    • I’ve been using Warid for about 3 Years,Never faced any problem related to Coverage and Quality. I found only WARID the best network in PAKISTAN – undoubtedly!

      Their recently launched offers (Power Pack, Ghanta Offer, SMS Bundles, Advance Balance etc)are simple awesome. I’m lovin’ it :D

      • yes , you are right , warid has best network in all , because of low user accessibility i think,,, , i personally recommended warid for business point of view.,

      • I got Warid Postpaid and a Prepaid (ported from ufone) connections.. Undoubtedly Warid is the best Network for its quality of service!

    • ap jaisa b sochte hai,ye to data bata raha hai,k kon acha hai,our kon bura,qk zong lead kar raha hai,zong s rock

  • Why can’t Ufone even reach near Telenore???? I’ve been expecting for years now that ufone would over take telenore but telenore seems to be cursing.

    Can anyone tell me is telenore service better than ufone’s???

      • Telenor being 2nd largest cellular network in Pakistan has worst ever customer support!

        I had some issues with my Telenor connection (Random activation date when SMS to 667) and I’ve registered more than 12 complains through Care-Line and through emails as well but after a month still my problem is there and they don’t care about their customer. For all those who say TELENOR is best blah blah… Its the most worst network ever!! I HATE IT :/

        Where as UFONE takes up your complain to higher level and they confirm to their customers by calling them whether problem has been resolved or not! That’s what I love about UFONE, they care about their customers! :)

    • Telenor is even far better than Mobilink , I have been & ( will continue ) using Telenor sim since many years & never faced problems.

      feels like that their rates are a fraction high than others but their coverage is AWESOME.

      ITS QUALITY NETWORK AGAINST MONEY . & THE CUSTOMER GETS THE BENEFIT. NO DOUBT

      I travel a lot in Pakistan & where all fail I have full network of Telenor . My international calls are connected in first instant with clear voice but I don’t use SMS as I don’t have time for these.

      I was in Murrey a few days back & had Telenor sim with full coverage on Mall road , others ( Warid ,Ufone ) were all OUT ..

    • Telenor se SMS shaam 6 baje bhejo raat 11 baje milta hai, Network wo jo reliable ho like WARID n UFONE!

      • telenor ka internet package 3mb for 4RS. LOL

        3mb main sirf check kar saktey hain internet chal bhi raha hai ya nahi:P

  • Yar in companies k revenue stats mile tu pata chale k kon kitne pani mein hai, Customer base se kya hota hai.

  • Aamir,

    It would be great if you could publish the revenues of each company also. Market share is one thing but revenues will also give us a further insight of how companies are performing.

  • Bahi saib, aap loog saray telenor, ufone, mobilink kalina band karo. All operators are good and providing the stat of art support to their customer.

    • Agreed with above

      Agar kisi k sath kuch bura howa ha tu yaar, baqi log tu service sa happy han :) i use Ufone & telenor im happy with both of them :) never face any kind of problem :)

  • i’m really not surprised to read this. What else could you expect from our hardworking public?? The advancement in this filed is the only thing they can do & are doing without any general problem. It’s ok if you don’t have anything for supper but it’ll make difference if your pocket is out of any cell. This is what our common think is.

  • Can anyone please tell me how PTA or Cellular operators are estimating their subscriber base.
    Is it based on the total number of connections sold, or number of individuals (meaning one NIC card treated as one subscriber irrespective of how many SIM cards he has). Do the operators take into consideration the approximate churn rate when estimating their subscriber base?

    Sorry I am a technical guy and new to this economic stuff.

  • Zong the best 12 rs+tax rozana may zong say zong free calls tamam networks per 500 sms…100 mms…1 hour net aik he pkg may dial *717# for Perfect pkg…is k alawa 75 min 100 sms daily 4 rs may dial *369# for zong flutter pkg…SUB KEH DO…

  • I’ve been using both Warid as primary and Telenor as Secondary sim. I have had no problems with both the networks, the customer support for both telecom have been very helpful and service centre operatives are efficient.

    As far as signal strength is concerned, I believe Warid’s signal strength has improved over the years and Telenor’s signal strength is very good.

    Price factor, Warid has better postpaid packages, as for Telenor it suppports good prepaid packages.

  • IN MY PERSONAL OPINION AND AS PER MY EXPERIENCE IN MOST OF PAKISTANI SERVICE PROVIDERS SAB BRABAR LOOT RAHAY HAIN BUS TARAIQA WAARDAAT DIFFERENT HAY
    SHAIKH SAADI BARSON PEHLAY KEH CHOOKAY HAIN KEH JAB TAK BEWAQOOF ZINDA HAIN AQALMANDON KAA KAROBAAR CHALTAA RAHE GAA … LET THEM DO BUSINESS, ENJOY LIFE AND KEEP SMILING
    MUSHTAQ ALAM

  • I would suggest telecommunication giants to introduce inter-network roaming so that subscriber of any network can connect to any other network and host company should charge guest company on time or usage basis. Guest company would alternatively charge its subscriber. Thus mobile user will be able to connect and use the strong network everywhere throughout the country of their choice.

  • UFOEN is best, Punjab me telenor khatam ho raha hai, telenor is v bad network and expensive…Punjab k hr village me UFONE he UFONE hai..UFONE is Best.
