Warid to Start 4G LTE Trials from Next Week

The news that we all were waiting for is finally here: Warid is all set to launch its public trials for its 4G LTE services, we have confirmed with sources.

In the first phase, starting next week, postpaid customers of Warid will be offered free 4G LTE service as a trial. And yes, 4G services during trials will be FREE.

Almost all postpaid customers who are living in covered areas plus if they have 4G enabled handsets will be eligible to experience Warid’s 4G LTE services.

So here is how you can enjoy Warid’s 4G Trials:

  • You need to be a postpaid customer
  • You need to have Warid’s 4G SIM (instead of usual old SIM)
  • You need to be with-in Warid’s 4G coverage areas

We are told that Warid has started delivering 4G compatible SIMs to those customers who have 4G enabled handsets and if they live in 4G coverage areas. Our sources tell that this process of upgrading customers’ SIMs will get completed before the start of trials.

So if you are a postpaid customer and yet you have not received a Warid 4G SIM then you are probably not in coverage area.

According to the details we have received, Warid will offer 4G LTE trials in six cities of Pakistan including: Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Faisalabad, Gujranwala and Rawalpindi (mainly the Bahria Town). I can tell you – from the coverage maps I have seen — that Warid’s 4G coverage is good and they are planning to expand their 4G LTE footprint in other cities.

Here’s how to check whether you are in 4G coverage area or not:

  • Send an SMS: 4G to 5555 to get coverage details of your location,

Alternatively, use following method:

  •  Go to Setting-> Network Selection -> Manual Search

Warid_4G

Here if you get “Warid LTE” network sign, then you are in Warid’s 4G coverage area. Not to mention, if you are postpaid user and if you are getting this sign and yet you have not been delivered an upgraded 4G SIM then go ahead and dial 321 to get yours.

We are told that this trials will be stretched to prepaid subscriber base in the next phase. Company will be offering the option to general users to get their SIMs replaced from Warid offices to be part of the 4G trials.

Not to mention, previously corporate customers had been offered the 4G trials, and now its postpaid customer who will experience 4G trials. Prepaid customers are next, most probably in couple of weeks’ time.

Must Note Things:

  • Data Services during 4G Trials are free
  • Data services under 2G network mode (GPRS/EDGE) aren’t free, so make sure you are on 4G or buy a 2G bundle along with to avoid any surprises
  • Postpaid customers who have 4G handsets and if they are in coverage areas can get 4G SIMs from Warid Business Centres, or alternatively you can call 321 to get your 4G SIM delivered to your door step.
  • Doorstep SIM delivery can take couple of weeks
  • iPhone users have to update IOS 8 for smooth 4G functionality
  • When you insert a 4G SIM, you will get this text as a confirmation for 4G Trial subscription: Enjoy the ultimate internet experience with Warid during FREE 4G trial phase. You will be informed once trial period ends. Standard 2G data charges apply

      • ShodaModa

  • Naveed

    What the hell.. I just converted to prepaid :(( So prepaid users will not get the 4G Trial ?

    • Ammar

      Prepaid users are getting it too. I just confirmed from the helpline.

      • Naveed

        Yes I Did too confirm .. But Still waiting for my SIM .. I dont know when I am going to get it :(

        • HassaN

          in just 4 to 5 days Warid 4g LTE sim delver at your home door step

  • Geekpk

    Meanwhile Zong refuses to send me 4g sim because my phone is not in their so called PTA approved list of devices.

    • eddysan227

      phone model?

      You could just walk-in to any outlet and order a 4G replacement sim

      • Geekpk

        Nokia 625 – yes planing on doing that now.

    • Guest

      There is nothing like “PTA approved” device. Zong is bull-shitting with you.

    • AJ

      They told me they are only shipping sim replacements to the customers with handsets listed on their website..

  • Saad

    I am a postpaid customer, with a 4G enabled phones. No sim from warid. I dont know why location is relevant as I move all around Lahore during a normal day. Going to call 321

    • Usman Ahmed

      what did they say?

      • Saad

        Just spoke to 321. Told them i have not received a call or a sim yet. They asked if I have ‘requested’ the sim. I said I haven’t. He took down my details. Mobile phone model, home address. Then said I am forwarding your request. You will get a call for further verification and we will deliver you the sim asap.

  • Please tell me about warid postpaid packages it’s best or not please explain

    • Rizwan D. Rana

      Warid Postpaid Packages are not as good as to be. If u have corporate account with rental service discounts then ok otherwise Zong has the least call rates to all networks on their new Postpaid packages of Rs. 0.65 /30 sec.
      A small comparison of all Companies as under.
      Company. Outgoing on net Outgoing off net
      telenor. 1.40/min. 1.50/min
      warid. 1.50/min. 1.80/min
      mobilink. 1.30/min. 1.60/min
      zong. 1.30/min. 1.30/min
      ufone. 1.25/min. 1.60/min

      These all rates are without tax. Now it is clear and you can now decide which company has the lowest calling rates.

      • Alam

        thumbs up

  • Bilal Aahil

    This will be fun, time to buy a warid Sim card :D

  • Usman Ahmed

    i am in coverage area, i am a postpaid customer, i have a 4g handset and i havent received any call or sim.

    • Fawad Hassan

      You need to call them.

    • Saad

      Yes, please call them. I just did.

      • Usman Ahmed

        Called them. They say they have forwarded my info and if I qualify, I will get the sim.

    • Aftab Qamar

      Hey guys m using Iphone 5s model A1457 which is gevey ,can it supported LTE???

  • Shoaib

    Breaking News.Now the cut throat competition will start between Zong and Warid.End users will be beneficiaries. Tariffs will go down and quality will improve.Just wait and see.

    • Arsalan Shah

      LOL! Still waiting for Ufone Tariffs to go down after Zong,Mobilink,Telenor launched 3G! End-users still haven’t benefitted a bit with Ufone. Lets hope Warid and Zong aren’t that stubborn.

      • Shoaib

        Definitely Ufone will reduce rates at the end in cut throat competition.Just wait and see.Competition(Game) is on.

    • ads

      you seems dumb how can you compare zong with warid cheaters zong have more capacity to do unlike whom could not able to load the calls when it will lunch

      • Ahmed

        Warid will have capacity soon as well just wait they are going to procure LTE band. Along with best Ericsson solutions they are and will be best and matchless in local market.

        • Mohammad Yahya

          Jaani pak mey LTE band hi sirf 1800mhz warid ne produce ker lena hai hawa mey fire maar ke :-)
          Be practical warid ke pass limited capacity hai..LTE and voice on same band unlike zong has 2G voice 900mhz, 3G voice 2100mhz and 4G without voice over LTE 1800mhz

          • Shoaib

            Warid has 13000000 customers while zong has 26000000 customers approximately so no problem of bandwidth for Warid.Both will compete

          • Guest

            Who said you that Warid will use LTE and voice on the same band. They will use 900Mhz for 2G and 1800Mhz for 4G LTE. If you have a doubt, go to Wikipedia.

            • Mohammad Yahya

              I never fucking said it will provide Volte…keep ur eyes open while reading posts

          • Ahsan

            exactly

      • Shoaib

        Warid has 13000000 customers while zong has 26000000 customers approximately so no problem of bandwidth for Warid.Both will compete.

  • Shoaib

    Telenor, Mobilink and Ufone will also be a part of this cut throat competition.Those who will maintain superior quality will be winners.

  • Khalid Butt BNN

      • Geekpk

        I think Zong 4g speeds will improve by time as 4g speeds should be 50mbps+ .

        • Shoaib

          Definitely it will improve by time as 4G speeds may exceed 60 Mbps

        • Mohammad Yahya

          India mey airtel 4G 10mbps se above nai ja saka speed cap lagaya huwa quality services ke liye…pak mey zayada speed expect na hi karain tu behtar hai bro

    • Tanveer

      Good, what about service quality of LTE by warid? any distortion ???

      • Shoaib

        Quality will be better at such awesome speed.Growth rate will now be exponential.Service should also be started for prepaid customers.

    • Rizwan D. Rana

      That is with a few people using when majority will use it that will be decreased too that is not a dedicated speed I think so.

      • Shoaib

        OK.But with passage of time, companies will upgrade their technical infrastructure keeping in view number of customers they are adding to their network.So 4G speeds upto 60-70Mbps will be possible.

  • Naveed

    Just spoke to 321 and they have told that free trial is for prepaid users too :) and the sim will be delivered to my home address next week :)

    • Shoaib

      Excellent news.Now competition begins.

  • IrfanAmir

    i was about to leave warid :p

    • Naveed

      same here .. I just converted from Postpaid to Prepaid and was about to port out… not now :D

      • Muhammad Aamir

        At last, you have got the fruit of your patience :D

  • Atifsh

    While on zong only way to tell I’m on lte is by upload speed. But to be fair, don’t think I’m not in a official lte zone

    • Haroon

      Trust me almost that much speed am gettin on Mobilink’s 3G 24/7, with much much better ping. Bloody Zong.

      • Atifsh

        Yes i get same on mobilink but uploads are not that high on 3g.

        • Haroon

          Yes agreed. Am getting max 2 mbps upload on mobilink,.. not getting any problem while using viber or uploading pictures on flickr/dropbox. Still better than PTCL’s 1 mbps guzaara.

      • Naveed

        Yes they have not got good speed on 4G yet as the sites are limited and the users are more.. so it will get better with time but you cannot say that ZONG 3G is not better than Mobilink.. Maximum speed i got on ZONG 3G was 16Mbps :P

        • Haroon

          Well speed is not everything, quality and services matters too. Believe me for last 4 months I haven’t made single call to 111 as I can easily manage my cellular services via Mobilink’s ecare portal. Not to mention we are in different cities and am getting constant speed of 10 mbps without any fluctuations almost everywhere in Lahore even in peak hours. Btw I had really bad experience with Zong’s customer department will share some day. Btw get me that damn Zong’s employees package so that I can think about porting to ZONG! :p

        • Atifsh

          Yes i get same on mobilink but uploads are not that high on 3g.

            i m getting 2 mb speed on mobilink :(

            i m getting 2 mb speed on mobilink :(

            • Atif

              if you’re in a good signal zone, probably you need a 2GB or up package to avail good speeds, like zong who actually says one thing but you need minimum 1 GB package for their full speeds.

              • Umar Farooq

                my package is 5g for 150rs

                • Atif

                  no what was it before this mobilink deal, remember these large volumes are temp.

        • Haroon

          Well speed is not everything, quality and services matters too. Believe me for last 4 months I haven’t made single call to 111 as I can easily manage my cellular services via Mobilink’s ecare portal.

        • Shoaib

          Zong,Mobilink etc all are under process of upgrading their technical infrastructure for getting maximum speeds and improving their quality of service.As time will pass, all services eg upload speed, download speed will improve further.Just wait for 6 months.

      • sohail

        See this Zong at Lhr

        • Haroon

          Impressive, which area? My brother max gets 14 mbps in Cantt.

        • junaid

          is ur phone rooted

    • Mohammad Yahya

      I have tested zong LTE in good signals…minimum you get 12mbps that is 1500kb/sec and maximum 18mbps that is 2200kb/sec

      • Shoaib

        This is just start.These speeds will increase with passage of time.

      • Shoaib

        This is just start.These speeds will increase with passage of time.

      • jawad fiza

    THERE IS NO OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE ABOUT THIS LAUNCH. I have read press release of PTA, WARID and contacted Warid by phone too. That are CLEARLY saying that WE DON’T know any such thing. If there will be it will be disclosed in Press release on Official Website!
    TUCKY NA MAR BHAI !! Stop making people fool please!!!

  • Wasim

    why the F my LG G2 vs980 doesnt support relevent 4g frequency :@

    • Atifsh

      because its made for US use where they doesn’t use 1800/band 3

  • ahmed

    Through put of LTE is 20 to 25% better than 3G means if your are getting same speed in LTE and 3G you will have much better and smooth experience in LTE

    • Shoaib

      Generally it is 60% better than 3G.Quality will improve with passage of time but still better.

      • Umair_CL

        Pretty much, network optimisations will take time. For the moment, main focus is expansion.

  • Usman Ahmed

    Sent 4g to 5555. Got this
    Dear Customer, Warid 4G/LTE service is now available at your location.

    • Naveed

      I did that and I got the service is not available in your area but when I manually search the network, LTE network for warid is there lol

      • Ahmad Warid 4G/LTE Experience

        Hi Naveed,

        I need your help. Can you please tell me step by step process of checking network manually.

        Which andriod ver you have and which cell phone band are you using.

        It will be of great help if you could add the screen shoots one by one, will be also helpful for other users around.

        How its possible that your SMS tells you that you are not in covered area while your phone search tells you that there is a 4G LTE network for Warid out there. (Can you mention your area as were you are using this, just for info as there are over 100 cell sites in Lahore at 4G LTE, someone told me that)

        My views are: I am sure you are getting 4G LTE signal from other site which is far from the site you are connected at as network search shows open networks in a row.

        • Naveed

          I am using LG G2 D802 which supports 1800MHZ (B3) and I am searching it in Islamabad Blue Area..Just go to Network and search it manually rather using it automatically.. and it will show all the networks.. I am sure that I am able to use LTE by Warid.. I have just checked via SMS and it is telling me that the service is available in the area.. :) So Just waiting for my LTE sim now :D

  • Mujtaba

    Im a prepaid customer and i got my sim today and 4G LTE has been enabled on my sim. I think Aamir bhai apki info thory galat hai with all due respect. Warid call center say call ay thi mujay they told me all this and currently im not in 4G coverage but i got the sim delivered.

    • Umar Farooq

      prize of 4g sim?

      • Mujtaba Shaukat

        free

        • Umar Farooq

          tanks

  • Guest

    this is my prepaid sim

  • Muhammad Yasir

    if its Post paid , then it sucks!

    • Naveed

      its not for postpaid also.. its for both .. I just confirmed from 321 :)

  • adil

    Not fair yar main ne 10 bar in ko 4G ke liye phone kiaa ab main bahar chala gaya to 4G ke trial shuru kar dia hate u warid

  • Ahmed

    LTE

    • Tanveer

      is warid also provide VoLTE (HD Voice) as charges are shown or its data statistical about LTE usage volume normally ?

      • Ahmed

        I read in new in an interview of CEO its planned that HD voice (VoLTE) is planned, this will after getting new spectrum of LTE (1800 MHz) soon.

        http://www.waridtel.com/about/media/press_release.php

        • Tanveer

          thanks man. i got your point. how new spectrum will be purchased by warid ? the remaining specturm of 4G during last auction by PTA ? is it ?

          • Ahmed

            yes, and this will be even break into 5MHz and one will get Warid and one might be new operator or mobilink.

            • Tanveer

              as per information memo (IM) by PTA. after 18 months new auction will be there for last sold out 4G spectrum..Yes, Mobilink can avail 4G specturm, as it has already 10Mhz for 3G .

              • Ahmed

                Forget about official its Pakistan and we need money as max as possible

                • Tanveer

                  ha ha ha…got ur point :) So, extra spectrum will be available for warid within couple of months.:)

            • Shoaib

              May be Qtel

  • Bitter Chocolate

    Do not want to act as a wet blanket here but don’t be overly excited because 1. PTA has yet to give approval since Warid has yet to formally apply to launch LTE services. 2. Even if for an instant let’s consider they launch these services they have a very small spectrum (7Mhz I think (not sure)) which is not going to be sufficient. 3. They are not launching VoLTE services so the Data users are going to suffer from more issues.

  • HIKMAT

    Warid sms tell me that I’m not in a 4G coverage area, but here is the attached screenshot showing LTE signals plus ProPakistani previously shared my screenshot too in a previous blog. Anyhow still waiting for 4G SIM being postpaid customer. 321 says it will be delivered within one or two days.

  • Spooky

    Using it since last 3 weeks in Karachi.. Coverage areas are increasing day by day

  • Spooky

    Using it since last 3 weeks in Karachi.. Coverage areas are increasing day by day

    • Shoaib

      Coverage areas of all companies will increase day by day.I think in next 5 to 6 months, there will be carpeted coverage of all big cities by all operators.

  • Ali Real Warid 4G Experience

    Guys let me share with you the real experience – i just got my SIM last day and i am testing it like anything, i can tell you its better than ZONG and even have better coverage in Lahore as i travel a lot.

    Almost all the major areas of Lahore are covered. I have tested Warid 4G in whole DHA, at Gulberg, Mall Road, Samanabad, Bund Road, Multan Road, Iqbal Town and Thokar Niaz Baig , Johar Town

    The speedtest results in different areas of Lahore averages between 10Mbps-20Mbps. The browsing and streaming is also real quick and downloading large files, just take a couple of minutes.

    Guys this is awesome, just get your SIM and also check by calling 321 if you handset is 4G LTE enabled

    • adil

      Share a speedtest with that meter like thing man I want to see if the speed is constant ir decreases in between

    • Shoaib

      Excellent speeds.Same was expected from Warid as they have sufficient technical expertise.Now Warid can capture easily 2 million customers within 2 to 3 months.Well done Warid.

  • Eli Ehsan

    Excellent Market-First step towards getting people to use a Postpaid service! certainly a Knock-out Corporate punch within the competitors… :)

  • Umair

    Caution: 4G Lte Tariff is not for a Middle Class people only for Business Class.

    • Shoaib

      At start tariffs of Warid will be high but they will decrease gradually to compete with other 3G operators as Warid has no 3G service.As a result Zong will also reduce their 4G rates.These are the blessings of competition.

  • rdparer

    will they have 4g lte dongle usb also? im sick of ptcl evo

    • Muhammad Aamir

      Of course, they will. Otherwise, you can buy a 4G dongle in the market that supports 4G on any sim. Akin I’m using Warid and other 3G networks via Telenor E153. :D

      • Naveed

        Is PTCL support other sim and how can I use it ? I want to use ZONG 3G ? I have Evo 3.1Mbps dongle laying around

        • Muhammad Aamir

          Brother! PTCL dongles support UIM SIM whereas Telenor dongles brace GSM SIM. You can’t use a Zong SIM via EVO, but you can use via Telenor dongle (but after unlocking, which is just a piece of cake)

          • Naveed

            Okay.. I will look into it :D

          • Taha

            Amir Bhai plx tell the procedure how to unlock the telenor usb 4g dongle and tell the price of that device as well.. thanks in advance

            • Muhammad Aamir

              Could you tell me the model number of Telenor? I have an E153 dongle.

        • Expert

          Sir EVO(PTCL) AND HSDPA(ZONG 3G) are two different technologies..!!!
          YOU CANNOT USE ZONG 3G On EVO..!!!

    • Shoaib

      • Sonia Elahi

        Well Guys , i dont know but i think we should wait to see what actual packages company will offer when it will be announced, all guesses are again just guesses.

        Can anyone tell me till when Warid will be having these free trials. I hope it last long as in DHA Lahore, i reactivated my Warid SIM as company called me for 4g SIM, i am also using ZONG and my experience is that Warid is almost double the speed of ZONG

  • How many warid users do have 4G/LTE supported hand sets?

    • ahmed

      1.7 million only iphone are on Warid network so means half of them LTE compatible devices. Samsung HTC Nokia BlackBerry are not counted.
      Just like you have motorway now any people will start buying high speed vehicals.

      • Shoaib

        Very high figure of smart phones on Warid Network.What about other operators.Definitely this figure will rise sharply now when all operators are offering 3G/4G services.

        • Nauman Ufone

            yes it is a trio sim very nicely packed mine is nano SIM using Oppo Find 7a and 4G is working like a charm … also checked in model town and gulberg III area always connected constantly with very fast speed… i was driving couldn’t took the snap shot will capture some today and post it

      • Hamdani12

        u must be in a good coverage area ,.. i just tested today i will post latest results in a day or so ..

    • ali

      Can u please share ur settings

      • Hamdani12

        Sure just go to ur settings then mobile network then open preferred network type and choose 4g auto after that open access point name edit the already selected wap. Warid and change its name to Warid and access point name to Warid also then save it… It should work

  • Faraz

    Does 4G mean, there will be 3G services, automatically ????
    If one doesn’t have a 4G enabled handset, can’t one enjoy even 3G ???
    Please help !!!!

    • Junaid

      Well Faraz, if you are a Warid user than you can only enjoy 4G or 2.75G , where their 4G not works the other works and incase of ZONG yes where they dont have thier 4G working and if its 3G covered then 3G will work or you will be on thier simple edge, all other companies have good service but not all Pakistan is covered with 3G.

      As i tried Warid my self as being a test user i think Warid speed is alot better than anyone and i wish these trials go for longer time.

  • jmalik84

    this is 2nd time propakistan break that warid is going to start 4G services. first they says on 15 October and now 17 November warid is denying that new.

  • Usman Ahmed

    inaccurate info in the article – 4g sims are not available at business centres. I went to the main business centre in lahore (gulberg – not franchise).

    • jmalik84

      Right Said they saying they have no information of lunch. launch may be in first week of December.

    i have heard that without root ur device you wont able to get LTE option in settings…can u guide us a way….i have Lg g2 d802 model and have rooted the device with g3 rom an dits coming lte option for me but 2 days ago, got the zong 4g sim and its just turing on 3g (H+ ). Maybe i might be not in the coverage area.. but still… waiting for ur reply… One of my is in warid and he got their 4g sim and he has note3 n9005 model and he cant use 4g in his set…i have search the net and moslty its says u have root it to get the option…..

    • jmalik84

      As per directive of PTA your Hand set is officially available in Pakistan for 4g Services other wise you have to root your hand set for 4g services

      • jawad fiza

        I know that I have 4g set but without rooting it, is there any option….. Without rooting it…. Waiting for ur reply…. Thanks

    • Naveed

      Yes You have to root it. otherwise if you dont want to root it you just need to dial 3845#*802# and choose LTE-Only and Rat Selection and select GSM/WCDMA/LTE Auto and it will be fine.. but you have to do this each time you restart the phone… its not permanent..
      I also have a D802 and it works perfectly fine with ZONG 4G .. I am also using G3 2.1 Rom :)

      • jawad fiza

        Thanks.. I also have root my set to optimusg3 rom 1.3.2… thanks.. This means it will work with zong and warid 4g lte… but u have to
        Root ur device to use 4g lte setting…. Dial no u posted doesnt work in unrooted sets… I have check it….

  • Fahad

    GO WARID GO !!!

  • Asad Naeem

    Warid refuses to place 4G Sim request against my LG Nexus 5 by saying your Handset is not supported for Warid 4G LTE… I mean come on dudes :D

    • Naveed

      Which model do you have ? As D820 is not supported and D821 is supported :)

      • Usman Ahmed

        they dont ask which model of Nexus 5 you have – so i guess nexus 5 users will be doomed!

      • Asad Naeem

        LG-D820

      • Tabish Siddiqui

        I have D821,which supports 1800,but they say, its not supported. Ridiculous. :(
        It seems like they only loaded D820 information in their system. And not checking for D821

        • Saad R.

          I have a D821 too. Requested the sim. They didnt say anything about supported or not supported.

          • Tabish Siddiqui

            But, they refused me 1st on Twitter DM, than I called 321,they also refused.

    I have D821 Nexus 5, which supports LTE:
    800 850 900 1800 2100 2600.
    But Waird guys says that your handset is not supported. I don’t know why.
    there is other version(D820) of nexus 5 is availble, which doesn’t support 1800.
    But My one does support it. :(
    can anyone correct me, if I am wrong?

    • Abbas

      u right i have d821 and m using zong 4g.i requested for warid 4g sim but the didnt say anything like this that ur handset is not supported. they said it will be delivered in couple of days

      • Tabish Siddiqui

        first I asked them on twitter. they said the same, than I called 321, and they again said that not supported. I am shocked at it. :(

        did u mean 2g internet bundle? no i have not activated.can u please tell be settings required

        • Hamdani12

          u should call 321 warid help line ask them to send u the settings of 2G then after receiving the settings follow the steps below:

          Settings>Mobile Networks>Preferred Network Type> Select 4G/3G/2G (Auto)

          After that

          Again
          in Settings>Mobile Networks> Access Point Name> Wap.Warid>
          Change Name to Warid and also the change the APN to Warid.

          That’s all :)

          • Ali

    • sohail

      Your set needs 4g band enabling. Check olx for warid 4g as i did to enable on my s5

  • MJ

    Tabish ur handset (Nexus 5 – D821) should work well with warid 4G LTE as I have witnessed one. Please don’t get panic and wait for the launch.

    • Tabish Siddiqui

      I definitely know that it will work, but Warid guys don’t know it. :)

      • MJ

        I don’t know y they r denying its support but I am 200% sure that it will work.

    • Tabish Siddiqui

      There recent response on twitter:

  • Hamdani12

    19 Mbps is the average speed of Warid 4G LTE at Phase 8 Ex-Park View DHA and 15 Mbps at Lahore Cantt the best thing is I traveled 18 KM from Askari V to phase 8 and not for single time i was out of Warid 4G LTE coverage area.

      Excellent performance of Warid 4G LTE.If same performance persists, Warid can attract 2 million customers easily.

    • MSB

      668 RESULTS R NOT CORRECT OFFTENLY

    • Tnt4ever

      if they will , that would be a win win for both.

      Warid will get its investment back

      & zong will enjoy premium quality infrastructure with loyal customers base.

  • Usman

    I’ve been informed by Warid Customer services (at their business center, Blue Area Isb) that 4g/LTE is not compatible with Nexus 5 devices running Android 5.0 (lollipop). It’s very frustrating. Apparently, you can either enjoy the new android 5.0 firmware or 4g/LTE. Bakwas.

    • Abbas

      thats bullshit i am using warid 4g on nexus 5 running lolipop

  • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

    Well I am getting more speed on my Zong 3G than Your So Called LTE. Also Check Zong 4G LTE Speed of 25Mb in Dground Faisalabad. Warid suxxxx

  • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

    check

  • Nexus 5 User

    Warid 4g band works for 1800MHz only.

    Google Nexus 5 has a band of 1900MHz. So it wouldnt work on NEXUS 5.

    • Abbas

    Muaziz Sarif,aap ko 4G LTE SIM bahut jald farham kar dee jaye ge. Baraye maherbani apni mojuda SIM data ka backup ker lejiya taakay aap ka data mahfooz rahay.

    Got this sms from Warid, still waiting for 4G LTE SIM.
    P.S. I am a postpaid customer.

    • Naveed

      I complained on twitter and I got a call from them .. They are still saying that i will be getting the sim Shortly .. but I cannot wait anymore.. I am just porting out to ZONG tomorrow :)

        Brother wait for few days. Don’t make a decision in hurry. I am also fade-up of Warid’s excuses but I just want to check what kind of quality network & data Warid provide after their 4G LTE launch. Their 4G LTE will be free untill January, as per I know. Commercial launch is most probably from 1st January 2015. A big queation is that whether Warid will be able to continue it’s quality services or not, as they are using 1800MHz for LTE purpose only. Other services definitely will be affected with remaining spectrum. I’m waiting for 4G SIM & then will make any decision which network is best for me. I waited that long, so why not wait for a few days more. But the point is that one can clearly understand why Warid was for sale one year ago…obviously due to incompetent, non-serious & relaxed management.

    Anyone received their 4G sim in Islamabad yet? I was told I would be delivered a sim over 2 months ago. Dialled 321 and they said that sims will be delivered to all subscribers before trials begin.

    • Naveed

      I got the sim from pindi head office :) with the new postpaid connection as I ported the other number to ZONG already :) LOL

  • Usman Ahmed

    4G sim now available at Lahore Service Center. They are not too keen to give away the sim, but eventually they do if you insist.

  • Usman Ahmed

    speed is slow – staying below 4mbps on speedtest app. Gulberg Lahore.

  • ahmad

    Hahaaa nice try Warid, 3mb speed on lte? You must be kidding me.
    Every 3g provider gives around 8mbs normally, way to go!

  • Usama
