    Seriously, who DOESN’T raise prices? I use Telenor since 2005 and Mobilink since 2002 and yes it hurts when prices go up, but I don’t expect them to make loss just because Dollar is going up (equipment is imported) or local inflation. They are companies and companies are for-profit, so I expect the prices to go up.

    • Aamir has it done again. He continues to target Telenor.

      In a market which has saturated, prices going up is somewhat a non-issue. Companies run on employees which need money, not love and recognition, to run their households.

  • if its post paid than its only Warid Post paid a great services and most economical no. However with internal company condition internally as customer i do not care. Warid rocks in Post Paid

  • Best service?? I am having problem with their Edge service for last 6 months and they have done nothing to resolve it.
    Been thinking to switch for a while now, I guess I should just do it.

  • for information, mobilink also increased its postpaid tariffs earlier than Telenor n they did not even bother to inform (atleast me) ! :(

  • The most loyal customers are again hit and almost forced to switch to prepaid plans that offer unlimited calling and un-metered SMS sending.

  • Shame on u telenor, I just switched to postpaid 5 days before. Curse on telenor, even ur weblounge service not working…. Pity

  • I would have completely ignored it if their service was even 50% of what it used to be until late 2012. Unfortunately, Telenor has completely destroyed their quality and image and their Data Network (which is almost 80% of my cellphone usage and bill) hardly ever works now.

    Most of my colleagues have already switched from Telenor postpaid, and I’m also evaluating Mobilink for the past month.
