    • naveed

      g han bilkul good luck telenor postpaid customers

  • Arif Tanoli

    This is so ridicules that in Pakistan every mobile network is squeezing post paid customers. Is it not shamful that guranteed customers are being exploited while casual customers are being benifited by giving low call retes and SMS/Calls packages. The worst thing is taht companies are still giving extreme pressure to franchises for post paid sales and penaulties are being imposed on non acheaving post paid targets. I dont know where PTA is sleeping.

  • Telecom

    only 80K postpaid users Telenor have so to it will go down to 40K sooon

  • Zohaib

    I’ll MNP to Zong since Telenor doesnt even allow converting package to Prepaid from Postpaid.

  • Qasim

    Mobilink sucks big time. I will stick with Telenor as a Corporate Customer.

  • Soon, Telenor will lose the value able customers…
    Not due to rates but poor services also…

    Instead to improve services, TN is increasing the charges…

  • Irfan Khalid

    it is a sign that they are planning to increase their rates. that’s why its time to switch from telenor to Zong…. :))))))))

    thanks to MNP

  • Hasan

    You really think postpaid customers care about a small increase in SMS rates. They’ll pay 100-200 PKR extra, big deal.

  • now telecom companies started monster behavior …

  • Murad Ahmad

    Post paid customers only make up for 4 percent of total traffic; yet I think Ufone offers the most flexible and affordable packages.The rates are surprisingly economical and voice quality is unmatched

  • Ghazal Khubaib

    Being a journalist I prefer two things one is maximum free minutes and SMS and second economical post paid package with fastest internet due to nature of my job.Without going into nitty gritty Ufone is simply providing solution to my priority.
