Qubee Introduces 1.5Mbps Postpay WiMax

Qubee now becomes the second to offer 1.5Mbps Wimax broadband in Pakistan, earlier Wi-tribe was offering the same speed.

With the name of  Venture Max, Qubee now introduces, though apparently, unlimited 1.5Mbps at same price as Wi-Tribe is offering.

Charges:

  • Monthly Charges of Rs. 2400
  • Security deposit of Rs. 3200 (refundable)
  • Total upfront charges for new connection:
    • Indoor Modem: Rs. 5200
    • Wifi Modem: Rs. 5700
    • Shuttle: Rs. 5200

As per Qubee, the package is unlimited as Qubee says:

The unlimited packages have no cap on the amount a customer downloads. However, the customer bandwidth may be subjected to a higher contention

But while talking to a Qubee representative, he told that this package is unlimited in the sense that if you corss the monthly cap of 40GB, you will still be able to use the internet but the connection speed will be limited to 64Kbps for that month. Once the billing cycle completes, your connection speed will be restored to original one.

Also Qubee website says that “Out of bundle charges Rs 0.11 per MB” but he said that there are no extra charges for the over usage for unlimited package but the over usage will result in the reduction in connection speed, as described earlier

Note:

  • The unlimited packages for residential users are not usable by commercial users or for further reselling as per directives of PTA


  • anyone would like to shed more lights on Shuttle: Rs. 5300 ???

  • Correction: it is Rs. 5200
    5200 = 3200 Security Deposit + 1000 Activation Fee + 1000 Shuttle Security Deposit.

    So in other words it’s not actually an unlimited connection. They just increased the download limit to 40GB. Offer is exactly the same as wi-tribe.

    I guess we are still better off with wateen in wimax services as we atleast can download without worrying for these crap capped connections.

    “you will still be able to use the internet but the connection speed will be limited to 64KBPS for that month”

    Does it mean 64KB/sec? or 64kbps?

    • It is 64Kbps.

    • faizan

      it is unlimited,you can still download as much as you can after 40GB @ 64kbps.
      Unpractical but still lives up to the marketing name of unlimited

  • SAAD

    THIS IS CRAP, WI-TRIBE IS WAY BETTER THAN THIS.

  • Farhan

    i think, now wateen is more better then qubee, wi-tribe because wateen offers pure unlimited

    • WateenDontWork

      Bhai kitne dafa bataoon ga, Wateen ka wimax fail ho gaya heh.

      SAAD sahee keh raha heh… Witribe neh sub logon koh wimax sikhaya heh. Mobilink Infinity ko, Augere koh or Wateen koh.

    Ufffff itna sasta broadband? PTCL is offering real unlimited 2Mbps at 1499 from July and 1199 per month till June 30.

    Witribe’s customer care is much better than PTCL’s so it will get benefit from those who are not happy with PTCL’s inability to improve its customer care in comparison to what market demands

  • Information Technology Jobs

    Such a high rate won’t help Qubee to capture the market. Why people will opt for it when it’s serving only in four or five main cities while PTCL Evo is working in more than 50 cities of Pakistan.

  • Aamir

    Very expensive,
    I am using PTCL’s evo for 3.1mbps at Rs.2,000/month
    And there are no limitations, speed is good and i download lots of stuff with no problem at all.

    Nobody can beat PTCL. Facto!

  • omer

    i used 63gb last month on wateen 1mb unlimited. I am satisfied .

  • Mavrik

    man, its too expensive, i get the same upload/ download speed on my 1 Mbps WiMAX by infinity, so why pay more

  • Malik

    I get truly unlimited with Ptcl EVo no cap on volume and no cap on speed , no hidden charges no nothing that’s truly UNLIMITED for ME

    My friend Your post is not updated. Looks like you were so hurry in posting and so lazy in updating it.

    You Posted “Also Qubee website says that “Out of bundle charges Rs 0.11 per MB” but he said that there are no extra charges for the over usage for unlimited package but the over usage will result in the reduction in connection speed”

    Qubee website tariff tells No out of bundle charges on Unlimited Downloads. GO check first then post here.

    • Raheel I can easily guess why! But please note that post was published on 9th of May and i don’t think so it needs any update, why? let me explain.

      It is already mentioned in the post that there are no out of bundle charges as we spoke to representative and detail was provided here. About Qubee’s website, we just mentioned that even though there are no out of bundle charges, Qubee website still says “Out of bundle charges Rs 0.11 per MB”.

      So it’s Qubee’s delay to update their website, not ours. We are not creating any misconception here, as things are already clear.

      Hope this clears unjustified blame.
