Zong, in a press statement, said that it has become the second largest 3G operator (in terms of customers) in the country.

Zong said that it is undergoing an extensive 3G rollout campaign, as a result of which the number of 3G cities covered by Zong has increased to 40.

Newly added 3G cities include

  • Wazirabad
  • Jhelum
  • Kamra
  • Nathia Gali
  • Mianwali
  • Sheikhupura
  • Jacobabad
  • Larkana
  • Pishin

All these 40 cities enjoy carpet coverage for 3G, the statement said.

Furthermore, Zong is the only operator to have a technology neutral portfolio, offering customers the same data bundles for 2G, 3G and 4G, which can be activated through a unified short code *6464#.

It is also the only operator to provide carpet coverage along the whole of Motorway (M1, M2 and M3), and has recently signed an agreement with Daewoo Express Pakistan Bus Service to provide free 3G on all Daewoo busses on the aforementioned motorway routes.

In this regard Zhang Peng, Director Marketing Zong noted that “This achievement is an indication of our strength as Pakistan’s only 3G & 4G operator, and affirms how Zong is successfully reaching out to more and more customers every day.”

He further noted that Zong plans on widespread extension of its 3G & 4G services in the current year, with expected service provision of 3G to reach a total of more than 100 cities as well as the whole of Motorway and GT Road.

  • The only thing holding me back from getting zong 4g / 3g is poor coverage and high prices for packages. Super 3g works… But not in a way you’d expect it … 300kbps at Max during the day and very very weak signals, not. Chance of good call quality and basically a very rough internet experience…

  • For those who are saying zong is dhong and complain about slow speed all are fake personally using zong 3g and speed is amazing connectivity is around 20 to 22 mbps and getting around 2mb downloading speed

  • No wonder the service has deteriorated in other cities. From getting 10 mbps now i get 512 kbps

  • you must be dhong’s company staff lol warid has the blanket coverage in the major areas of the khi now.

    • Bhai i am using Warid LTE also and i get similiar speeds on Warid LTE As of Zongs 3G

    • Bro I’ve also used LTE of both Zong and Warid . . .and I can vouch for Mr. Hashim’s Claim that Zong’s 3g gives speed equivalent to lte of Warid … . but Zong’s Packages are expensive that’s for sure . . . .Quality comes at a price.

  • Oh. I am using both Zong and Warid. Both LTE connections. I must say they are different but both are good. Warid for excellent coverage and really really smooth internet experience (Feels like a land line) I’ve been watching World Cup matches in my Car using PTCL Smart TV app while driving in every nuke and corner of Lahore. Excellent.
    Zong definitely has better speed but ride is bumpy. Although streaming doesn’t stop here too as speeds are excellent – never got less than 4-5 Mbps and max 27 Mbps – but it rises and falls. Spikes.
    But without any prejudice I must say that both are too good.
