Telenor to Commercially Launch 3G on June 1st


As we had hinted before, Telenor Pakistan will be launching its 3G services on commercial basis from June 1st, 2014, we have confirmed this officially.

Telenor will be second operator in Pakistan to commercially launch 3G service for its customers, earlier Ufone had launched its 3G services on May 24th, 2014.

We are assuming that Telenor will launch 3G services in four cities namely Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore and Karachi.

Not to forget, with the commercial launch of 3G services from Telenor, the trial period — during which 3G service was available to customers without any charge – is going to end. An SMS message is being sent to Telenor customers telling them that free 3G services will end on May 31st, 2014.

Telenor is likely to announce its 3G packages on the eve of May 31st.

After Telenor’s commercial launch of 3G services, Mobilink and Zong will become only two operators without any launch yet.

We have heard that Mobilink may launch its 3G services with-in first fifteen days of June, while no words can be said about Zong though, which is yet to start its trial 3G services.

We have heard Zong is going to hit the 3G market with big bang, but question of when is making its customers somewhat worried about the anticipated plans of Zong’s 3G.

Yes, we will bring the updates as soon as Telenor will announce 3G packages. So keep visiting this space back.
