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.

  • 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)
