  • kamal

    When they are offering this service in pindi

    • K.A.

      I think they will never offer it for Pindi.

  • is there any monthly charges???

  • K.A.

    Mandi, Bahauddin, Panu, Aqal are not 4 cities as mentioned in above post. Mandi Bahauddin is one city, and Panu Aqal is another city.

  • kamal

    Why not rawalpindi if they can offer it for a big city like lahore and i think other companies would soon jump into these competion otherwise zong could take away their coustomers through MNP

  • kamal

    @noman :there are no monthly charges only daily charges

  • Zuhayb H. Shah

    Indeed a very good marketing edge by zong, they should offer this service to taxila/wah cantt customers too.

    Sab Keh Do =)

  • Muhammad Touseef

    when will they launch it in peshawar

  • Shehzad Khan

    What if thay offer the same service in Attock…….I with all of my Friends and family shift over numbers from Mobilink to Zong…………Just waiting……

    • The Truth

      what if they dont ?

  • The Truth

    why dont they just reduce the price for the whole country

  • ebad

    Basic concept of LBC (Location based charging) is to introduce subsidized charging on individual cell sites (or collection of cell sites making an LBC city)

    The reason Zong chose these sites would be on the basis of Low Network traffic in these areas. Meaning that Zong has coverage in these areas but Not a significant percentage of subscribers use Zong.

    Hence, Zong has offered subsidized rate in areas/cities of low Network traffic to revitalize increased usage (in case of existing customers)
    New sales (in case of new customers)
    & churn from other networks on Zong

    Offering the same rate throughout the country is damaging in terms of potential revenue generation.

    Telenor also soft launched this service back in 2008 in select cities (Sukkur, RYK) but it dind’t wwork that well. Important aspect of Telenor’s approach was that the subsidized rate was applicable for all subscribers falling in the coverage areas of LBC sites, hence no subscription was required. It was very intelligently promoted through cell info display as well. But it didn’t turn out to be a big success & was shelved. Lets see if Zong makes it work. All the best to Zong!
