Mobilink Launches 3G Trial in Five Cities


Mobilink has started 3G trials in Karachi, Quetta, Faisalabad, Multan and Peshawar, we have confirmed with sources.

While Mobilink is yet to issue an official statement on commencement of 3G trials, our sources tell that Mobilink’s 3G services are available in at least five cities of the country.

A company official – on condition of anonymity – confirmed ProPakistani that Mobilink is testing 3G in limited parts of Rawalpindi / Islamabad and Lahore as well. However, five cities mentioned above have excessive coverage of Mobilink’s 3G.

Mobilink had won 10Mhz of 3G spectrum during April’s 3G and 4G auction.

Unlike Telenor and Ufone, Mobilink decided to launch 3G trials in more than five cities including Peshawar, Multan, Faisalabad and Quetta where no other operator launched 3G during the trial period.

Cellular companies are set to commercially launch 3G services in Pakistan on May 10th, 2014.

Sources said that 3G data services with Mobilink during the trial duration will be free. However, customers are advised to keep a watch on their balance to make sure that data services are indeed free.

          Faisalabad me kis jaga 3g chal rahi hai?
          any idea?

          • Bilal Ashraf

            agriculture university

            • dr.shahid

              nops bro not in agriversity

  • Saqib Hassan

    I have been robbed by Ufone.Contrary to their claim that 3G is free in designated areas of Rawalpindi/Islamabad , I have been charged and witnessed like edge service and havent experienced greater speed free of cost.Well done Ufone, U will remain a theif as always.

    • ampmvp

      You get charged when the network goes from E to 3G. So activate a 2G package in the meanwhile.

      • Saqib Hassan

        The network never switched from Edge to 3G,except when i rebooted my phone,it showed H just for 2-3 seconds and then E again.Worth mentioning here that I checked area coverage and handset compatibility ahead of this roberry.:)

        • Abdul Mueid Shahid

          its not robbery. its called stupidity. select only wcdma only while in 3g coverage area pa jee

          • Khurram ShahzAd

            Well I would call it robbery too, coz they knew due to less coverage people’s phone will switch back to gsm in turn edge every now and then, so they would have freed the edge as well during trail period.

            Our operators have this habit of robbing people by giving some services free like FB or whatsapp and when due to users being not very well aware to technology they are on, they get charged for all that background data.

            • Saqib Hassan

              Mr.I belong to the same industry. I never witnessed 3G on my phone using Ufone except when I rebooted many times It appeared for just 2 secs and then ‘E” as always.They should have kept WCDMA only option open and have provided what they claim.When I tried to register a complaint about site they refused by saying that there is no such issue in this cell site.
              No issues faced on Telenor.

              • Khurram ShahzAd

                yeah, they would have kept WCDMA only and would have missed calls and sms when they would have out of 3G coverage area. Thats not practical, bro.

                • Saqib Hassan

                  I agree but i was just sharing my experience.It must connect when i am in service area on WCDMA only.Moving to a non coverage area is another case.

          • Saqib Hassan

            LOL at your used word stupidity.I am not going to comment on this.
            I used WCDMA only and GSM/WCDMA both and it didnt connect either.Worth mentioning here that Network signals gone when selected with WCDMA only.So i called helpline for advice and they asked to select GSM/WCDMA.
            Soon after trying for both options repeatedly I came to know that my balance has been consumed in a confirmed 3G service Site area.Whereas i have been using Telenor 3G flawlessly.:)
