  • And I received a message from Zong stating a possible network outage due to technical issues. LOL :-P

  • After suffering frequent call drops, signal loss, poor 2G & 3G coverage in my area in Islamabad i’ve got rid of my Telenor connections for good. I’m extremely happy as a result! For me it was a daily outage & headache so i’m not surprised!

  • Yesterday at one time. today was worse here in Islamabad… no signal no calls absolutely dead :(

  • Drop me a message I will call you on whatsapp +923428775703, to active your WhatsApp calling option.

    • Yes only Warid and Mobilnk is best whose using Ericsson
      Zong and Ufone is better whose using Huawei
      Zong is just Good whose using ZTE

  • This has been going on for the past few days, no outages, but lower signals and dead 3g in 3g coverage areas..

  • There was severe outage of Ufone + PTCL yesterday of more than 8 hours….no calls no sms no internet

      • I hvn’t seen any such severe outage before…made me to think abt changing the network or atleast keeping a backup network.

            • if you have not use Warid in Pakistan than you do not know about the QoS, just try once you will never leave Warid on Network related issue.

              • Oh yes. I agree. No network comes even close to Warid when it comes to smooth connectivity, crystal clear voice. And literally no issues. One of the best networks I have seen in the world. Tried all networks an apart from Ufone (that was slightly better apart from their 3G strategy) none impressed and I’m back to it.
                And honestly if you haven’t used Warid you really dont know what an excellent voice and data quality is. Impressive really.

  • We have been facing this issue in I9-I10 sector for last 6 days,Telenor/ Zong signals GONE!!
    In contact to Operator, PTA is practicing some Mobile Jammer in ahead of Metro Inauguration/ 23 March Parade.
