Warid offers free 7 days LTE Trails upon SIM Upgrade

Warid today announced that all new prepaid and postpaid customers can enjoy a free 7 days LTE trail with a data allowance of 500MB, following a change or purchase of the new LTE SIM.

This can be done by either visiting the Warid Business Center or one of the franchises.

Warid’s free LTE trials are presently being offered by the company in six cities including:

  • Karachi,
  • Lahore,
  • Islamabad,
  • Rawalpindi,
  • Gujranwala
  • Faisalabad.

A unique feature has been introduced to help customers track their mobile data usage involving notifications as data is consumed. This is especially useful as the data usage reaches the set limit. Warid postpaid customers get notifications as they are approaching their data limit so as to not avail any extra charges.

Warid prepaid customers, however, receive notifications with every MB consumed and get bonuses as more data is consumed – for example after 10MB of data is consumed, an additional 10MB of data allowance is made free to the mobile user.

Moreover, Warid also offers its users credit protection whereby once a customer has consumed data worth PKR 200, internet data is made unlimited till midnight.

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

Warid has a reputation for using only the best of telecom technologies: it has partnered with Ericsson, the world leader in LTE/wireless broadband technology, as its sole technology partner for the launch of its LTE network.

With the launch of its LTE services, Warid becomes Pakistan’s first operator to transform from 2G to LTE technology. The company is persistently working to expand its LTE footprint in Pakistan further and aims to cover 10 more cities within the next 10 months and 20 cities in the next 20 months.


  • BadarUI

    6000 Rs per month with unlimited LTE whose speed is upto 150Mbps

    • mate7

      You have to charge approx rs.8000 to be able to spend rs.6000 on data.

    • Tnt4ever

      its official price ?

      can we really get 150Mbps or just like peeeTCL evo that say upto 9mbps & i can’t even get more than 512kbps

      • Mirza Moazzam Baig

        no that’s theoretical … whereas actually.. on average you’ll get 10-12Mbps… i tested these in lahore … and on zong you’ll get better speeds

      • BadarUI

        More than PTCL

    • Bilal Iqbal

      150 mbps…wake up my dear…they are on limited spectrum and speed is half as compared to zong…even i observed 0.7 mbps in the central area of faisalabad on Nexus 5…:(

      • Mohammad Ali

        Agreed with you

      • BadarUI

        What is spectrum? How it works?

        • Bilal Iqbal

          It reffers to a Range of continuous values in which any possible value can occure..like a spectrum of 10 MHz means there are 10×1,000,000 hz in which any value can occure. Specteum of light means a range of light with all possible colors. It can be spectrum of opinion in psychology..

          • BadarUI

            You mean to say the range of signals from one tower?

            • Bilal Iqbal

              No… it means range of frequency alloted to each operator.. it works in pair format. Like 2×5 MHz means 5 Mhz for downlink towards customer and 5Mhz uplink for data uploading towards centeral system.

              • BadarUI

                Mean zong has 10 mhz means it have 5 mbps uploading speed?

                • Bilal Iqbal

                  Bilkul nhi… 10 mhz mai 42 mbps max speed hoti hy agr HSPA+ TELechnology use ho. Agr HSPA use ho to 21 mbps max. Waisy actual speeds to 2-5 mbps tk arahi hy mostly…mbps and mhz ka aaps mai link zra technical sa hy..filhal ap ko smjh nhi aay ga

                  • BadarUI

                    means 5 Mhz fer 21 Mbps speed maximum hoti hai.
                    Mein 11.20 Mbps speed tak hasil krraha hun mobilink k 10 Mhz spectrum per. aur mere mobile ki maximum speed 21 Mbps hai.

                    • Bilal Iqbal

                      Nhi…technology difference hy. Telenor offering H+ upto 41 mbps with 5 Mhz…

                    • BadarUI

                      All are offering H+
                      Then how technology is different
                      Maximum speed that telenor gives is 7 Mbps.
                      But now ni more than 2 Mbps. Sometimes 0.30 Mbps

                    • Bilal Iqbal

                      Dear… max speed is theorotical limit…actual speed is 3-5 mbps all around the world. H+ is being offered because it is better than earlier H …

                    • BadarUI

                      But how I get 10 Mbps
                      And you mean to say Mbps or MBPS?

                    • Bilal Iqbal

                      People go over 10… but i m talking about regular conditions when there r multiple users over same tower

  • Ahsan Ali

    LG g pro 2 f350s support Lte?

    • mate7

      yes. Even L does. But take your sim with you, and test on the spot before paying.

      • Ahsan Ali

        but zong 4G not working phone support 1800mhz sim is 4G don’t know what to do

        • poora gidh

          Maybe its because Zong is FDD LTE and Warid is TDD LTE?

          • anas qamar

            both are fdd

        • Arsalan Shah

          Try converting your mobile on to International Firmware. That solved it for me.

      • Arsalan Shah

        L doesn’t.

    • MaaZ
      • Arsalan Shah

        GSMArena isn’t for LG Phones. It only has International Version’s written for All LG Phones. Korean versions come in 3 Variants – S/K/L. And GSMArena has no support for that.

    • MaaZ

      You can check on below address and selecting Handset Make LG from drop down list (LG F350 of any version is not mentioned):

      https://www.zong.com.pk/4g/handset-compatibility

      P.S:
      and to my understaning, LTE not working on some 4G enabled devices (1800 MHz) has to do with PTA…

      • Arsalan Shah

        Many sets aren’t mentioned, and I’ve used them over Zong 4G Band 3 1800MHz.

    • Arsalan Shah

      Yes, all LG Models, LG F160/F180/F240/F350, only S & K Does.

      S – 850MHz & 1800MHz
      K – 1800Mhz & 2100MHz
      L- 850Mhz, 1800MHz & 2100MHz

      Source: Owned all three sets, and checked Bands via Service Menu.

      • Nausher Tahir

        @disqus_IQLlVzJDtW:disqus i own f180L ulte carrier n it posseses 1800Mhz band 3. i converted it to internation version e975. now can i use warid 4g lte ? and if any smartphone has band 3+1800mhz facility will it accomodate warid 4g lte ?

        • Nausher Tahir

          because recently i tried to activate lte it only worked on 2g, despite give it lte settings.

    • Mohammad Ali

      Yes

  • Add This Point too

    after upgrading to LTE Sim card – user cannot MNP to any other network before 60 days

    • Adeel

      This is common
      Every network follow this policy

  • Tnt4ever

    what is the maximum consistent speed anyone has received on Warid LTE please share screen shots.

    thankx

    • Hikmat Baber

      check earlier blogs on ProPakitani. There are alot of screentests.

    • Ammar

      20-25mbps in Rawalpindi/Islamabad. As long as you get LTE coverage, that is what the speed is over here.

  • Better than Zong who didn’t even give a single MB for a trail!

    • Bilal Iqbal

      They spent more…for 3G and 4G both… :p

  • there is no tax on GPRS and internet usage but we are still paying tax
    if we just want to use internet, that’s why I think the concept of
    Separate Balance for Data usage (on which No Tax is imposed) should be
    adopted

  • Saqib

    Trail or Trial?

  • Riz

    Are Warid going to deploy seamless LTE coverage in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad??????What will happened once Warid customers will drop from LTE to 2 G (EDGE), because they do not have 3G buffer as ZONG have.

  • Baloch

    Warid ka AGR koi LTE pkg lega to 2g ka b pkg le kyun AGR LTE covrege area me na ho to 2g k paisy katengay acha tareka by kamane warid

    • Ahmed

      no. 2g coverage mein separate bucket is not required, for reliable and seamless connectivity i prefer Warid over Zong. atleast i dont have to make sure that my data connection is connected and is working when i move out of a wifi location. baqi sab ki apni apni choice hy i prefer reliability over speed (even if zong gives better speed in my area)
