Zong Ends Unlimited Calls on LBC Packages

Zong, the king of Location Based Charging, has decided to abandon unlimited calls for LBC package holders by putting a fair usage policy on utilization of daily free minutes.

Zong remained most successful amongst all local operators in capitalizing the location based charging. This is evident from the fact that Zong registered record number of sales in last 12 months or so – (arguably) over the shoulders of these LBC offerings.

However, now Zong has decided to cap the unlimited calls by limiting the quota for daily usage. Read on to know the details:

Fair Usage Policy for LBC Packages:

All those Zong customers, availing LBC package for any city (Including Lahore, Karachi or any other city)

  • Now free on-net calls for LBC Package are not unlimited
  • 180 free on-net minutes will be given every day
  • After first 180 free minutes, each call will be charged at 10 paisa per minute

Even after this cap, it’s fairly a useful package – given that daily charges for LBC offering are just Rs. 7 plus tax. But the joy of unlimited calling will definitely be missed.
