After starting LTE trials for corporate and postpaid users in November, company had announced free unlimited trials for prepaid users earlier in December.

Not to be mentioned, Ericsson — a market leader for wireless data traffic all around the world — is Warid’s sole technology partner in Pakistan for the rollout of the LTE network.

To ensure that the company continues to offer its users the most advanced technologies, Warid will be investing around US$500 million over the next five years to expand its network across the country.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Muneer Farooqui, CEO Warid Telecom, said,

“Over the years, Warid Telecom has developed a reputation for breaking new ground in Pakistan’s mobile landscape. We have always remained at the forefront of innovation: our decision to transform directly from 2G to LTE technology is a reflection of this spirit of innovation.

With this move, Warid becomes the first mobile operator in Pakistan to transform directly from 2G to LTE technology.

Moving forward to 2015 and beyond, we will continue to invest in premium technologies and network infrastructure to ensure service excellence to our patrons who have always held us close to their hearts.

I am confident that with the trust and loyalty by our customers, Warid Telecom will rise to stellar heights within this new telecoms paradigm.”

  • Alif Anaar

    Let the competition begin :D

  • Geekpk

    Warid 4g speeds dont go above 20mbs and they call it 4g.

  • Taha

    Hoping warid launching 4G LTE dongle too!

    • A.Samad Ghanchi

      why waiting for 4g dongle … just buy 3g/4g router

      • Smartchoice.pk

        Dongle and router are two separate things. Telcos would give hard time to PTCL once they come with their 3d/4g enabled dongles

        • Muhammad Musa Raza

          Dangles usb plug and play and also cloud like devices are easily available in market. I got tplink m5250. It’s very good.

          • monis

            how much did you pay for tplink m5250 ???

            • Muhammad Musa Raza

              5500 rs

          • Taha

            4g lte supported on this device or not.. Which sim you are using on this device and how much kbs or mbps u getting..reply plz

            • Muhammad Musa Raza

              All Sims works on it. Am using telenor. 50 rs unlimited daily package. I get around 1.5 MB on I’m and around 500 kb to 1 MB on torrents. I had ptcl nitro before threw it away. It’s only 3g supported. You can Google it specs. Model is tplink M5250. 1.5 MB/sec unlimited is more than enough for me so I don’t care about warid lte.

              • Taha

                I went tecno city today tplink 5350 is available with the almost same price tag..where as i also seen tplink ma 260 with 3400rs price tag but it is non wifi.. May be i go for it..some china made is also available but dont hav warranty, Thanks for the review.. Wht abt vibr and whatsapp is tht working or not thro wifi plus tell how u charge your telenor card thro tplink dvice or not..

                • Muhammad Musa Raza

                  Yes that’s also available here at same price but it’s non wifi. I recharge through easy load but u can also put sim in cell to recharge it. If someone have better solution than do share :)

                  • Taha

                    Mobilink 3G is giving 7gb in 60 rupees used it once on my phone getting 500to800kbps downloading..easy load is better option. I had wingle it was pathetic..which telenor pkg ur using..i hv seen thre is 8rupee bundle for 5000mb but it is timed based pkg..where your friend bought dvice from…

                    • Muhammad Musa Raza

                      Problem with mobilink is limited time offer. If those packages become permanent then they are awesome. I use telenor 50 rs unlimited daily. So it’s 2000/month with all taxes. I live in multan and bought device from khan center

                    • Usman

                      Can you please tell us the name of the package that you are using which charge 50rp with unlimited bandwidth. There is no information on telenor’s website.

                    • Muhammad Musa Raza

                      If you read in terms and conditions it’s mention there. Without package 50 rs is cut and rest of day is free.

                    • Taha

                      Bro..please share the speedtest result by taking screenshot of the speed youre getting..plus i wanted to know is tht your device tplink got heat up when you surf the internet or not?

                    • Kashif Ali

                      which pkg are u talking about….. giving 7 GB in 60 rupees on mobilink. would u plz share info about it……

                    • Taha

                      Yes chk out mobilink 3g bundles on their website and you will find one

              • sufyanshoaib

                I bought TP-Link 5250 a month ago. I have tried ufone, mobilink, and zong on it, but just ufone is working without any change in configuration, rest are still no connected. Did you change any configuration for zong/mobilink sims? ..

                • Muhammad Musa Raza

                  Nope. It worked without any settings

      • Rashid Qamar

        What is 3G/4G router? tell me detail?

    • Tnt4ever

      Buy dongle from homeshopping.pk or from symbios.pk

      Search huawei on above websites

      • ALi

        4g LTE dongles are still unavailable in Market

    • MJQ

      why use dongle in the first place if you are using a 4G handset then you can simply make a hot-spot rather than spending on the dongle device. Aik ticket main 2 mazay.

      • Taha

        Bro..hotspot never gives you such speeds tht yu get on usb dongles!

      • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

        hotspot and usage also consumes alot of handset battery

  • Aamir

    from where one can find its coverage map ???

    • Hashim

      You have to send 4G to 5555 or dial *777# and select Coverage Area

  • A.Samad Ghanchi

    No coverage in most of areas of KARACHI … what the meaning of official launching without coverage ?

    • zorkor

      Takes time to cover a huge city like Karachi.

    • Ææmįr Mōhâmmåd

      i agree with you , since they didnot invested loads of dollar in purchasing the license , the least we were expecting from warid is to have a Major coverage in major cities , they’re lazy as all the sheiks are , they just think having Billions of Dollar in their pocket is enough to run the business !!

  • Ammar

    Having LTE only is great. It means the majority of people with low end phones don’t get to choke the network and service remains top notch as it has always been with Warid.

    • ScarletCrimson

      Is Warid really that good? I’ve been thinking of buying a second SIM along with Mobilink and I’m confused between Telenor and Warid.

      • Atif Ahmed

        Don’t ever think to buy Telenor for superior network quality, telenor is dumb in giving gud quality network, Warid is far ahead better in network quality. i’m now permanent warid customer after experiencing Telenor, and much more satisfied.

        • Bilal Iqbal

          Where u live. Having 3-5 mbps is LOW…:/

    • Qaisar

      don’t going to read ur comment

    This is not offered to all customers in Karachi. Coverage is still limited.

    Have been using warid 4g lte in khi from 15 dec.
    Loved the experience. Great coverage in my area and good speed ! Also luckily i have been using zong 4g to, atleast for me there was not much of a difference between the t

    Below is a warid speedtest !!!

    • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

      hey which handset are you using?

      • hasan

        Yaar i am using samsung galaxy alpha g850f ! Why ???

        • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

          i have a note 3 LTE but its not supported yet :/

          • Ahsan Ali

            Model No?

            • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

              9005

              • hasan

                Yaar when i went to the business centre warid k, they were very clear that only note 4 and alpha is officialy supported by warid 4g lte and other handsets are not currently working untill samsung makes their software compatable . According to them its because of some software thing at samsung”s end not warid. NOW I HAVE NO IDEA K WO KITNA SAHI KEHRAY THAY.
                Luckly i had purchased the alpha . Same issue is with my sister’s s5.
                I have read on various forums regarding some software flashing which makes this issue come to an end and some other settings. It would be better if u look for them urself…

                • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

                  Yes you are right….after some digging and help….i got the whole issue sorted out. …The thing is all those countries who didnt have lte while samsung launched their mobiles like s5 note 3 (LTE models) dont have lte options in their network settings. ..its because our sets still think zong and warid are whitelisted for 3G/2G….Samsung will update it sooner or later to enable the operators data base of warid and zong as 4G lte and then our mobiles will detect their sims as lte enabled….

  • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

    here comes the competition 4G :)

    • Mehwish

      Oh guys you need to wake up really, They are not 4G they are LTE, and i just read this fact that LTE is actually true 4G and its amazing because ZONG is a step behind – you may check it yourself and make a screen shoot here

      http://www.androidauthority.com/4g-vs-lte-274882/

      • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

        I know what is 4G and LTE…And by definition both zong and warid are offering LTE (4G)…..NO one is behind here…..there are different standards for these techs and alot of debate…but to cut short…I can assure you that by 4G in PAK by zong and warid…it means 4GLTE for both.

        • ijaz

          Zong is FDD LTE and Warid is TDD LTE. Anyone confirm?

          • kanidefurqan

            both are FDD LTE, TDD LTE is not used in pakistan

  • Taha

    Arabs won the race over chinese.. Didnt paid a penny for 4G LTE license.. Lol gud work warid.. Love the warid quality premium network.

    • kanidefurqan

      They(warid) paid in start with the agreement. its Pakistani govt who did it.

    • qasim

      call 03334454432 and get 4G activated on ur handset by visiting G31 Hafeez Centre.

    • Umz

      Can you post the exact model number of your phone?

      • khizar

        my model is G900F

    • Atif Ahmed

      There could be a problem of network band on your phone, may be it’s American network based phone, that’s why it is not supported in Asian countries

    • M Ali

      the phone should support LTE over 1800 Mhz

    • khizar

      my model is samung S5 G900F

      • Mohammad Wasim Cheema

        khizer i have resolved the thing. Its not a rocket science, just text me 03218660256 (whatsapp & Viber) and i will tell you all the solution. No need to root or install the other things.

  • tahir

    Warid dnt show anything about its LTE on its site and no coverage map available anywhere.

    Warid Website updated and Coverage maps are up, pretty amazing coverage for Lahore.

  • M. Mashhood Iqbal

    very disappointed by the packages :(

    • ALi

      You cannot compare the cost of BMW with Suzuki Mehran

      • M. Mashhood Iqbal

        I am not saying about cost but about data caps :/

        • Rizwan Yaqoob

          Caps are there to assure QoS.

        • Shoaib

          Data Caps will increase with passage of time.

  • Technocrz!

    Anyone knows the coverage areas in karachi

    • HassaanM

      Warid has updated its website with coverage maps for LTE. Check it out there!!

      There you go Junaid paa jee :P its actually being pulled off from website coz there coverage is pathetic specially in Karachi

  • Programmerguy

    Peshawar is skipped again. Very sad.

    • NSN

      Peshawar is not skipped many sites are swapped with 4GLTE sites and with in few months u will enjoy 4glte in peshawar.

      • Rama

        Is NSN the telecom vendore for Warid’s LTE?

        • NSN

          No going to take over Moblink in North soon.Ericsson is the Vendor of Warid

  • BadarUI

    Well done warid!

  • Usman Ahmed

    these packages will cover both LTE and EDGE right? As LTE coverage is not 100%

  • jawwadjafri

    Disappointing coverage in Karachi. Why launch in a major city when you dont have it covered

  • Rana Jazib Masood

    Have been using LTE since the 28th November and what a wonderful experience it was, experienced far better speeds in Islamabad (up to 33mbps) compared to Lahore (max 10mbps). Used 40+Gb of data and always worked seamlessly. Hats of to warid for managing all this is a single 10 mhz band. Speedtest screenshots and data usage screenshot is attached

    • Tàhír Mëhmõõd

      Enjoy…

  • Tàhír Mëhmõõd

    Warid has tech neutral license …. So can it launch LTE in Azad Kashmir?

    • monis

      no

      • Tàhír Mëhmõõd

        Why??? :(

        • Rizwan Yaqoob

          Operators will provide 3G/4G services in northern and upper areas in coming months. Mark my words!

          • Tàhír Mëhmõõd

            Hmmm but coming months can b as long as few years …lol

  • Shoaib

    Now the stiff competition has started between all operators.Warid should reduce its rates further and 20GB data volume should be available at Rs 1000/.Official USB dongles should also be introduced for staying competitive in market.Now it is expected that total 3G/4G customers will reach 10 million in next 4 months.

  • namsu

    Why are Warid’s LTE rates so cheap?
    I mean Telenor is charging Rs 1000/per month for 8GB on their 3G network.
    Same case with other operators.

    • Rizwan Yaqoob

      To attract more customers. Don’t forget most number of smartphones in Pakistan aren’t 4G compatible. 4G enabled handsets are costly whereas 3G handsets starts from Rs.8000 these days.

      • Chaudhry Khalid

        Mobilink have 30 GB data in Rs. 600

  • HIKMAT

    I didn’t get above 12MB/s speed anywhere in Lahore except at their main business center (where 20MB/s was the speed). In Islamabad, I got minimum speed of 8-9MB/s with full signal bar. In Lahore it drops every time to 2G where it costed me alot. I’m not happy with their 4G LTE. When I have to make a call, I’ll have to wait for about 30 seconds to connect, WTH. Before 4G LTE trials, it was smooth but now their quality gone very bad. My rating: 5/10. Sorry Warid but it is a fact. Thinking my options.

    • Mirza Moazzam Baig

      you r right finally at some point Warid’s customers have face the consequences . . . with reduced call qaulity … as they are running both of things on same frequency . . .

      • Rizwan Yaqoob

        It’s a fact Warid customers will face reduced quality of services with the passage of time. Warid has 2x5Mhz spectrum from 900Mhz band, which might get congested as entire voice traffic is shifted to it. Warid has just 2×8.8Mhz in 1800Mhz band, which means they can offer LTE services but for limited subscribers.

        • Shoaib

          Warid can add more BTS(Cells) easily in areas where load will be more by using same spectrum.Adding new cells is a easier solution which Warid will adopt..

          • Rizwan Yaqoob

            Installing a new cell site isn’t a solution for Warid. Sooner or later they have to increase/purchase spectrum.

    • Muhammad Aamir

      LOL! 12MB/s really???? 12MB/s equals up to approx. 140Mbps. MB/s aka Mega Byte per Second whereas Mbps aka Mega Bits Per Second.

      • Arslan Ejaz

        Yeah that’s what I am thinking about either it is MB or Mb @HIKMAT

      • HIKMAT

        Every time I get confused in it. Actually I’m quoting the speed what SpeedTest app gives on my LG G2. I think it is Mbps. Thanks for the correction & sorry for the misstatement. :)

  • Adeel

    Impressive packages, zong offers 4GB bundle at rupees 650 and warid offers 5GB bundle at rupees 500, Nice
    Warid made his ground, I am a zong user and must say that zong will be failed in coming days due to his expensive bundles.
    Hats off to Warid

    • Mirza Moazzam Baig

      But bro in the long-run warid will fail cuz ultimately their single frequncy band (running both 4g and celular) will be unable to bear the traffic . . and customers will be affected with reduced speed and call quality … people have already started complaining about call quality since the public trials of 4g …. and this will get worse with the time….. and if you comapre zong’s 4g you will find that zong’s speed benchmarks are higher than those of warid

      • Muhammad Aamir

        You have not being paying attention brother. If you’ve ever read the previous articles of Warid 4G on Propakistani where it is written that Warid has total 12 million customers in which half of them are inactive.Also, they have only 30,000 of 4G LTE customer or less. (not confirm). Warid has a prowess to deploy 4G LTE easily and I hope they will get success. I had been using their EDGE for 3 years and downloaded a lot of data. 100MB file just an hour with a constant speed of 26KB/s throughout a day, a month even a year. Perhaps, I’m wrong, because I didn’t use the Warid 4G LTE trial. Time will speak itself. Let’s See!

          Definitely, the board of directors are already think about it, warid is a multibillion organization and they choose the best company to rolling out it’s LTE service, I think warid will easily beat the Chinese telecom after all Warid is the best 2G service provider in Pakistan, zong’s 2G data service is below average and it’s Ping in 3G is little bit high, and it’s bad for the video calls.
          I am sure that Warid will roll out it’s LTE service faster and I am waiting for its LTE service.

        • Mirza Moazzam Baig

          Yeah lets see what happens when the time goes on….
          but i’ve used warid’s 4g trials . .and the best speed that i got was 20Mbps which was while sitting inside warid business center gulberg, lahore .. . otherwise i rarely crossed 9Mbps Mark…. whereas on Zong i consistently got more than 25Mbps .. . .i could really feel the difference.

      • HassaanM

        To add to what Aamir said. Warid has slots in both 1800 Mhz band and 900 Mhz band. Before, Warid was using both bands combined for its voice and data services. Now it has shifted voice to the 900 Mhz band while LTE is up on he 1800 Mhz band. You can test it as well. When in an area with LTE coverage you make a phone-call the network status changes from LTE to 2G or GSM. And as Aamir says, Warid’s significantly smaller but loyal (highest ARPU generation in all telcos) customer base allows them to go through with this dual-band plan. If, however, there is a sudden, huge influx of customers in the near future then your theory can be deemed plausible.

        • Shoaib

          Warid can add new cell sites where customers will be more and will also go for purchasing new spectrum in next auction.All depend on number of data customers they attract.But they have all options to retain these customers.

  • M. Mashhood Iqbal

    They must have given more data because its 4G LTE not 2G or 3G…. even 8GB data in 3G is scrap… what is the advantage of 20Mbps if u have only 8GB maximum data… :/

    • Mirza Moazzam Baig

      and even that 200mb & 300mb 4g bundle are jokes.

  • asim

    I won’t think that Warid will be more prominent because the speed and packages are not reasonable will let’s hope for the best

  • Saad Durrani

    So, if the much-touted 4G LTE is not available, you are stuck mind-numblingly slow speeds of 2G EDGE. No, thank you!

    • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

      thats where zong has an advantage as its 3G is available where its 4G isnt….

      • Mirza Moazzam Baig

        and also the fact that zong’s 3g speeds are much higher than any other networks’… so falling back from 4g to 3g could hardly be felt … unless you r uploading something

        • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

          agreed.

  • Khizar

    I purchased Samsung S5 4G LTE. SM-G900F.. I place warid 4G sim in phone but operator tell me that ur phone is not supported in our system. Now tell me the solution how can i use 4G in my 4G enabled mobile phone.My phone support 1800 Mhz but still there is no LTE option.. My contact 03217077313

    • Guest

      Probably they haven’t updated their system. SM-G900F is fully compatible with Warid’s 1800 band. Go to their franchise with your device’s spec sheet, this is certainly an error. Btw, where do you live? It might be a coverage issue.

    • hasan

      either root ur devise or w8 for the new firmware that might show an lte option….i did root and enjoying 4g lte :)

    • hamza

      I was also having the same prob. Just ignore those pple. Go to settings, more networks, mobile networks and see in the network mode do u get a lte option (lte/wcdma/gsm auto) if yes select that option and u can use lte if not then u have to flash ur phone with a official firmware from sammobile.com i was having the same prob but i flashed and it started working. Hope it helps ya

    • S.A

      Just try this code *2222# and from.options select back then select key input Q.then.again back select from list debugg then back Band selection Lte.

  • kara

    Pathetic. ..they dont have patches for most phones being sold in the market. All phones with LTE compatibility imported from US or UK are deemed incompatible. .CS advises iphone 6 and 6 plus only…..kaash yeh Karachi aaatay .Ouu industrial areas dont permit this luxury without a private guard.

    what Frequency does Warid LTE has?

    • Muhammad Abrar Ali

      1800mhz

  • Chaudhry Khalid

    I have Tp link 5250 (3G router) , it’s great device for 3G sim, I bought it Rs. 5400 1 month ago but some days ago my friend bought it in Rs 5000,
    If you want full detail then Google tp link 5250,

    • monis

      what about tplink 5350 ?
      any idea about it ?

      • Muhammad Ashraf

        the best is you buy two different devices from tplink , one wr 3040 is worlds most portable battery powered fully functional router having price of rs.3000. This device has bandwith control, parental control and firewall and buy usb 3.75 g modem supports upto 22.1 Mbps model no. ma260 price Rs.3400,

        • Taha

          Bro, ma 260 is not 4G LTE enabledenabled..do yu hav ma260?

          • Muhammad Ashraf

            sir, at the moment 4g modems are not available in markets, but this device supports upto 22.1 Mbps that is also too much

      • Chaudhry Khalid

        Tp link 5350 is same as 5250, only deffirance is 5350 have LCD screen, & it’s price is 6200, so I suggestion you to buy 5250. Absolutely working fine,
        If any friend want any info about this device then mail me at [email protected]

        • monis

          can you confirm me one thing ?
          can we fix the connection to 3g only like we do in adroid
          gsm/wcdma & WCDMA only ?

        • sufyanshoaib

          I bought TP-Link 5250 a month ago. I have tried ufone, mobilink, and zong on it, but just ufone is working without any change in configuration, rest are still no connected. Did you change any configuration for zong/mobilink sims? ..

  • Khurram

    Am unable to use Warid LTE on Note3 Lte version(n9005), LTE option not visible

    • MJ

      Hi Khurram, I am Using Warid LTE on my S4 I9505 by following method. it should work on ur Note3 as well.

      1. *#0011# (Enter this on dial pad, it will enable Service Mode)
      2. Click Property Button and Select “Back”.
      3. Again Click Property Button and Select “Key Input”.
      4. Enter “Q” and press ok.
      5. Again Click Property Button and Select “Key Input”.
      6. Enter “0000” and press ok and wait for few Sec.
      7. From the list select “LTE” by touch/click.
      8. From the list select “PREF MODE Set” by touch/click.
      9. Select “GWL” from the list.
      10. Click “GWL! PLZ REBOOT”

      and plz don’t forget to change ur “apn” setting to “lte.warid”.

      It will not enable any view able option in “Mobile Networks” but will force ur phone to LTE Network. I think samsung will push a patch/update for this option in Pakistan for Warid Network.

      • Ahmad Nauman Mirza

        Yes exactly thats how it will be done….until samsung updates so that LTE option becomes available in network settings.

      • Khurram

        Thanks it worked for me too

    • Hashim

      seems a glitch

    • Yasir Gilani

      What’s the fun in fooling this ultra jaahil nation? It is just an initial jump which settles down to actual figures as the test progresses.

    • Tàhír Mëhmõõd

      Full result?

  • Chaudhry Khalid

    8 GB with 4G

  • Khurram Khalid

    what kind of LTE is it?
    1. Low speed: I have gotten max 5mb in Lahore
    2. Shifts to edge when on call or sending/receiving sms
    -Due to shifts in edge and LTE, battery is gone in no time
    -No internet while in the call

    I have been loyal customer of warid since 10 years, and been waiting for LTE since long, but at the end disappointed. I think Mobilink has consistent and good speeds in Lahore. I need to port out.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    • test

      i have ported out from Mobilink to Warid, it’s quite satisfied with Warid more packages are coming just wait Warid Will rock as buying more spectrum in June

    TP Link Announced 4G Router, LTE-Advanced Mobile WiFi M7350.

    might be work with warid 4G.
    warid also introduced 35GB data volume just Rs. 3000/Month. with share facility.

    • HassaanM

      3G4G providers are still a long way out in competing with broadband internet. They offer speeds, yes, but their data caps are horrible. Who would move to Warid’s 35GB when the can get 300GB for 2100/- on PeeTCL (4 Mbps). I’d say give the telcos a year or a year-and-a-half to recover some of their investment. Then when they start offering great data buckets it will surely be bye-bye PeeTCL. If PeeTCL doesn’t keep up, that is.

      • Shoaib

        Mobilink has already offered unlimited 3G at Just Rs 600/ and Telenor has also offered unlimited 3G for fixed time limit at just Rs 300/.So data caps of these two cellular companies are almost unlimited.Other cellular companies will also reduce their rates drastically in coming months.So competition is on between PTCL and 3G/4G Operators.PTCL should reduce its Rs1250/ at data rate of 1 Mbps to at least Rs 600/ for staying competitive in market.Those who will maintain quality and reduce rates will succeed in the long run.See who wins the game.

        • Muhammad

          Brother, kindly inform mehow to activate mobilink and telenor unlimited 3g bundles?
          What data speed they offer???

          • Guest

            Mobilink’s bundles are for limited time only … any ways the maximum bundle you’ll get will be of 30GB in 600 rs here is the detail

          • Mirza Moazzam Baig

            here is the detail of mobilink’s 3g package.. but it for limited time only …. wheres as on telenor your 3g will become free/unlimited for the rest of the day(of course up-till 12:00 midnight of that day) if you will use rs50 of 3g without being on any package.

        • HassaanM

          The Mobilink bundle isn’t unlimited. It switches to 2G speeds after 30GB. And I can’t find any information on the Telenor’s unlimited bundle. But I guess, reputable unlimited bundles (>150-200GB) will come in time.

          • Shoaib

            Telenor package is if you use Rs 50/ 3G daily rest of day is free.So unlimited 3G package is Rs 1500/ per month.

          • Shoaib

            And if for Mobilink, 30GB 3G costs Rs 600/ and rest data is on 2G, it means it is unlimited.What else a common consumer demands/wants.It is more than enough

            • HassaanM

              Speed is no factor, right? Downloading at 2 Mbps and then suddenly downgrading to 50 kbps is no change at all?? A close to 3900% decrease?
