Mobilink to Commercially Launch its 3G on July 18th


Mobilink has finally announced a date for the commercial launch of its 3G services. According to details, company will be commercially launching its 3G services in the country on July 18th, 2014.

Mobilink had been offering free 3G services to its customers in eleven cities till now.

There were growing concerns about delay in commercial launch of Mobilink’s 3G services, but company had explained that the delay in 3G launch was part of 20th anniversary celebrations of Mobilink’s operations in Pakistan and that Mobilink wanted to offer extended duration of free 3G services to its customers.

Mobilink, as per confirmations we have received, is sending out a text-message broadcast to communicate its customers that free 3G services won’t be available from July 18th.

Here’s a screen of such text-message that is received by a Mobilink customer:



A similar message has also been displayed on Mobilink’s website, which is as following:

“Dear Customer! Mobilink 3G services will be charged from 18th July. To avail 3G offers please dial *443# or call 111 for further details”

Mobilink claims to have 3G coverage in 11 cities of Pakistan, which makes its largest 3G operator yet. These cities – with Mobilink’s 3G coverage – are:

  • Karachi
  • Lahore
  • Islamabad
  • Rawalpindi
  • Multan
  • Faisalabad
  • Quetta
  • Peshawar
  • Gujranwala
  • Sialkot
  • Hyderabad

Clearly we aren’t sure yet about 3G packages that Mobilink has planned to announce, but we will update our readers as soon as we get any word.
