A statment issued by the company said that during the fifth phase of commercial roll out, Telenor’s 3G services are launched in following cities:

  • Lodhran,
  • Khanewal,
  • Malakand,

Telenor’s 3G Coverage Map:


Telenor has said that free trial of 3G services will be offered to Telenor Pakistan’s customers in these areas for two weeks. The subscribers will be notified about the end of free 3G trial service via SMS and Telenor Pakistan’s official website.

Under the free 3G trial offer, customers can enjoy 50 MBs of free data every day. Data services on 2G will be charged as usual.

Irfan Wahab Khan, Chief Marketing Officer, Telenor Pakistan on the occasion said that Telenor Pakistan is the largest and fastest growing 3G network in Pakistan with 1.3 million customers actively using 3G services in urban, semi urban and rural areas across the country.

While explaining company’s roll-out strategy, Mr. Wahab said that Telenor has a twofold strategy to aggressively roll out 3G sites in the country: one is to increase the number of 3G sites within a city thus expanding the in-city coverage and other is to increase the number of 3G cities across the country.

    • that’s what Warid and Mobilink is doing, but Telenor want bigger share in 3G, they are trying to get more ppl involved in 3G but if services are not as good ppl may change to other operators in later times.

      • Whole sahiwal is coverd here.Only indoor coverage has problem.Telenor is making is very good move.Telenor add new cities every month….. what other companies are doing? sleeping? they are not giving any updates….

        • they probably are asleep, winter is here and they might not wake up yet.. warmth of bed is too damn pleasing

  • Although they are expanding but their coverage in the main cities is still not good , there is also a need for rate revision and competitive offers like mobilink , zong are offering!

  • Their indoor coverage is still pretty bad.. I havent been able to get more than 2 signals indoor any place in Multan.

  • Glad to see service in Murree and Natiagali. Thats a treat for tourists. Telenor, please also consider offering your services in Naran.

  • 45 cities LOL. Mardan must be in the list but i guess only 2-3 towers in the city is equipped with 3G devices. i live in the main city area but am getting very weak 3G signals

  • 1.3 million 3G customers is proof of their performance.Telenor is competing with Zong and Mobilink inspite of the fact they have only 5MHz Spectrum by maintaining superior quality.Rural areas are main target of Telenor.It seems that total 3G/4G customers may have crossed the figure of 4 Million now.However PTA may give actual figure.But Growth seems exponential.

  • Only company which is expanding the 3G seriously.All other companies don’t care, they just want to cover the main market first and then after 1-2 years maybe they will reach these numbers very bad.

  • Telonor packages are badest of kind as compared to mobilink. However telenor free social usage is usable just .kind of money hungry company.

  • How could telenor expand their 3G service in other cities b coz 3G service not available in karachi area Landhi,Korangi,malir & other karachi area.

    • “Telenor has a twofold strategy to aggressively roll out 3G sites in the country: one is to increase the number of 3G sites within a city thus expanding the in-city coverage and other is to increase the number of 3G cities across the country.”

    • Expanding 3G coverage to higher altitudes is a challenge but it’ll be available soon in AJK and other Northern regions.

  • I traveled Islamabad to Lahore 4 days ago and zong providing full 3G coverage on motorway. which is amazing. but we need service in Murree because 2G is just nothing even we cannot open google on mobile in Murree. So 3G must be there…

      • speeds are pretty good. I also used evo on motorway provided by Daewoo bus but it was totally rubbish. zong is providing exceptional speeds around 4Mbps to 10Mbps which are good speeds on the go….

      • Also no other company is providing full 3G coverage on motorway… How Telenor can say best coverage…?

    • I can confirm it as well. Zong is providing 3G coverage on Lahore-Islamabad Motorway (M2) and partially available on Lahore-Faisalabad Motorway (M3). Speed varies between 2 Mbps to 7 Mbps.

  • telenor ke service sirf g t road pr ho skti hai, lekn telenor ke 3G service jhelum mein nhi hai, sub bkwas hai aur yeh 45 cite wali khani b bkwas k ilwa kuch nhi
