Zong 4G Packages Get Leaked Ahead of Launch

After publishing the coverage maps of Zong’s 4G network, we have now the details about Zong’s 4G packages with us already – i.e. before the official launch ceremony of Zong’s 4G network.

According to details we have got, Zong will be offering below five 4G packages:

  • Monthly Premium 2GB: Rs. 350 per month
  • Monthly Premium 4GB: Rs. 650 per month
  • Monthly Premium 10GB: Rs. 1500 per month
  • Monthly Premium 20GB: Rs. 2500 per month
  • Monthly Premium 30GB: Rs. 3500 per month

30GB data might sound too little for 20Mbps speeds of LTE network (or more), but considering the data limits of other wireless broadband service providers, we believe that Zong’s 4G packages are here to give PTCL’s EVO a tough competition.

While Warid’s 4G is about to see the light of the day in two weeks from now, one can expect some kind of fluctuation in above mentioned Zong 4G packages.

Not to forget, these 4G packages aren’t official and must not be considered as a final word.

Just in case if you are wondering, source of these 4G packages from Zong is a shortcode on Zong’s network through which customers will be able to subscribe to 4G packages.

        • aamir7

          That’s a leak sir. Anything not on their website isn’t official.

          • Muhammad Ashraf

            any information appears on zong connection that;s mean it is valid and true. As far as website is concerened may be their webmaster is enjoying weekend holiday :)

            • aamir7

              I am not arguing about validity or authentication — but anything that goes public ahead of scheduled time is called a leak.

              • Hasaan

                Aamir bhai did we required any new sim for 4G??

                • aamir7

                  Yes, you will have to get a new 4G enabled SIM to use 4G.

                  • Hasaan

                    Ahan!!! Thanks Mate (Y)

              • Muhammad Ashraf

                incase information revealed by third party then you can call it leak but in this case information is being released on launching date & is being released by zong itself

              • qamar

                amir bhai dont care about such illetrate people u should continue ur work.i think such kind of cheap comment is an attempt to deprive us from info and tech.

          • Naveed

            If the code shows the options , its official ?? isnt it :)

          • Mustafa

            From where i can read the older posts? Of propakistani

          • Ayesha Waseem

            No its not a leak. zong is already telling us that we can buy these packages then how its a leak.

  • Haroon

    My phone GT-i9505 doesn’t show LTE/4G option, where as it shows CDMA/GSM mode. Any idea?

    • Naveed

      Is it rooted?

      • Haroon

        Nope.

        • Naveed

          Hmm .. *#*#4636#*#* and select LTE/GSM/WCDMA mode in preferred network option after selecting Phone information option

          • Haroon

            This code isn’t working, this start with * and ends with *. Making a direct voice call.

            • Mustafa

              Then download phone testing app from Google play

              • Guest

                am gettin this

              • Haroon

                am getting this

                • Naveed

                  Strange :-s its working for me.. try to google it as my friend’s S4 is not showing this option as well

                  • Haroon

                    Zong’s customer care says it will start showing LTE mode once 4G network is detectable. I guess I have to wait till tomorrow.

                    • Naveed

                      Oh I C ! But I am having the option in my LG G2 and LTE networks of Warid and ZONG are coming in the search list :)

                    • Haroon

                      Both of ’em. Lucky you. I guess you are in Isloo?

                    • Naveed

                      Yes I am in Isb :) I will get a 4G Enabled sim on Monday from the franchise and post the screenshot :)

                  • Zaki Uddin

                    that’s the problem with samsung pakistan, unless you have a US/EU version you are pretty much stuck with 3G only, or you have to pay more to get 4G compatible phone!

                • Mustafa

                  Go to Samsung service center

                • gwachi gaan

                  once u put 4g compatible sim, the options should appear. If they dont, set your CSC to international type.

            • Naveed

              Its working for me ?? try it again , i just tried that

    • Zaki Uddin

      Samsung pakistan devices mostly don’t come with LTE radio for LTE compatibility you have to pay more, check out homeshopping, as they have different phones, one with 3G only is cheaper than 4G supported!

    • Ali Asghar

      Root it, And flash Google Play Edition Android 4.4.4 ROM on your i9505, Problem solved, if you need it TouchWiz ROM, Flash Eudemony v5.1, It has an option for LTE/GSM/WCDMA auto mode. But Google Play Edition ROM is perfect, it has seperate option for LTE only mode.

  • Muhammad Aamir

    If the news is really true then it’s not less a gift to the people of Pakistan :D

  • Shoaib

    Rates are very cheap

  • Muhammad Ashraf

    after revealing affordable 4g data plans, now we are waiting to have affordabale 4g enabled phone too from zong

  • SUPER BRAINS

    RIP EVO

  • Fakhre Alam

    for 3500rs package one has to load credit worth almost Rs 4500. to much expensive

    • SUPER BRAINS

      well that is the fault of the government not ZONG

  • Fakhre Alam

    these networks has to keep in mind that ptcl dsl has reached most of the cities and towns of pakistan and most of the people who need internet at home or offices are already using ptcl dsl for the said purpose. if these new 3G and 4g operators wish to grab customers from ptcl they will have to lower their prices and increase the cap upto 100GB atleast.

    • Ali

      Dude, 3G and 4G is not for a permanenet use, Its an alternative, a secondary way to use internet. primary will stay as dsl or wimax.

    • Haroon

      I think zong will come up with unlimited* data plans soon, for network like zong bandwidth isn’t a prob. Remember they use to offer unlimited edge for 10 Rs/daily on prepaid.

      • Naveed

        There is a huge difference between EDGE and 3G/4G dude.. Waiting desperately for a speed test of their 4G :)

        • Haroon

          well that’s obvious, my point here is that BANDWIDTH isn’t a prob for commies (china mobile). If PTCL can offer 75 gigs for 2 years on wireless and in that monopoly. Lets wait and see they fall for quality or Quantity. I guess for bloody ZONG its QUANTITY.

      • Ali Asghar

        There will be no Unlimited plan on 3G/4G at least untill 50/100mbps internet speeds will be considered like a dial-up of past in future.

  • Shoaib

    Quality matters much.If you get superior download speeds at these rates, these are amazing packages.

  • JamshedMinhas

    4G lunched by Zong, today. And i am using with Zong Sim, Becus if you ant to use to Zong 4G, you must first buy new Zong Sim.

    • Tanveer

      how much speed you are getting with zong 4G LTE network with supported sim ?

      • Hashim

        I was getting 25Mbps Down/ 10 Mbps Up on 4g LTE

  • Khan Zada

    Official Rates are available at topthisweek,com website. They are claiming that they have official rates and plans of Zong 4G and they vary from yours.

    • fendi

      *6464# rates same as propk.

  • Hamza Mustafa

    speedtest bhi share kro do screenshot kr k

    • Naveed

      Ya lo yar .. dekh loo screenshot ! pathetic 4G :( I was really happy with ZONG’s 3G :( They have really disappoint me with their LTE :(

      • Hamza Mustafa

        ohoho yh kis city main hai or kis area main or aap konsa mobile use kr rhy ho ?

  • Hashim

    Zong 3G @ Johar Town Lahore

  • Haroon Rashid

    What’s more important is delivery of the services in standardised manner. This means commitment by the company for the necessary infrastructure in adherence to the 4G/LTE duly endorsed by the regulatory authority. Before advertising the product the service provider Mobile Company should have in hand a LOI or Commencement Certificate for 4G/LTE in the defined areas. Without which they will not enter into a contractual binding with the customer, and charge them. It should be entirely free, un-commital, as there could be possible outages, break downs and many things. The other major issue is the infrastructure of 4G/LTE will drain the handset battery very quickly. I suggest the regulator being the licensing authority, the beneficiary of the Pie for spectrum auction should protect the consumer from absence of a Code of Conduct of Advertising. The Code of Conduct for Advertising has given loss for billions of Rupees to naive consumer, citizens of Pakistan from the Pre-Paid Cards which went bank rupt and people of this country common man beared the loss for billions of rupees. No one came to rescue, neither the regulatory authority, nor the Financial Regulator SBP, nor the SECP. Only the KSE members and holders of the Callmate suffered losses for share value could be billions. Today mobile companies advertise services and extract prepaid cards without any liability for any authority to protect the naive buyer of the prepaid card. Is there an answer to this?
