    • 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.

      • 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

        • 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 :)

        • 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

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

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

          • 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 :) ;)

  • can anyone guide me how to switch to ufone? I am a warid user and facing issue in port out. no reply from 667.

  • unable to connect Ufone @ New Garden Town Lahore. getting “Connection failed due to incorrect APN setting” error. HTC Sensation

  • Mian ne use kya aur paise be kat gye hai, jab ufone ko kaha tu kahne lage abi trial per hai, islye ya ho ga, sham of ufone

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

  • 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.

  • 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”)

  • 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.

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

  • last night , we tasted 3G on telenor (getting 3.5G sign on Nokia C5-00), avg downloading speed was 200KB/sec to 250KB/sec

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

  • 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 .. ;(

  • 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.

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

    • 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.

  • 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!

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

          • 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.
