    • BADAR

      OH thats good.

  • Sadiq Qureshi

    Warid+Jazz (Quality+Quantity) Simply The Best.

    • Mohammadee

      Closed many franchises and closed live chat with a customer care representative. They are compromising on quality. The signals of my warid sim already are poor now since the merger is in progress so i closed my Warid SIM.

      • Muhammad Faheem

        It will take some time to get things settled… There is a lot of chaos at present…. Its too early to start bashing jazz for this…. Warid customers were less no doubt, but i think they were obssessed with it… I myself never felt easy using any other operator anywhere in country… At present jazz quality is low but i hope they will manage it in coming days

      • Samee

        That’s why I am porting out from Warid.

        • Muhammad Faheem

          i ported from warid to jazz a month ago… though the same now but jazz pe to ana he tha so khushi khushi join kr lia

    • Waqas

      These type of mergers only good for companies. Nothing good for customers. Lesser competition, higher the prices for customers.

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        It depends on nature of the competition. Lets suppose today Zong and Telenor merge into one company. Than both companies became very large and equal in size. And competition became neck to neck. In china there are only 3 companies.

        • Adnan

          Zafar bhai kia telenor zong merge ho rahe hain?

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            I said just suppose.

          • Nemesis

            Telenor is a good company unlike Dhong or TuPhone.

            • umer

              Good company with pathetic internet speed

      • Adnan

        21Mbps on 3G or 4G??

  • Umar Awan
