Ufone Upgrades its 3G Network in Karachi

Ufone has invested millions of dollars to upgrade its 3G network and services in Karachi mainly for providing high-quality experience to its valued customers in the financial hub.

This was stated by CEO Ufone Rainer Rathgeber while speaking exclusively with a select group of telecom journalists in Karachi.

The company’s new investment will offer an enhanced user experience to the people of Karachi.

“Undoubtedly, Karachi being the largest and financial hub of Pakistan is a key market for Ufone and our recent expansion here is a testament to our commitment for the city. In order to ensure flawless and uninterrupted service to this important city, we tested our new service in other cities first and after successful trials we decided to launch them in Karachi,” CEO Ufone told the media while briefing the importance of Karachi in terms of cellular business.

Ufone introduced a new technology in Karachi which had doubled the speed of the broadband internet and enhanced the coverage area of service significantly, he said.

Karachi is the biggest market in Pakistan for every telecom operator including Ufone, hence it has a significant role in the business of telecom sector along with strategic importance, he added. Due to the increasing economic activities and literacy factor in Karachi, the number of mobile broadband users has been growing.

“We are aware of the fact that customers demand internet with reliable connection and reasonable speed which is why we have reformed our existing network to reflect clear voice and fast internet speed with wider network coverage,” he added.

“I am sure that customers can make video calls through Ufone connection from anywhere in the city of Karachi while they can also stream videos without facing any difficulties.”

“Ufone has already enhanced its network in Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Abbottabad and Sialkot where our subscribers are already enjoying clear voice and fastest 3G internet experience.”

“The aim to improve the user experience of our customers by consistently innovating our services and pursuing technological advancements,” said Ufone CEO.​

      Ufone has Bad 3g Packages. Start using Zong for Better Experience.
      Zong is expanding its 3g/4g coverage rapidly.

  • ahmed

    Wasted money only on ads not it no use cry over spilled milk, mocking ads resulting now decline company I can see any future if they do not have any plan for 4G they should upgrade to quality

  • Arslan

    MOORAN WALI TOAR HAI UFONE DI.HOLI HOLI 3G UPGRADE HOGA JAB DUNIYA 6G PAR CHALI JAYEGI YEH METROPOLITIAN CITIES MN 3G COMPLITION KA JASHAN MANAYE GA.

  • BHatti

    • Ahsan

      Bhatti sahi kheel gya B*****

  • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

    The way they are upgrading 3G it seems that they are not interested in 4G right now. I will not be surprised if Ufone remain silent in upcoming auction as well.

    • ahmed

      Now your are agreeing that Jazz will be going for this auction and it was decided already :-)

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        Where I agree for jazz? I am talking about Ufone only here.
        Yahan 2 tarah ke bawaqoof hyn. Ek jo yeh samjhte hyn k upcoming auction sirf Ufone ko nawazne ke liye hai es liye base price low hai last year se. Ek aap ki tarah k hyn jin ko spectrum refarming ki alaf bay b nahin pata aur kehte hyn yeh jazz-warid merger ki deal ke tehat auction ho raha hai. Array bhai jazz itna spectrum kya karay ga? 15 MHz 4G kam hai kya? Jazz ne abhi coverage b expand karni hai us ke pese aap dyn gay? Jazz ne next year Warid ka license b renew karwana hai us ke pese b aap dyn gay? Last year auction k waqt Jazz CEO ne kaha tha after merger Jazz ko mazeed spectrum ki zarurat nahin, tab lagta hai aap soye huay thy.

        • YA Raza

          Warid ka license renew nhi krwain gy bhai jan
          Because jb network aik ho ga to warid users mobilink ka spectrum use krein gy 2G,3G,4G. aor ab auction mein din he to rehty hein ap apna waqt q zaia krty hein pata chal he jay ga

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            Sadqay jaon aap ki masoomiat ke Raza bhai. Matlab sach myn Jazz Warid ka license renew nahin karay ga? Spectrum renew karwane aur yeh spectrum lene ka difference toh dekh len zara. Warid ka spectrum 8.8 MHz of 1800 MHz and 4.8 MHz in 900 MHz ka hai. Aur shayed renew b new spectrum se sasta ho jaye jo just 10 MHz hoga.

        • Adnan

          hahaha bhai hath hola rakho yar

        • waqar hussain

          Bat aisi hai k Zong agr yeh auction jeet jata hai tu phir Jazz kiya kry ga? Kiya Woh zong k level ki services provide kr sky ga? Jazz tu already bht peechy hain. Zong ki 3g/4g Services bhi Jazz ki 3g/4g s bht behter hain. Jazz ka network already itna bz rehta hai. Kiya sach mein spectrum ki zrort nahin hai unko? How will they compete?

          hmmmm………..Chaloo choro aap ghusa kru gy.

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            Jazz ka network busy rehta hai kyun k jazz ne abhi apna spectrum refarm nahin kiya. Abhi uska 50% spectrum 2G services k liye use ho raha hai.
            Aur abhi jazz ko spectrum ki nahin coverage expansion ki zarurat hai. 15 MHz 4G is enough at the moment. What you say?

            • Umar Awan

              But jazz has 14.8 mhz in 1800. And u said 4g is only possible in 15 mhz otherwise they can use 10mhz only ?

              • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

                Yes. They will use 10 MHz of 1800 MHz for 4G and remaining 4.8 MHz for 2G. But they have 12 MHz of 900 MHz as well which is being used only for 2G. They can refarm 5 MHz out of this for 4G as well. So their 4G will become 15 MHz. And remaining 7 MHz for 2G.

            • waqar hussain

              Yar call tu 2g per hi hoti hai naan. abhi 2g ko zyada spectrum diya howa hai tb bhi yeh haal hai tu bd mein kiya hoga/

              • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

                Bhai jaan call 3G pe b hoti hai.

                • waqar hussain

                  Han Lakin mostly tu call k liye 2g Spectrum hi use hota hai naan.

              • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

                Aur 2G ka spectrim bhi ek saath nai alag alag hai. Jiska koi faida nai.

                • waqar hussain

                  Chalein dekhty hain k kiya improvement le kr aata hai jazz. By the way jazz is worst in quality so far. and Warid was best in qualtiy. Ab dekhty hain k kiya Khichari pkaty hain yeh mil kr. Your Comments are informative. Thanks

        • Kaleem

          Dear,
          I have no idea about spectrum reframing. Will u plz be kind enough to explain a little for me?

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            Spectrum refarming means change of technology on same spectrum. Just like Warid did. They were using 4.8 MHz of 900 MHz and 8.8 MHz of 1800 MHz for 2G. But they refarmed 5 MHz of 1800 MHz out of total 8.8 MHz for 4G because their spectrum was excess for actual requirement.

            • Kaleem

              Got it. Thanks a lot.

  • Hamid Raza

    Only that operator will survive who has 4G technology now

  • Ahsan

    Main Ufone se switch karnay lga hon zong par bekar 3G ki wja se… sirf new auction ka wait hai k shaid ufone b 4G khareed le

    • Shehzad Kisana

      i read all comments, given from my respected Pakistani. 3G network enhanced in different cities of Pakistan from Ufone side, so i ask the Only One Question from Ufone management why you FORGET Faisalabad city, The THIRD largest city of Pakistan. It’s all about END

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        Theu only refarmed in 5 cities. And trust me IT DOESN’T MATTER. Speed is same.

  • Ahsan

    Its age of technology, we need high speed internet and ufone is giving us 2G internet under the tag of 3G. Ufone 3G speed in Islamabad is very slow. Zong Speed in my area 19 MB aprox. and Ufone speed is 0.5-1.8mb aprox….

    • omer

      bhai saab do MNP now and enjoy zong better coverage and speed for now. if ufone wins this auction. then it will take ufone approx 1 year or so to expand 3g/4g coverage and network optimization and stability. if by 1 year ufone become anything like a real 3g/4g network you can switch back to ufone again via MNP. why you want to suffer till then. just go and use the best available service in your area. (zong or jazz which ever is doing good in your area)

      and i highly doubt ufone to win this auction. look at the way they are celebrating 3g upgrade in karachi like they hae done a miracle. had hai waisay …

      • Umar Awan

        Hahaha sahi bat ha ufone ase celebrate kar rha ha jese 5g k trails start kar dye hn . Ek punjabi ki mashoor kahawat ha khusryaan de ghar bacha jama te chum chum mar dita . For ufone . Lolz

  • Nafees
  • Jaun Raza

    well Ufone improved alot and also economical but they should introduced some cheap internet package like zong weekly package ..
