Zong to Commercially Launch its 3G Services Tomorrow

Zong_3G

Zong is all set to commercially launch its 3G services tomorrow, we can confirm you.

Unlike other operators, Zong decided to go for a commercial launch without a massive free-trial for users. Though it claims to have offered a limited free-trial in Lahore but we didn’t receive any independent confirmations for that.

Some 351 Zong customers were selected for the 3G trial from Zong in Lahore. It is told that their feedback was recorded and considered for the commercial launch.

As per information we have received now, Zong is planning to arrange a launch ceremony at its headquarters tomorrow evening. Ceremony will mark the commercial launch of its 3G network in the country.

Zong will start offering 3G services in Lahore and Karachi from second day of the launch, that is by coming Friday. Islamabad is likely to get 3G services from Zong with-in a week, a source has told. Naturally more cities are likely to be added with time.

Officials of Zong are pretty excited about the launch and said that user experience on their 3G network will beat competition. Reportedly Zong is deploying HSPA+ for 3G service, which is capable of offering 42Mbps theoretical speeds for end users.

Zongers are calling their 3G as Super 3G for the same reasons, but we are not going to get influenced by statements only, especially when their 3G launch is just a day away.

Since they didn’t do the trials, we aren’t sure about the Zong’s quality of service standards yet, but as I said above, things are going to get revealed to the world in a day at most.

Few readers have already send us the screenshots of Zong’s 3G, which means that service has been delivered and an official launch is what they are waiting for.

Check below a screen shared by Muhammad Zohair Chohan, from Lahore:

Currently Ufone and Telenor have launched their 3G services. With the launch of Zong’s 3G services, Mobilink will become the only operator to have not commercially launched the product.

Mobile phone users are anxiously waiting for Zong’s 3G plans. Considering its previous record, It is largely anticipated Zong will offer low-cost 3G plans. So let’s wait till tomorrow evening and we will see.

  • Holy cow !! I’m soo looking forward to use Zong 3G coz cant wait to decide if i’m going to stick to Zong coz of 3G or im gonna portin towards some other operator !!

    Lets hope they’ll offer some cheap 3g packages and hopefully they’ll not screw this up !!

    • I am on verge to leaving them after using their postpaid service for last 4 years. Was talking to a friend working in Zong the other day and he told me that Zong has total management failure as far as 3G/4G is concerned. Don’t have any hopes but lets see.

      • Yup you’re right, i just recently heard that zong was not happy with its top management and they did fired some high post officors and took charge of 3G launching !! Same goes with other services !! Lets see what they’ve to offer

        • This is true. CEO of China Mobile itself in charge for upgrading and launching. The company is updating 50 sites per week on latest equipment which other don’t have. That is also the main reason that most of the users getting down an up links way better then other 3 operators …

    • As Predicted from their Cheapest GPRS Packages ,It is Expected that they will Do Better then Other Pathetic Telcos 3G Packages

  • Lol @351 users feedback.. Fingers crossed. I believe tariff will be good but I doubt on their 3g coverage and services let’s see
    Hope for the best good luck zong

    Hope for the best good luck zong

  • Go zongers lets see will u beat telenor or not they are providing upto 10mbps on hspa

  • Nice to hear that .. But can you confirm there coverage area too ? hopefully the packages will be good but I really want to see there coverage area. :)

    • You can expect 1mb/1 re and there will be few bundle packages too i guess for students and for professionals ..

  • The most important thing is the coverage area. 3G coverage for Ufone and Telenor has been practically useless to be honest as it’s a very limited area.

  • Aamir bhai Zong 3G connect ho gya hai apki is post ky baad mene connect kiya and yeh speed test zong 3G ka #Lahore #Chungi Amar Sidhu

  • I am using Zong3g since last month, quite surprisingly not disappointed with it, I achieve 4.2 Mbps max speed, even there 2g networks is become better as far as signal strength is concerned, not sure what happens when it open for public but for now its Good

  • The company which can not provide Mirco and Nano SIM how it can provide Quality 3/4G services. Its a big joke. Stupid QoS by Zong.

    • Brother mai nai kal apni sim 1 nano and 1 micro pay switch kraie hai. For your info the new sim jacket from Zong is for multi phones .. I mean the normal size sim can b converted to micro in less then one sec dear. Check your nearest service centre ..

      • This is shit solution to cut sim. Warid is offer all three types of SIM. Cheap company always provide cheap solution

        • Zong is offering all the three sizes from Customer Service Centers. I am using iPhone 5s and have the ZonG Nano Sim in it. Another phone with ZonG’s official micro sim too. Please visit yourself and get your sim cards replaced in no time.

        • Zong has the worst CSR. Just take some time out and visit the service center yourself. Make sure your sim should be registered on your own name. If yes, you will get your desired sim in a min. They have all three standards available. Standard, Micro and Nano.

    • Couldn’t agree more. Btw, the evening has passed by, haven’t seen any launch news just as yet :)

  • Hey! Admin, could you confirm me that when 3G is going to be started in hyderabad. Please. I’ve been waiting.. I have asked to their help line and they replied ,when it would be started we would confirm you but they didn’t tell any definite date, month.,year.

    • within 6 months after the launch, i hope so but confirmed date is not possible from anyone.

  • I have been receiving H+ signals since 6pm. Im residing in Lahore and here are some screenshots.

    • I have all my suspicions, Chinese monkeys won’t be able to do it in few weeks let alone tonight. It will be a miracle if they do it today or tomorrow. They are at total loss

      • they are not at total lost, if they give better packages there coverage is huge, ill be porting out from ufone and their sucky 3g rates.

        • I have used Zong postpaid for 4 years and believe me, you really don’t want to come here. Their service standard is getting crappier by the day. I hardly remember using their gprs ever, reason being, utter crap speed. At most it would run at 20 kbps, hilarious.

  • Mobilink continued giving speeds of 8 to 10 Mbps, zong 3g is not special unless they provide well above that.
    Also the fact mobilink trial has many many users already.

  • m getting 3g in cantt bedian road area speed is not super its better than before but not SUPER SUPER!!!!!

  • صبح سے بنی گالہ میں اپنا آئی فون لے کر بیٹھا ہوا ہوں… کبھی چھت پر جاتا ہوں… کبھی درخت پر چڑھتا ہوں… مگر تھری جی ہے کہ پکڑ کے نہیں دیتا
    اب یہ دھاندلی نہیں تو اور کیا ہے؟
    جمائما سے شرط بھی ہار گیا…

  • Btw Torrents seem to be blocked on Zong Super 3G :) Getting 16Mbps but cant download any torrent!

    • Ohh presser at 4 o clock !! That means its useless to expect anything before 6pm !! Hmm
