Ufone 3G Packages Get Announced

Ufone_3G_Logo

Ufone – that had commercially launched its 3G services last night — has now finally announced its 3G Packages for both prepaid and postpaid users.

First impression about Ufone 3G Packages is that there are tons of choices that you can choose from, based on your budget and data needs. The good thing is that Ufone 3G Packages start from as low as Rs. 5 per half day at 256Kbps to the maximum limit of Rs. 1500 for 3Mbps data speeds with monthly data limit of 3 GBs.

These newly announced Ufone 3G Packages are applicable from now for customers that are going to use 3G services in Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Karachi. Customers using 3G services in other cities should check the end of trial period as per their respective cities.

Not to mention, all the 3G handsets on Ufone network have already been provisioned by default on 3G, however, any new 3G handset on network can be provisioned by dialing *7700#.

Make sure that you have activated 3G on your phone and provision of 3G service is enabled for your number before selecting any Ufone 3G Package.

Overall, Ufone 3G Packages are pretty decent. The good thing about Ufone 3G Packages is that there are a lot of choices and options available that will cater variety of customers.

For instance those who want to browse websites only can opt for 512Kbps, while others who want to skype call can select 1Mbps. Video lovers will have to 3Mbps but with an open eye on the data limits.

I will say that there’s something from these Ufone 3G Packages for everyone.

Some users, however, may feel that 3GB monthly limit is somewhat below than what they were expecting — then you must be aware of the fact that you can subscribe to any Ufone 3G package more than one times, but that will of course cost you extra bucks.

We have mentioned this before: Mobile phone companies are going to experiment 3G packages during first few months to evaluate the feedback and demand. It is highly likely that these bundles may get revised with-in next few months.

It will also be interesting to see that how other operators are going to respond to Ufone’s 3G Packages. Given the track record, Zong’s 3G Packages are what we are waiting for in real (ahh but they haven’t even started the trial services yet).

Now let’s go straight to have a look at Ufone 3G Packages:
