          • Islah

              • Guest

                Ufone 3G at Thokar.

                • Waqas Ahmad Khan

                  Now that is Wao…………………………………..

                • Naseer Ahmad

                  I am at thoker but do not have 3g coverage, where are you on thoker

                • Khurram Raja

                  This is modified picture not real, it was tested with PTCL DSL and then the status bar was changed lol you think we are idiots

                • Muhammad Usman

                  good speed

    • umair

      Speed is even poor than edge :(

      • Fakhre Alam

        its kB/s not kb/s . 142 kB/s translates to almost 1.1mbps

        • guest

          are you serious buddy? data speeds are measured this way….with 3g you should be getting 1+ here, not in kb…don’t settle for garbage

        • FACT

          HAHAHA… big or small B, b doesn’t make any difference FYI.

        • jds

          Yes You right
          KB = Kilo Bytes = 1000 Bytes
          kb = Kilo Bits = 1000 bits
          Bit = bit
          Byte = 8 bit

          • Mustafa

            Kilo Byte = 1024 bytes
            same for bits :)

        • AHMAD NAUMAN

          Agree Its KB/s not Kb/s but still 3g should be more like 5Mb/s…..

          • Syed Arslan Tahir

            yes you are right, abhi tu puri tarah say 3G ki availabitly bhi nahi hay , aur speed kam hay and too much fluctuation , jab load ho ga customers ka, then you know better what will happen , main thing is consistency , which i think is missing.

        • Umair

          Sorry but i didnt noticed!

    • Naveed

      What phone are you using?

      • Haaris Ahmad

        seems to be having a nexus 5…Kitkat rom lag rahi hai..:)

        • Naveed

          Nexus 5 is not a dual sim :P

          • Haaris Ahmad

            oops..hahaa..how can i skip that..:D

        • Muhammad Umer

          Moto G hoga

          • Naveed

    • guest

      to the idiot that posted above (fakhre alam), these are the 3g speeds you should be getting, not 140kb/s LOL…..

      • Guest

        Upper mentioned screenshot showed speed in Kb/s which is 140 kb/s and this one is in mbps ppl cant differentiate what does mean by kb/s and Mbps they comment like they are the tech geek sorry but its true….. and those commenting on speed i think they have 50 Mbps connection in home.. awake up guys we r the one who lived on edge for more than 5 years..

      • Umair

  • Sarmad

    I was a Warid customer and switched to Ufone to avail the next generation services, Thanks Ufone for this wonderful launch in Lahore. services witnessed are amazing and helping me a lot in my routine business. when services of next generation are available in the town, then why should one stick to old generation like Warid. lets live with the current generation…………

    • Sami

      Thanks Sarmad. me too planning to switch to Ufone along with my entire F&F.

      • Naveed

          • Naveed

            Bhai , Warid’s official page says that they will be launching the LTE services soon and I read somewhere that they will be launching LTE end of May (Major cities of course)

            Most of the new phones are 4G LTE supported :)

            • Khattak

  • Yasir Mahmood

    Already Expereinced Telenor’s HSPA In Rawalpindi and Its Amazing …

    • Syed Arslan Tahir

      Yasir , in which area you specifically find 3G from telenor, we are not getting here at TENCH BHATTA , but my phone is able to find UFONE 3G , no telenor yet.

      • Yasir Mahmood

        I used it in Front of Liaqat Bagh,And i experience Speed Upto 170KB/s ,with Zero Balance
        But its Another Fact that the HSPA Sign Disappeared When Reached Commette Chowk Underpass ,Which means that Not all Towers are Yet Equipped with 3G Upgradation

        • Naveed

          Can you please post a screenshot by using speedtest app and choose Mb/s in settings :) that would be really helpful as i am on Warid and thinking to either port to Telenor or Mobilink :)

        • Syed Arslan Tahir

          Hi, yasir bro thanks for the help, i have visited some places of Rawalpindi , and Islamabad, In Rawalpindi , i got almost 5Mb/s near saddar (haider road signal H+ ), superb speed , unfortunately i did not know any software to capture screen from my S4 mini, and in Islamabad (H8 , in-front of Shifa international , i got almost 4Mb speed H+ ) but with fluctuation, but in saddar it was smooth, and now i am getting H+ signal only on my roof top at home with H+ but speed only reach 250KB/s when downloading from UC browser

          • Haider

            What about chaklala scheme 3. Is ufone 3G activated here?

            • Syed Arslan Tahir

              brother you can try on your roof top as i do, but i am not sure about that area,

            • Naveed

              Ufone 3G trial is only available in Lahore, they haven’t started it in ISB/RWP yet

          • Naveed

            Taking a picture is so easy :)

            Hold the Power button and Home button down at the same time until you see the animation on the screen (which is quite brief so pay attention!)

            Open the speedtest app and do the test and then take a pic by doing above :) ;)

  • Ahmed

    Such limited coverage in Lahore even for a trial is pathetic. :(

    • tungi

      try changing ur network setting to 3g only on wcdma only!what is happening is that the signal of edge is higher so it automatically shifts to it!!but if u change it to 3g only it will work with one signal also

      • Ahmed

        Yeah but overall it’s going awesome, tested in Gulberg/Iqbal town area. I am getting 5 Mbps DL and 1 Mbps UL !!!

  • Djuicer

    Telenor has launched free trial service in karachi, lahore and islamabad selected areas. Did u miss the story ??

  • Mustafa

    The main thing is YouTube is not blocked in Ufone :D

  • ahmed naeem

    From last 2 weeks I am using 3G on telenor network. In start the speeds of the internet were really awesome between 7mbps to 10 mbps . But from last two or three days, I am not getting speed more than 2mbps. But still better than the ufone speed.

  • Ali Asghar

    Here is my H+ speeds in Telenor, Karachi, I am using it regularly since Auction day, Here’s another test I took of telenor HSDPA test, but forgot to take screenshot, but managed to get URL of it: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/810903282
    So Telenor free HSDPA internet is the best thing for me, grabbed this opportunity to download 3 blu-ray movies till now :D no other operator is giving 3g here except Telenor, Ufone is government oriented company, so no surprises they’ll prefer Punjab cities only, although Karachities are highest tax payers in the country…I know it’s a fact, ohh yeah..I use zong not telenor, telenor is using by my father. Take that “Sachi yaari JAIB pe bhaari” (TVC of ufone in response to Telenor’s “Sachi yaari sab pe bhaari”)

  • razzak khan

    On telenor constant speed of 2mbps

  • Geekpk

    Mall road, signals were not strong at this time.

  • yaowei

    What about this speed guys?

    • Naveed

      Wow thats cool.. where are you getting that speed ? is that on Ufone ?

  • Muhammad Yousaf

    WARNING !!! : If you enable WCDMA/GSM Auto connect mode, if you are not geting the 3G service your balance will be deducted. To avoid balance deduction in trial mode in android enable only WCDMA.
    You can change this in Settings -> More Networks ->Mobile Networks -> Network Mode -> WCDMA Only.
    My own 100 recharge lost due to this, also i hot HISAB SMS which described the internet charges.

  • Syed Arslan Tahir

    when will ufone set lose 3g in pindi / islamabad for trail ? any Leaked Info.

    • Naveed

  • Syed Arslan Tahir

    • Naveed

      what area is that in RWP ?

      • Syed Arslan Tahir

        ALLAMA IQBAL COLONY , but only on roof top we got signals,

  • Naveed

    Disappointing speed offering by Telenor in Blue Area Islamabad :(

  • Umer Daraz

    ufone tu dako hai, 3g use ke aur paise be kat gye, jab helpline per kaha tu kane lage, abi neya hai, is lye,

  • Syed Arslan Tahir

    Ufone started in Rawalpindi , only for 200MB you will get full speed, after 200MB speed will be 30KB/sec, Ufone waqai aik tum he B* ho .. ;(

  • BurhanSaeed

    Anyone with HTC Sensation/HTC usign ufone 3g…Please share the APN settings. The one provided by Ufone isn’t working. I don’t know why. getting “Connection failed due to incorrect APN setting”

    I’m a ufone postapid user…but with no edge/gprs data plan enabled.

  • Muhammad Yousaf

    I am getting 1 to 2 Mb in Gulberg Lahore near hafeez center.

  • Muhammad Yousaf

    Beaware when 3G signal lost you will be charged for using the internet it will not be FREE..

    • FACT

      That’s indeed the best bet to use 3G free only when you have 0 balance if there is no 3g only setting in device.

  • Ahmad

    Free trial is only available on selected numbers

    • FACT

      Wrong…. Free trial is available to all numbers but on few locations!

  • FACT

    I never studied arts and I know difference in bits and bytes. My comment was based on assumption that normally speed is testing in bytes while data packets received in bits!
    Anyhow, your speed was still too low if it was 3G but I am sure it was not and you may have been charged for it or may be poor signals!

    • Fakhre Alam

      LoL

      • FACT

        LOL at your speed ;);) ;) ;) 1000 times at a time ;)
        You seem only studied these 3 letters and believe on online unauthenticated resources. LOL

        • Fakhre Alam

          LOL at you again. i never posted any picture related to speeds

          • FACT

            LOL only at you & your memory, look in the mirror then see here and see your posted result related picture! The try to edit post. HAHAHA.
