Mobilink Announces its 3G Packages

Mobilink-Logo

Mobilink has finally marked the commercial launch of its 3G service, as customers are being charged for the 3G service from today.

With this, Mobilink also announced its 3G packages that come with various bundles and options for the users to experience 3G services.

Activating 3G

Unlike other operators, Mobilink users will have to activate their 3G services. According to Mobilink, customers will have to dial *443# and select the “3G activation” option. Alternatively, send SUB to 7003 for 3G activation. Mobilink said that this activation is free.

Mobilink 3G Packages

Mobilink is offering 3 day, weekly and monthly 3G bundles for its customers. 4GB is maximum limit for the monthly bundle and is priced at Rs. 600 per month.

Interestingly, Mobilink’s 3G packages aren’t auto renewable. Meaning that customers will have to renew their data bundles every time to continue using the 3G bundles. Imagine the hassle involved in such an activation process, especially for those who will opt for daily 3G packages.

We aren’t sure if this – manual renewal process – is going to remain the same for ever or Mobilink may come up with better solutions for customers in future.

Check below all the bundles offered by Mobilink:

Mobilink_3G

** To check remaining MB’s and validity – no charges apply

Video Calling

Video_Calling_3G

*On-net only
** To check remaining MB’s and validity – no charges apply

Terms and conditions:

  • 3G bundles can be subscribed and consumed in both 2G and 3G networks.
  • 3G bundles can be consumed at 3G speed within 3G network and at best possible speed within 2G network.
  • Tax is not applicable on Mobile Internet Usage and subscription charges.
  • Offered 3G data bundles will not auto-subscribe. Bundles need to be subscribed again upon expiry.
  • Base rate is a default rate. This means that if you are not subscribed to any bundle, you will be charged according to base rate i.e. PKR 18/ MB at 2G speed even if subscriber is connected to a 3G network. Charging pulse will be 64 KB.
  • Video call will be activated by default along with 3G services.
  • The billing pulse for Video Calling is 30 seconds.
  • Currently just only on-net Video Calling is available.
  • Video Calling is only possible in 3G network and will require a handset capable of making a video call.

Postpaid Packages

Mobilink hasn’t announced it 3G packages yet. Or at least we couldn’t find them on Mobilink’s website.

I am wondering how Mobilink postpaid customers are going to use 3G, since services are being charged and 3G bundles aren’t announced yet for postpaid subscribers.

Do share your thoughts on the 3G packages and the launch in below comments.

  • Saad Durrani

    Is it just me or Mobilink has launched very expensive packages?

    • panjgoori

      Yes. Right now Telenor has best 3G packages. But one thing we have to see that afte FUP customer can enjoy unlimited internet usage at 2G speed. Not that bad.

      • Fakhre Alam

        2g is useless in my opinion.

        • Inam

          2G performance has improved dramatically after 3G has started, due to load balancing mainly. So as panjgoori said, unlimited 2G after FUP is not that bad.
          But only 4Gb is VERY BAD!

      • in which network 3G users will get 2g speed after finishing their data quota?

        edit: now i know. only on 600rs bundle. 150 bundle per bhi hota to maza ajata :P

    • khattak

      brov i guess u forgot that mobilink is expensive telecom in Pakistan:)

      • yasir

        Mobilink has offered most competitive package if you analyze bandwith and consumption in proportion to prices…….ufone has tricky charge catalogue……….but every plan doesn’t suit everyone at large

        • Aitzaz

          IMO Hybrid monthly bundle is best any network could offer.

  • Imran

    It is proven now that Mobilink was most unprepared operator for 3G. Who expected such packages and features from largest operator of Pakistan?

  • Naveed

    its just pretty much the same as ZONG packages.. so Telenor wins with the maximum bandwidth of 8GB per month but ZONG’s services are awesome compared to any network.. Waiting for Warid now :)

    • KHALID MAQSOOD

      totally agreed !!!!

    • Qasiar Khan

      Ap rehte kahan ho?

      • Naveed

        RWP/ISB

        • Qasiar Khan

          you have experienced telenor 3G or not? howz that!!!

          • Naveed

            I have tested Telenor3G and its worse.. There coverage sucks !! even though on their website , it says my area is covered when I call them they say its not covered .. Speed never exceeds from 1Mbps .. So Its really pathetic.. I would stick to ZONG for a while now.. just waiting for a Warid 4GLTE in September :)

            • Atifsh

              zong for the win, though mobilink beat them by 50 Rs if you see the 2 and 4 gb options.

            • Qasiar Khan

              but telenor packages are very GoOD ????

              • Naveed

                Packages ka kya karna hai jab coverage hee na ho aur speed hee bakwas ho tu ??

            • Qasiar Khan

              what u do with speed more then 1 mb ????

              • Naveed

                LOL Watch songs on Youtube ! on 1Mbps its slow and video buffers

    • rashid

      warid dintnot paid millions of dollars for license. So no one can set packages cheaper than warid. Hopefully warid will announc 20 to 25mbps speed at rs100/gb

      • Naveed

        LOL That is not the case dude.. They are giving 4GLTE , the speed they will be offering would be around 50Mbps :) last screenshot was shared on ProPakistani about the test going on.. :) they do charge for good service as I really love there EDGE Service.. Its the best amoung all :) so hopefully 4GLTE would be affordable and good as well.. lets wait and watch :)

        • Qasiar Khan

          yar speed 100 mbps aor rupees 1000 for 1 gb ????
          kia masla hai yar!!!!

        • AK Mustehsan

          Not 50 Mbps, my LTE gets max 30 Mbps
          I’m experiencing this from T-Mobile USA in full strength.
          But for me, the rates there are better and Telenor came with better rates, but sadly their speed ain’t that good thanks to 5 MHz network they were allocated.

          But LTE ain’t going to be cheap bro, im sure their basic offering will be above 1000.

  • Fakhre Alam

    wasn’t expecting this from mobilink

  • Adnan Najeeb

    Iss se ache to kuwait me watania k packages hain 60gb aur 100gb

  • ayaz

    telenor package are best now

  • Atifsh

    im glad i ported to zong 3 days back and didn’t waited for this. :)
    zong was slow when i try basic package. after i ported i joined 2 gb and wallah 8 to 10mb…. very happy.
    ufone was the stupidest package and quality.

    • Ahsan

      I disagree. Ufone’s 3G packages are most economical and affordable for everyone. and I am using with great speed , no disruption.

      • Atifsh

        hahaha i can only laugh sir… or you better go check other operators rates and come again and edit your post.

        • Ahsan

          do u know about mega internet bucket. Do u think that anyone can dare to launch such. https://www.ufone.com/3G/Mega-Internet-Offer/

          • Atifsh

            Two problems with your blind loyalty

            You replied 4 months late
            12 midnight to 10 am right how many will use it? I don’t so here goes your mega stupid bundle.

  • Adnan Ali

    Mobilink is not throttling speed on its packages. So the maximum available speed can be availed. Some operators continue to throttle speeds on their packages.

    Mobilink Business customers will continue to enjoy Free 3G until further notice.

    • Are you working in Mobilink?

    • Atifsh

      not true, they are randomly.
      i was getting uninterrupted 8 to 10 mb, and few days before official launch they fixed me to 1 mb.
      i cant recheck now as im not mobilink user only tested the speed while it was free.

  • JahanZaib Yousaf

    Thund pirh Gai jani

  • Bilal Aahil

    these are all prepaid? what about postpaid?? any news yet

    • insider

      Postpaid is still free to use.

  • Muhammad Ali

    weekly & 3 days package is exceptionally convenient

  • Muhammad Ali

    better than other companies hopefully speed & connectivity will also better

  • HTC ONE

    مجھے 2 جی کے پیکج پر 3 جی کی اسپیڈ مل رہی ہے

    • Guest

      This type of question should not be discussed, keep it private to mount the lifetime of your 3G enjoyment :D

      • HTC ONE

        بس یار سوچا شئر کر دوں… غریبوں کا بھلا ہو جائے گا

    • Rizwan Yaqoob

      and some are getting 2G data transfer speed at 3G locations. *Strange*

      • HTC ONE

        Damn … I’m lucky

  • Saira

    Mobilink ka GPRS/EDGE tu pooray karachi mein chalta nahi hai, i dont know about other cities, yeh 3G kya challay ga

  • Mobilink CC told me that Postpaid customers can use 3G free of cost until packages are announced.

    • Gullu urf Nawaz

      lulz k. uncle

  • Badar Iqbal

    Mobilink 3G is best because it won 10MHZ frequency. others are only 5MHZ which mean mobilink has good coverage. 300 Rs for 2GB mobile is not bad at all. Still waiting for the postpaid packages. Hope to get soon.

    • Gullu BUtt urf Nawaz Sharif

      uncle , please come out of the cave you’ve been hiding in !! coz Zong also got THE 10MHZ frequency band !!

  • Most expensive video call rates in Pakistan are by Mobilink

  • Mobilink doesn’t even send SMS alert like telenor to customers telling that their bundle is about to expire. Due to this i have wasted money several times because my GPRS monthly bundle had expired and I didn’t know.

    • Masood Akhtar

      Keep reminder of the same in mobile.I always use this facility.

  • Telenor have better charging pulse, 10kb

    Other networks will loot with 64kb

  • I liked Mobilink 2GB bundle

  • Good thing: Offered 3G data bundles will not auto-subscribe. Bundles need to be subscribed again upon expiry.

  • Muhammad Abbas

    so far its been Pathetic! Let alone EDGE it is even slower than GPRS.

    • my mobilink EDGE loads site pataakh pataakh :P

      Ufone and Telenor are very slow here. Zong is fine but hangs, stops working, disconnects on SMS/calls several times a day.

      • Ahsan

        Hi Aaqil, Ufone 3G is best , I am getting awesome speed.

    • Badar

      How can you capture screenshots pls tell me?

      • Muhammad Abbas

        on iPhone, press Power button and home button together… for Android, press and hold your power and volume down button at the same time for 1-2 seconds

    • Abdul Mueid Shahid

      bhai 3g bundle purchase kero. by default 2g hi chalayga

      • Muhammad Abbas

        bhai Its 3g package. 500 MBs for Rs. 150

        • rashid

          Every one is following warid warid is offering 500 mb foe 150 so zong followed leader warid and now mobilink.

    • Naveed

      Switch To ZONG :)

  • Usman

    Today i called mobilink help line and confirmed if i have 3g package and i moved to a 2g arae will i then charged seprately for 2g data usage or it will be compansated in 3g package.
    Help line concerned told me that u will.be charged 2g data usage seprately.

    This is very stupid

    Coutomera have to subscribe 2g and 3g packages to avaoid extra/ surprized billing

    • Abdul Mueid Shahid

      pls reconfirm the helpline person may not be updated

    • Fakhre Alam

      just asked on mobilink’s website by copy pasting ur text :-p

      • Abdul Mueid Shahid

        what i meant to say is you can use your 3g bundle in the in 2 area since priority of 3g bundle is higher but with 3g bundle at 2g area, speed will be of 2g maximum

        • Fakhre Alam

          u okay bro? my reply is for usman not u. see his comment first then read mine.

  • Rayyan Sood

    Coverage within the cities is not satisfactory. Only zong is providing good coverage but as ususl zong’s network issues still persists.

    • Mobilink is covering about 40% Faisalabad for 3G. Zong is not covering anything in Faisalabad. Zong is limited to 3 cities with limited coverage only.

  • Iqbal Hussain marwat

    Mobilink 3g packages r more expensive as compared to 2g packages. Customers will be coerced to subcribe only to monthly offer as there is nothing for them in daily, 3 days or weekly packages. Such churlishness was not expected on the part of operator like mobilink.

  • user

    Mobilink 3G speed never exceeds 2mbps

    • Naveed

      yeah thats what I am talking about :P

      • Haroon

        I’ll switch to bloody zong if they offer unlimited bundle.

        • Naveed

          Trust me 4GB is enough on a phone and they will be launching 10GB package soon.. What is your usage on a phone ?

          • Haroon

            I usually use internet with VPN ON so automatically my social usage falls into my data plan. My main use is YouTube stream, with Mobilink’s free 3G my phone normally consume like 1 gig of data regularly.

          • Haroon
            • KHALID MAQSOOD

              its 50 mb not 500 mb, check mobilink site to confirm

            • Muhammad Musa Raza

              ofcourse it will be limited to some time frame. 24 hours one is 50 Mb or its typo. itne change mobilink wale :p

    • Naveed

      Check My ZONG 3G ;) Super Cool :) Just tested now :)

      • Zaheer Abbasi

        I got this one in Abbottabad.

    • umar khan

      Chek the speed on Mobilink 3G . 1097 KB . Its means around 8 to 9 Mbps .

      • umar khan

        Mobilink 3g speed

  • Adnan

    I just talked to Mobilink customer services regarding postpaid users. they said that currently they haven’t announced the 3G packages for postpaid. postpaid users will use free 3G.

  • Adil Warraich

    I am going to convert on MOBILINK back ! :)

  • Haroon

    Will anyone tell me what will be the speed in KBs after consumption of 4 GBs, will network convert to EDGE or mobilink will throttle speed on 3G?

    • Abdul Mueid Shahid

      it will automatically throttle down to 2g after comsuption of 3g bundle

  • Guest

    I was checking my dsl speed then i see that its been hosted by waridtel i haven’t seen that before its the hint that warid testing its lte network?

    • Rizwan Yaqoob

      Its been there since May.

  • Haroon

    So far Mobilink is the winner with 4 Gig “unlimited” data bundle.

    • Rizwan Yaqoob

      I think their 2G data services are most pathetic than any other network in country.

      • Haroon

        Now they are offering “best possible speed” on 2G with 3G bundle. Their customer care said now you will experience the speed diff even on 2G network.
