QMobile Website Goes Offline for Exceeding Bandwidth Limit

A company that spends billions of rupees on TVCs and other marketing activities and yet if its official website goes offline due to insufficient resources is a huge shame.

Due to insufficient bandwidth that QMobile has bought — to save couple of thousand rupees — the hosting company has apparently shut down the traffic coming to its website. Not only this, the hosting company is bluntly displaying “Bandwidth Limit Exceeded” notice to everyone who visits the website of one of the largest phone vendors of Pakistan.

Here is what you are greeted with when you visit qmobile.com.pk:


It would be interesting for you to learn that QMobile’s website is down for this reason for several hours now, in fact at least for 16 hours.

A company of QMobile’s magnitude should have dedicated server for its website. Having a redundant solution could be a plus to make sure that their website is never ever offline.

But for now, buying a hosting plan with double the bandwidth will do.

    Such a shame, probably they should be given donations now to get a few more GB’s of bandwidth. A company of this caliber should manage their own servers.

  • lol :P Still offline – QMobile Cheap Phones, Cheap Company & Cheap Everything…

    • Fakhre Alam

      at least they are providing budget phones to those who can’t afford famous brands.

      • Shoaib

        Agreed.More customers want to visit this site for purchasing economical 3G enabled phones.They should increase their bandwidth.

    Jitnay paisay yeh log actors ko day rahay hai is ka 5% bhi agar VPS server par laga day tu yeh nahi hoga. Looking the website is hosted on shared servers that’s why bandwidth exceeds.

    Shameful to Qmobile tech team.

      5%? It would not even take 0.01% :-)
