Jazz Officially Awarded 4G Spectrum After it Paid 100% License Fee

Jazz has been awarded the 4G spectrum by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) after it paid the license fee, we have checked officially.

According to information shared with ProPakistani, Jazz paid 100% of license fee that amounts to USD 295 million as a base price and an additional 10% in taxes to start its work on expanding the existing 4G coverage in Pakistan.

“This development is truly very exciting for us at Jazz because it allows us to provide Pakistan with a far reaching and enhanced mobile broadband experience,” Aamir Ibrahim, CEO – Jazz said. “Acquisition of the additional spectrum demonstrates Jazz’s investment in the country’s digital future – in line with our vision of becoming a true digital entity.”

This reflects Jazz’s commitment and support for the Government and its digital Pakistan’s agenda. Jazz was the only operator to have participated in the 4G spectrum auction and hence qualified as the winner without any bidding.

By expanding its 4G network, Jazz looks to bring in new digital experiences designed to not only provide exceptional communications services, but also convenient financial, business and entertainment solutions.


  • Umar Awan

    Welldone jazz. The real competition started now . Jazz vs zong

    • Farrukh Sohail

      Zong is much better so far let’s see jazz how jazz will place the market

    • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

      End user should be the real beneficiary.

    • Waqar Azeem

      my foot
      jazz can never compete zong in way of 3G 4G coverage
      jazz ka 3G sirf 300 cities mein hy aor aor zong ka 3G 680 cities mein hy aor jazz ka 4G 80 cities mein hy aor zong ka 4G 410 cities mein hy
      zong day by day apni coverage extend kar raha hy aor jazz is doing nothing for 3G 4G coverage expansion
      zara Multan sy bahir nekal kar dekho phir pta chalay ga k jazz kia kar raha hy aor zong kia kar raha hy
      don’t appreciate rubbish jazz for nothing

      • Xahid

        You forgot, Jazz own Warid too.

        • Leo

          Trust me, the warid customers of jazz are not so happy. Previously there was 4G service on warid network and currently with jazz we dont even get a stable 3G service. Time to port out I guess.

        • Asif Ali

          I’m a warid postpaid user but after merger 4g speed is equal to 2g and always a problem while connecting call.

      • Ayaz Malik

        Dear, I am not favour any company but here is many locations I have visited still no ZONG 3G but Telenor 3G covered since last 1 year & JAZZ 3G covered last 8 months. I know ZONG is best in quality but where is 680 cities they are covered???????? Just marketing. I am not agree with you.

        • Shehzad Ahmed

          Bro Jazz is 100% better than Zong in all terms except costly packages…Zong 3G speed in my city doesn’t touches even 100kb after last month and the signals MashaAllah hardly i can get 2 to 3 signal of Zong 3G..on the other hand i get full Jazz 3G signals and the speed remains at 800kb to 1mbps and the signals remains stable also..i hope Jazz should start its 4G in my city as soon as possible..Zong is rubbish network

        • Waqar Azeem

          i am also not in favour of Zong quality i am only in favour of 3G 4G coverage of zong
          which is far better than jazz
          u must travel to Taunsa shareef city and whole tehseel which is largest tehseel of Pakistan
          there is absence of jazz 3G
          all other operator are offering 3G 4G including zong and Telenor ufone
          but jazz is still on 2G even in vast and huge area
          moreover it is fact that zong has covered more than 600,cities for 3G

      • Umar Awan

        Hahaha bhai cool down . I m not jazz employee. But I m jazz user infact all operators users .I own all networks sims and compare them frequently.agreed with u zong has more 4g coverage and speed till date as compared to jazz. But on 3g jazz and zong are neck to neck . I have seen many places where zong dont have 3g and jazz have , or jazz speed much better than zong on many places . Go get comapre than debate .I m frequent traveller . Not talking about multan

        • Waqar Azeem

          Respected sir kabhi Taunsa shareef city aayen ap yahan abhi tak jazz 3G nahi aya aor pori tehseel Taunsa shareef mein jazz ka 3G nahi hy hum pori family jazz users thy 10 saal sy we have requested for 3G many times at help line and their official email address but they did not give any attention
          so we all family members have changed our network
          ap kabhi Dera Ghazi khan sy Dera Ismail khan tak indus high way py travel karen then u will come to know that poray 300 km long distance tak kisi bhe city mein jazz 3G ni hy but zong 4G available hy

          • Umar Awan

            Respected sir yehi bat mn bhi keh rha hn . Ye patches hote hn kahin ek company strong kahin doosri . Taunsa aur dg khan to di khan ka mjhe pata ha yahan jazz 3g nhn ha agreed. Ap kabhi mm road dekhen usk ilawa multan to khushab road road pe jazz ki 3g coverage dekhen. Sabse zada ha . Dist mianwali dist khushab dekhen .in roads areas pe sabse zada jazz 3g ki coverage ha . Telenor jazz zong coverage mn tough compettion ha . Kahin ek ha kahin doosra

            • Waqar Azeem

              u r absolutely right D G khan sy D I khan indus high way py sirf zong aor Telenor ke 3G coverage hy jazz ka 3G es poray 300 KM long road py nahi hy
              jazz ki uper punjab aor south east Punjab mein 3G coverage bahot hy
              koi network kaheen strong hy tu koi kisi aor area mein

      • Shehzad Ahmed

        I called Zong customer care center to complain for low speed and low signal problem..the customer representative said that they do not have any commitment for providing Zong network in your city and said if its working you can use it on your own otherwise they are not responsible for anything…i mean wtf if they do not have any commitment then why the hell they installed Zong 2G and 3G tower in my city..m

        • Waqar Azeem

          yes hamaray city mein zong ka 4G 6 months sy chal raha hy but help line py call kro tu woh kehtay hain we are not offering 4G in ur city
          a big disaster with their customer care

          • Shehzad Ahmed

            I cant understand their strategy…i mean what do they wanna show with their these kind of actions…simply we can say that their helpline persons are uneducated or they do not care about their customers and service quality..because money is everything in Pakistan no matter what the others are suffering from all do they care about is money

    • Yasir Mahmood

      Jazz can never be compared to Zong at all.
      Zongs speed and packages are way better than any other telco

    • Hassam Tahir

      Telenor ftw

    • Haxxan Raja

      Zong ab ni ponch skta jazz ko speed ma. Ku k main chez speed ha,

  • Ahmad Khan Sabri

    Lets see. How jazz serve the country or we serve the jazz?

  • ahmed

    It seems Jazz is more aggressive strategy than Zong and feels like Jazz will lead the market in quality and quantity.

    • Furqan

      zong is an old player of 4g jazz cannot compete zong for at least next 3 years for sure!

  • Shaaf

    Good for zong users. Some burden will be offloaded to mobilink. Zong towers are getting crowded. Sector C of Bahria Town lahore is one example.

    • Umar Awan

      Good for zong users but not good for zong

      • Waqar Azeem

        oppppssss mister I think u r any jazz employee
        jahan jazz ka abhi tak 2G hy wahaan zong 4G dy raha hy aor people zong ki 4G devices ly chokay hain no one will buy jazz devices and no one will wait for jaZz 4G devices
        abhi tak tu jazz ki big cities mein 4G coverage nahi hy aor abhi tak jazz ki 4G devices nahi announce howi
        aor jazz ko 4G coverage extend karnay mein 2 saal tu lag he jayen gy jis slow speed sy jazz ki technical team kar rahi hy
        etnay mein zong market mein pori tarah jaga bna choka ho ga and now one would like to move to jazz sirf multani he jazz k gunnn gaatay rahen gy jaisay k abhi gaa rahay hain
        lolZzzz

        • Umar Awan

          Jnab pareshan na hon ye sab mazak ho rha ha . Kal wala lisence jazz ko nhn mila zong ko mila ha . Aur jazz ko to china wala nakli lisence dya ha asal to zong k pas hi ha . Lolz

          • Waqar Azeem

            sir je mujhy personally Jazz pasand hy but jazz ki rudeness pasand ni jazz walay customer ko zara value nahi detay that’s why they are loosing their customers

                ufone walay bahot dheet hain defeat nahi maantay un ko pta hy jab tak jahil Pakistani hain un ka network chalta rahay ga aor jahan ufone ka 3G chalta hy wahaan kon sa theek kaam karta hy 25kbps average speed hy aor 3G package sms package aor call package worst expensive hain sirf super card hy jo jahil awaam ko khush kiye howay hy
                aot 3G coverage bahot bahot kam hy

                • Umar Awan

                  Itne fakhar se kehte hn super card data hn poora mahina sukoon se guzrta ha call sms internet sab free . Aur hum log 1 gb data din mn use kar jata hn . Lolz

                  • Waqar Azeem

                    ufone ka 3G es qabil kahan k ap 1GB daily use kar saken
                    ufone ka 3G chalay ga tu use ho ga 30kbps sy opar speed jaati he nahi aor woh bhe kabhi 8kbps tu kabhi 11kbps aor kabhi 30kbps
                    I wish that Ufone Network he band ho jaye aor jahil log bhe koi achi cheez use kar saken else than Ufone

            • Shehzad Ahmed

      Agreed . I second u . Mera bhi yehi khayal ha

    • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

      Bhai nikal aao khwabon ki dunya se. See propakostani post kab Jazz ne new 4G spectrum win kiya tha. Wahan clearly likha tha jazz has decided to dispose off warid spectrum over the cost of new spectrum.

  • Salman Ahmed

    Jazz already has one spectrum of warid ?

    • Mohammad Mudassir

      Yes obviously but that warid spectrum is going to be expired in 2019 and PTA already told no more spectrum auction till 2021 or 2022 maybe.

  • Farzad Khan

    Not sure about other areas but along gt road and motorway between Lahore and islamabad and within islamabad where I work, along both rural and semi urban areas between gt road and motorway, my experience has been best with Jazz. I use two 4g sims of telenor and jazz each, and mobile WiFi device of zong.
