Qubee Gets Pricy

By Sarwat B. Khan

Just one month after the official launch of the WiMAX product, Qubee has started charging initial cost or what they call (non-refundable) installation charges – however, tariff plans remain the same. These charges are other than security charges.

Earlier Qubee was offering Zero charges for installation, which are now Rs. 500 for Modem and Rs. 1,500 for Wi-Fi device. These prices can be verified from Qubee’s helpline, as they are yet to be updated on official website.

With a very few customer base, and limited bandwidth, Qubee still have a way to go to survive in the wireless broadband market and co-exist with giants like Wateen.

Given that Qubee is still to launch its services in Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Lahore, this hike in pricing is going to give tough time to its sales team.

To give the picture, here is a comparative analysis of Qubee offerings versus Wateen’s:

Augere needs to do serious thinking to survive in this market. Poor taglines like “Insomnia is in fashion” on billboards all over the places cannot save them in competitive market.


  • NEVER BUY QUBEE..POOR COVERAGE AND SLOW STREAMING…WASTE OF MONEY…GO FOR ANY OTHER WIMAX.

  • The wateen 1MB connection costing 1500Rs is unlimited, it does not have a 32GB cap as mentioned.

    • Actually Wateen have a cap of 30 GB.When you crossed the limit calculate your download speed.
      Moreover,Wateen clearly mentioned in their terms and conditions
      *Fair usage applies*
      what does it mean?

  • Also the 512K one, now who is insane enough to buy capped connections of qubee and wi-tribe.

  • Wateen bad performance has given it a bad name. I had paid more than six for its MOTORLA CPE. Its signal strength was very very poor.

    Wateen should replace the old CPE without cost.

  • Qubee is a small Company run by big gun(Mubashir Naqvi) and future is dark
    Dont have own network but in contract with Telecard
    CEO Mubashir Naqvi is like Ship in Canal
    Thanks

    • QUBEE IS USING TELECARD TOWERS ONLY,NOT TECHNOLOGY.
      QUBEE USING OFDMA LAYER FIXING THEIR OWN BTS FROM HUWAEI AND ZTE.

  • Qubee is providing great services. I am using it. I had subscribed it when Wifi modem was free….. GREAT QUBEE………..

  • There is big difference at times of Wateen they have too much money to spend and they have bunch of fools running it mostly busy getting the cut in each and every deal they are making where qubee did not have that much money you can not compete with shaikh
    qubee is run by 4th party not even 3rd party
    like frequency from telecard
    ip from supernet
    sales and marketing from bla bla bla
    support from bla bla bla
    so this qubee is bla bla bla

    more questions are welcome

    • If Qubees service goes down i lose nothing. I lost more than six rupees on WATEEN Motorala CPE.

      The service is at the moment. DNS server in good condition. PTCL DNS server had been behaving bad after content filtration was applied.

    • BEFORE GOING TO COMMENT ON QUBEE,1ST TRY TO GET VALID INFORMATION THAN COME IN TO THE GROUND FOR DISCUSSION.YOU HAVE WRONG INFORMATION ABOUT QUBEE.

    • Tariq re-check:
      frequency from telecard (Wrong)
      correction: frequency from Augere’s Sharp communication.

      IP from Supernet (wrong)? what do u mean?

      Sales & Marketing from bla bla (what’s bla bla)
      Sales & Marketing from sales team.

      Support from bla bla (What’s bla bla?)
      Support done by support team (technical , customer support etc)

      I think you are paid person by bla bla company to write bla bla about qubee.

    • Insomnia is acute sleeping disorder, not something to be used as a marketing tagline. In a country where depression and sleeplessness is increasing with every day, promoting the medical disorder as “cool” among the youth is rather cheap,irresponsible and reflects their reckless attitude with their customers!

      I am sure Qubee would have been sued for it if it had been in another country. What a shameful approach to gain popularity!

      In short, they dont give a damn if you fall ill of restlessness, they want their bloody connections to get selled!

      • Actually you ppl only know what “Insomnia” means in medical terms.
        We defined the above terms, that we give opportunity to our user to enjoy and experience Uninterrupted service.This is the fact that every body needs uninterrupted services,which prevent discontinuity and hassle.When you feel comfort with your WISP’s you will suffer from Insomnia,and this is not a bad things,and when a person gets good service he does not realise whats the time is while working.

        • Sorry but I am least convinced that how can be any person with sheer comfort level (as you suggest one will achieve through using Qubee) can become the victim of Insomnia?

          Do share your knowledge of definition of Insomnia other than being medical!

          And besides, as you said,

          “Actually you ppl only know what “Insomnia” means in medical terms.”

          By “you”, you mean the public right? What kind of poor marketing is it which is FOR the public, yet knowing that THE PUBLIC won’t get it?

          • Actually in the world of Internet there is a alot of competition
            Consumer willing to avail our connection even at the high rate 1024kbps with 18GB @Rs=1600/= P/M.
            We are not doing anything if any one wants to become a victim of “Insominia”.
            Now what you say?
            We are talking with strong facts and Figure not “IN THE AIR”

  • I will soon buy “Qubee Shuttle package” :)

    I have 1MB package with worldcall – (Not Happy) because the speed is not really fast.

    I have 1MB wateen package – (Very Good) but it gets disconnected very much.

    Now I am going to try Qubee, hope they will have good signals quality and good speed.

    I don’t care what other people are saying against or in favor of Qubee on this post because I want to try it first then I can comment.
