      Ok sir

  • Rizwan Yaqoob

    I wonder how Mobilink and specially Ufone managed to grab so many 3G customers despite the fact that they have limited 3G coverage and poor speed. Zong has much better coverage and in terms of speed Zong is second to none.

        Cheap? Right now they have most expensive internet packages than others.

      I’ve been observing the same since the day when Ufone started 3G. It’s providing expensive packages as compared to the other networks, but I’m amazed how its number of users are increasing despite the reason. Sometimes it does seem to me a fake info-graphics.

    • Rizwan Yaqoob

      This is the first time I saw such speed at Ufone. Impressive though!
