink still today not stable after 20 years still many people complain balance deduction complains,
    NOW ITS TIME TO SWITCH ON ZONG FARE PRICE FARE RATES
