Exactly like we reported earlier this week, Zong is now all set to launch its 4G services in Pakistan tomorrow, Saturday, the September 27th, 2014.
If sources are to be believed, Zong has purchased half page placement in all major newspapers of the country on the launch day. Company will also run heavy advertisements on TV as well as on the websites.
As we told you before, there Zong will mark the commencement of 4G services in Pakistan with a launch event in PC Hotel Karachi. This launch event might also include a musical show.
Not to mention, Zong is already running a teaser campaign that hints about 27th September launch of Zong’s 4G, check below the advertisement:
While we don’t have any confirmations about the launch cities of 4G services, but we can confirm you that users in selected areas of Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Lahore will experience 4G services on first day of the launch. It merits mentioning here that Zong is already in process of delivering 4G compatible SIMs to the customers who have 4G compatible handsets.

4G Coverage footprint is going to be decidedly low. Imagine the kind of coverage we had for 3G networks on day one, 4G coverage will be only lesser than that.
If we may tell you frankly, don’t expect anything out of the proportion at once. 4G will take time to make its mark here. Considering that Zong is still in the early stages of 3G deployments, 4G rollouts will be slow, steady and long.
