  • I think the credit goes to network planning and strategy team specially director, who listen to his teams plan and share his opinions.
    I am really feel proud of that team to launch own vsat network of zong in difficult terrains of Pakistan.

    Really would like to thanks Farhan Karim and Arshad Usman for his great methodology.

  • Zong waqi best network hai.jo kaha kar dikhaya.zong is going succesfully and also keeping the needs of its customers.in 3 years mein tamam networks khas taor pe ufone ko zong ne tough comptition dya hai.well done and keep it up zong.sub keh do.

  • I guess the main reason is offering cheapest voice & data services in pakistan. Likely Unlimited calls and data for rupee 200 each. . .

  • Zong is very good on Call rates. Best in Internet rates.

    BUT needs to improve on SMS packages. Much higher than others.

  • Best in ZONG is LBC offer.

    Worst in ZONG is SMS package.

    Compare weekly package.

    Ufone: Rs.6.99/week (1200 sms)
    Warid: Rs.6.99/week (unlimitied sms)
    Telenor: Rs.7/week (1200 sms)

    ZONG : Rs. 10/week (1000 sms)
    So you can see charging the most and giving the least amount of sms.

  • I’ve been using Zong for a long time and I never had any bad experience with them. Whenever I tried to call customer help center, it immediately connected and I’ve been convinced with their customer services. Congrats to Zong. They certainly deserve it.

  • I guess its the team work of all the departments,Markeeting,Sales,NPS,RollOut
    Of Zong in achieving this milestone.
    Zong good going.

  • Salam . Signal to hai ni zong k room mai aur tower b five kilo meter dor hai. Telenor aur ufone tower b zong tower k saht hai aur telenor aur ufone k signal ache hai.

  • Zong wapai best hay main kai doston ko zong p lay k aaya hon khas tor pay lbc package ki waja say dost bohat khush hain magar jab koi bi number zong k number p aata hay tu 2 din phelay band kardaty aur sin baad main daitay hain aur agar mnp wala msg mutalqa number per bhaijain tu msg ka jawab thanks ki soorat main ajata hay magar usi number par call karo tu kehtay hain hamaray pas koi status naìn aaraha aur upper sindh aur balauchistan k sharon ko lbc package say mahroom rakha gaya hay so pl zong do something

  • They achieve the rank because of there aggressive marketing technique and LBC packages like lahore and karachi unlimited packages. They can gain more customer and there royalty if they focus on there coverage.

  • You should do a piece on how telenor became the 2nd largest mobile company in less time than everyone. Add some balance to the discussion

  • may be zong is good but its customer services is not satisfactory most of time i visit or call for port out my all family memebers number but waste of my time …..

  • zong is the best. i dont know why are people complaining about their internet speed.they should go pay 15rs for only 1mb on ufone. do din main lag pata jayega. i have been using zong for the last three years and i am really happy with all of their services. LBC and unlimited internet packages are simply off the hook. keep it up guys.

  • Zong BizXcess Postpaid very good on Call rates. Best in Internet rates & SMS service,Roll over the free minutes.
