Zong Revises its Monthly 3G/4G Packages

It’s a mixed news for Zong 4G customers as the Chinese cellular operator has revised upward charges of its monthly 4GB package from Rs 500 to 600 with additional 2GB data provision and free Good Night Offer (GNO) with which customers will be able to consume 1GB of internet from 1AM to 9AM every night.

New charges will be applicable from August 2nd, 2016.

The charges are exclusive of 19.5 percent GST.


Clearly, with Rs. 100 increase in monthly fee, Zong has offered 2GB of additional GBs per month and 1GB of free data each night. This could be a better deal for many while others may not like the price increase due to their limited data usage.

Operators usually hike prices of packages with better user response in terms of subscription and utility, hence they try to make such plans more lucrative and pricey for better revenues, which is allowed in the competitive regime under the rules of the regulator.

Operators, at times, take advantage of their quality and availability of the service or packages which are unique and not offered by other operators, making it their unique selling point.

    This is outrageous, it would have been better if they had provided 6 GB at same price. I am disappointed that instead of reducing the charges, operators are making internet costly.

    • Aamir

      100 Rupee Main Aapko Dy Donga :P

      • SSyar

        Its 119.5 incl. tax :D

        • Fahad J

          its not tax , its actually Noon Welfare Fund for the poor and the miserable

      • Herculies

        not actually, Its 600 + tax. Also Rs 24.23 are deducted for 100. Now paying tax twice made it very expensive. If I’m not wrong you would have to load around 1000 rupees before subscribing this package.

      If you play your cards right, you can avail up to 36 GB every month instead of 4GB with a minor increase in price.

      • Xain

        How ?

      • Fayez Najeeb

        What’s so complicated to understand that you need to be emailed? 1GB every night for 30 days and 6gb package.

        • Naveed Ahmd

          Hahaha…brother who uses internet at the time between 1am to 9am..??

          No one…as its rest time to school/job time

          • Taha Najam

            What are you, a 4 year old? Heck even school kids don’t go to sleep before midnight nowadays. The real shugl time starts after 1am. And yes, I have to go to work in the morning too, but the thought of going to bed before 2am sounds unfathomable to me. Our bodies have been tuned for 6 hours of sleep. Anymore, and you’ll be feeling like a zombie the entire next day.

          • Zarak Khan

            guys like me who need to download big files

  • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

    I think the price hike of 100 is justifiable as it includes 2GB data with free GDO for whole month which costs 180 Rs without tax

    • Naveed Ahmd

      Fuck all operators….aall r increasing rates.ignoring poor public pockets

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        When it comes free of cost

    • Taha Najam

      On another note, with ZONG Super Weekly offer, you can get 8BG/month for Rs400 + Rs180 for GNO every day. Still cheaper.

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        Also mention it is only for data sim.

        • Taha Najam

          No it’s not. I use it regularly on my phone sim.

          • shahid

            Kesey bata saktey hen

            • Taha Najam

              Dial *2*1# to get 2gb for Rs.100 every week. So a total of 8gb for just Rs.400 per month.

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            How to subscribe it on regular sim. Please tell

            • Taha Najam

              Just dial *2*1# and get 2GB for Rs.100. Subscribe it every week to get 8GB a month for only Rs.400. Plus you can subscribe gno offer every night for an additional 30GB only for Rs. 160. So that’s 38GB for Rs. 560. Around Rs750 with tax.

              • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

                If Samsung is so powerful as you said why theyare afraid to launch their flagship phones with Tizen OS, their inhouse software build to compete android? Even after successfully testing so many times. Because they know that once they left android, they will follow Nokia to the graveyard.

                • Taha Najam

                  Uh, you replied to me under a completely irrelevant discussion, but anyway, why would they do something so stupid when android works perfectly fine for them? People mistakenly think android is Google’s property, when in fact, Samsung have got quite a big stake in getting android where it is today. Secondly, they didn’t develop Tizen to replace Android in their flagships, but to power their next set of smart devices, such as their smartwatch, TV and soon, their standalone VR.

  • KWM

    So cheap compared to these rates. Now these are really outrageous.

    • Herculies

      Well what’s so outrageous when you are being paid your salary in SAR as well :p

      • omer

        And there is no tax in saudi arab . You load 10 riyal you get 10. So i will happily pay 350 riyal for a unlimited package.

      • KWM

        lo kar lo gal … It is just to give an idea that internet packages are very cheap in Pakistan.

          کویت میں پاکستانی 1400 روپے میں 300 جی مہینے کے لئے ہے اور سپیڈ ایل ٹی ایی پلس ہے سپیڈ ٹیسٹ میں 175 ایم بی پر سیکنڈ ہے

        • Herculies

          Still your comparison doesn’t make sense. It is costly but only for you if you are Pakistani, because you would always convert currency before buying anything but not the local person. If your country’s currency is powerful, you will have more purchasing power compared to those with lower currency.

          • Herculies

            *with lower currency value.

          a mazdoor in saudia earn minimum 55k pkr and a mazdoor in pakistan earn only 14k. See the difference in salaries :) Operators over there are paying more to their workers :) My mamu works in a call center of a telecom company in Saudia and get 5k and here the call center guys earn only 20-25k

          • KWM

            What I have observed so far is that the salaries in Saudia are dependent on your passport. So If you are coming from Pakistan they’ll give you better salary than what you are earning in pakistan but it may be 10 times less than the salary of an Arab nationality or western national doing the same work. So our salaries are still dependent on what we earn in Pakistan. So it may be nothing for an Arab or western but is something for others.

    • Fakhar Mahboob

      You didn’t compare the Pakistani and Saudi normal guy Salary ?

      • KWM

        What I have observed so far is that the salaries in Saudia are dependent on your passport.

    Punjab has no tax on data(internet). Other provinces have it. So, Rs.600+tax means only Rs.600 for Punjab And Rs.600+ 18% or 19.5% tax for other provinces. Right?

    • Muhammad Faheem

      no it isn’t like that. its for all

    • Abid Raza

      No tax on data sim all over Pakistan
