      Zong Is In Last Because Of Its Expensive Packages ^

    • M. Mashhood Iqbal

      Zong is very very expensive. no day time packages like 2 GB in only 8 Rs. Zong must offer these kind of packages

    • Mirza Moazzam Baig

      Although zong offers the best speed in comparison all other operators but they are beaten by cheap packages of other operators

  • Zaki Uddin

    Doesn’t look right, zong has the best quality services >.>

    • Fakhre Alam

      best quality because its very expensive. NO heavy downloading/uploading. ONLY browsing

  • Huntesh Kumar

    Google Play Store and other Google services are NOT working? any idea why?

    • Shahid Saleem

      it’s the youtube block, sometimes the google play (or android sync) ip addresses are same range as youtube’s and the isps have blocked them.
