Zong Starts Offering Same Packages for 2G, 3G and 4G

In a move that is going to simplify the data usage for Zong’s customers, company has combined its 3G and 4G packages to offer technology neutral data tariffs for its prepaid customers.

This consolidation of 3G and 4G packages is valid for all plans having a monthly data limit of 2GB or more. Meaning that any plan that comes below 2GB monthly data limit will be valid for 2G and 3G, while anything above 2GB monthly limit can be consumed for 2G, 3G or even 4G.

With this move, 3G users can now avail data package that was previously offered to 4G customers only and vice versa.

Customers will get 4G network where available. In case 4G network isn’t available then customers will be offered 3G network or 2G network if 3G and 4G both are un-available.

Not to mention, customers do need to have a 4G SIM and a compatible handset to use 4G network.

Check below table to have a look at all the packages that you can avail for either 3G or 4G network:

Zong Daily 3G Package:

internet-tariffs-daily-packages

Zong Weekly 3G Package:

internet-tariffs-weekly-packages

Zong Monthly 3G / 4G Package:

internet-tariffs-monthly-packages

Default 3G / 4G Rate:

  • When not subscribed to any bundle, default internet rate would be: Rs.10/MB
  • After 1 MB of consumption (for every data session), subscribers would be down-throttled to 256 kbps to protect him/her from consuming too much data at 3G speeds and receiving a bill shock.
  • 3G speeds will be resumed once he/she subscribes to a bundle
  • Default rate will be charged again after the expiry of data bundle, Add On and OOB rate validity.

Activation:

  • Dial *6464# for tariff activation menu

Data Usage Check:

  • Dial *102# to know remaining resources for your data bundle

Note

  • Out-of-Bundle Rate: Rs.1/MB – As per the expiry of base package.
  • Zong doesn’t impose any speed limit, except for default time package.
  • After reaching volume cap of a bundle, the user’s mobile internet speed will be decreased to 2G speeds (256 kbps) to protect him/her from consuming too much data at 3G speeds and receiving a bill shock.
  • The normal 3G speeds will be resumed once the user buys an Add On or upgrades to a higher bundle.
  • For Daily & Hourly bundles, usage notification messages would be sent at: 80% utilization only.
  • All packages can be re-subscribed as many times a customer desires within the validity period, after reaching volume cap (except Daily Packages)
  • All packages are on auto-renewal meaning that auto-renewal will keep on happening until the customer does not have sufficient balance for 3 consecutive days. After 4 days of no balance, he will be un-subscribed.

  • fahad

    means zong announced 3g/4g in all cities

    • aamir7

      no, 4G can be used only where coverage is available, on a compatible handset and with 4G sim

      • Saif Ali Khan

        And 4G sets cost way more. There was rumour that only PTA approved 4G handsets will work on 4G, is that true?

        • MaaZ

          I read it too and then there are users who are complaining of 4G not working despite having a 4G handset and 4G sim

        • Ææmįr Mōhâmmåd

          NOPE , i am using Zong 4G on a USA iPhone 5S

          • MaaZ

            iPhones are not built region specified.

            • Your daddy

              Nope you’re wrong, region is been coded into Model number of any iPhone, for you is just numbers but ony Apple can know it’s origin of purchase via model number, secondly is Doesn’t matter at all because iPhone have pretty much all 2G 3G and 4G bands!!

              • MaaZ

                main bhi yehi kehna chah raha tha bhai k iPhone kaheen say bhi khareedo, duniya k her konay may chalega… baqi companies ki tarah nahi k china k 4G k leye alag model or baqi regions k 4G leye alag alag models…

  • Uzair Farooqi

    Their packages sucks…

    • Vinod Kumar

      Mobilink’s Package’s Are Cheap :)
      I’m Currently Using Weekly ;)

      • Uzair Farooqi

        Me too. But i liked the Daily package with 1000 MB but now they downgraded it to 100 MB only

      • Mirza Moazzam Baig

        Mobilink’s all shiny cheap packages are time barred now. mean they were only for limited time and that limited time is over now .. so now i think telenor and zong’s packages are good

        • Taha Najam

          No they arent. Only the daily package has been reduced to 100MB from 1000MB previously but the rest are the same. Two new packages have been introduced: Daily light for Rs. 8, which is time barred, and 3g Daily super for Rs. 25, which is not.

          • Mirza Moazzam Baig

            thanks for correcting me

    • Global links

      NEW packages are GREAT!!!

      3 month zong bundle in 3999 Rs.
      144GB Data (48GB each month )
      much cheaper then evo wingle warid and mobilink
      i am saying cheaper because of this kind of speed .

      anyone want to get zong DATA sim to avail this package or want to buy device

  • Tausif | توصیف

    Good move. By this way Consumer will not be confused for technology orriented tarrif.

  • Usman

    Mobilink has the best packages so far. It would be nice if you could write an article comparing the packages of different providers.

    • I have written an article on that comparison of best packages on my website and have also given award to mobilink for best packages but when i used mobilink 3G myself then i came to decision that its really slow network.

      • Uzair Farooqi

        Well that is because i think Mobilink is going on Top in comparison to its 3G users. That is why the speed gets distributed

      • They have highest number of users so yeah speed will be affected..

  • Saad R.

    If you need a different frequency SIM for 4G, how will you get 3G on 4G sim when not in 4G coverage area?

    • eyescreaman

      SIM doesn’t dictate frequency, your phone needs to be 4G compatible and it will fall back to 3G when not in 4G coverage. I have used 3G on the Zong 4g SIM.

  • Fakhre Alam

    Zong=Fail

    Mobilink=Rock

    • Both Fail. None network is either good for 3G service. used both

      • Fakhre Alam

        am using it for skype audio calls . voice is clear and uninterrupted

  • Naveed

    They were already giving these packages … whats new in it ? :)

  • Hayat

    Above all, is the 4G which no other operator is offering i believe. and as i have experienced, the speed is also on top of all

    • Ahmed

      share speed screen shot of Zong 4G

  • Ali

    Expensive packages see mobilink,telenor offers and see your offers.

  • adnan

    Expensive, mobilink and telenor are best

    • Mirza Moazzam Baig

      mobilink’s packages ‘WERE’ best they are no more .. cuz that limited time lucrative packages are all gone now.

      • dude they are still there.. check again…

        • Mirza Moazzam Baig

          (consider my above comment null)
          yeah sorry .. i cheked and found that only Rs.15 package was downgraded from 1000Mbs to100Mbs, rest of them are still on…. mY bad .. thanks for pointing out

  • Khan

    The download speeds sucks big time.

    Are we living in 19 century 1815, the packages zong* are offering for 3G/4G is what makes me feel this and also the speed Zong provide vs the speed Zong advertised, I am sick of all of this. And not just me thousands of other people, who believed that these technological advancement will open up many of our gridlocks but it just worsens it.

    *(Offer packages with data plans in Mbs)

    • Guest

      What do you actually want to say? ;)

    • fahd

      Dear kindly chek this zong speed.

    • guest

      bhai urdu main btao kya kehna chahtay ho

      • Taha Najam

        Janab farme rahe hain k zong ka 3g istamal kar k unko aisa mehsoos hota he k wo 19 (uneesvi) sadi, san 1815 me reh rahay hain. Kehte hain k wo ab tang aa gye hain aur sirf un ka hi nahi balke hazaron logon ka khayal tha k ye tecnology anay se mulk rar o rat taraqi karne lagay ga magar sorat e haal aur badtareen ho gai he.

    • Fake Persona

      Log itna rotay q hain? LTE means long-term-evolution, so let it evolve…

      Jumma jumma 8 din hoay nahi technology ko aey hoay (Pak may) or rona shuru kardia k speed nahi hay, speed nahi hay. o bhai, speed say ziyada PING matter karti hay. kabhi Latency<5ms ka net use karliya na to wohi haal hoga jesa broadband user ka 56kbps dial-up use karnay per hota hay…

      or baqi duniya may konsa full theoretical speed milti hay? check US speeds:

  • Najaf

    lolzz at these so called packages. providing 3g speed and only 4mb data? who in the hell approved that? anyone with a small amont of knowledge about MB knows that 4MB can be gone within a second and zong is giving us 24hrs to consume 4mb..what a joke.
    its like giving someone F1 formula car and he is just alow to drive it in his house..whats the use of this fast internet speed when the limits are so tight.

  • fahd

    4G speed on zonG

  • fahd

    ZonG best for All Networks

    • Ahmed

      :)

  • Afraz

    Aamir
    these packages were introduced since the launch of 4G. Can I use a daily bundle with 4G? No…

  • adil

    itna sirf browsing hi kar sakta hai images k begair aur itne main sirf messengers chal sakte hain i can confidently say that

    • MaaZ

      agar whatsapp, facebook etc or browsing na bhi karay user tub bhi sirf email sync honay per he 4MB consume hojaega.

  • Jameel

    if all telcos followed mobilnk pricing strategy, then very soon we can all get rid of the shitty PeeTCL monopoly….!!! If my area had coverage of 3g with mobilink I would turn off my evo in an instant..

  • M3RCY

    nice move but mobilink is way cheaper then any other operator .. i m a mobilink postpaid costumer i download 100s of gb in 2000 max monthly bill ..
    i got 8 to 12mbps on average only on 2 signal bars :) in my area

  • munnu1983

    Costly

  • salman

    expensive

  • Khanzada

    No network can beat mobilink..
    Mobilink is best ***** 5 star out of 5.

  • Taha Najam

    I ditched my Qubee connection and just use Mobilink’s weekly 3g bundle for all my internet needs. I used to pay Rs. 1500 for a 1.5Mbps connection, and although they advertised it as unlimited, it was capped at 40GB under fair usage policy. Now it costs me be about Rs. 240 for 28GB of volume and I get speeds of arounds 8Mbps.

  • jamil

    I think telenor is good….zong packages too much costly…….

  • Fakhre Alam

    lol juma juma aat din sirf pakistan mein huay hain. long term evolution ka matlab ye nahi ky ye evolve hoga. hahaha MR CHARLES DARWIN :-D

  • Zafar

    Zong 4G Speed Test in Faisalabad. Getting 25-30 Mbps Speed. Warid and other network suxxxxx

  • Rehan F

    I hope this will start other competitors to think about their strategy too.

  • Shoaib

    3G/4G operators have got penetration in market.They have earned 47 billion in FY 2014 from data/internet as compared to 43 billion from landline and other operators.Means their revenue from data is 25% more as compared to previous year.Competition is on.

  • Taha Najam

    Yeah that’s what I meant. So for about four weeks a month, Rs.60 x 4= Rs. 240 for 7,000 MB x 4 = 28,000 MB data.

  • USB dongles bhi to launch karne chahiye telecom companies ko, takay PC pe bhi to use kar sakain 3G.

    • Mirza Moazzam Baig

      if u have an android or iPhone, then you can use it on PC via portable wifi hotspot.

  • Zong 2G, 3G and 4G all hell

  • saad jan

    mobilink best.

  • Saad Jan
