Wi-tribe Becomes Pakistan’s First Operator to Cross 200Mbps Internet Speeds

Wi-tribe breached the magical 200Mbps internet speed record following testing on its soon to be released LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) technology network, said a statement issued by the company.

Company claims to become the first service in Pakistan to deliver 4.5G speeds and quality.

Wi-tribe is currently undergoing a network upgradation through which it plans to offer LTE-Advanced to its subscribers in Lahore and Karachi initially.

This high-end broadband internet will further be stretched to other covered areas of the country as well.

Upgradation plan is part of wi-tribe’s $100 million investment programme that it wants to inject in a span of three years.

Company said that this investment will enable Wi-tribe to offer high-end broadband speeds in Pakistan followed by a number of value added services.

It will mean Pakistan becomes the first country in South Asia and the Middle East to deploy LTE-A technology delivering 4.5G speeds. End users will be able to watch ultra HD content without buffering and businesses won’t suffer due to poor speed related challenges.

It merits mentioning here that Huawei is deploying Wi-tribe’s network during first phase.

“We are truly thrilled at breaking the 200Mbps speed barrier and delivering Pakistan’s fastest ever Home Broadband Internet Service”, said Shahid Malik, the president and Chairman of Wi-tribe.

“While we don’t intend to offer 200Mbps speeds to our customers, we will nonetheless be offering some very high-speeds & high-volume packages, which cater for all customer needs”, he added.

Hinting about Witribe packages, Mr. Malik outlined that his company will be offering ample amount of data limits along with high-speeds to the customers.

    • Noo man! My khala is one of the Trial user for this new witribe technology..North Nazimabad me rehty hain..Signals achay hain and bohat taez performance hae …aislye me khud jaty hoon unke ghar for season and movie downloads…I think it’s better to discuss truth rather than faking negativity about someone..

        • I have been following technology news for a long time now…I don’t think any news agency or tech page esp like pro-Pakistani would publish such news without any authentication!! i think a lot has been invested in this technology.. You write it and it’s every where in google about the miilions dollar contract with huwawei ….

    • No, it’s not true..wi-tribe will stay here thats why they invested in this new technology. I have confirmed from my uncle..he’s is PTA.

      • you are a clown working for WiTribe. Your “Khala” has WiTribe Trial account which you use for downloading seasons and Tv Shows eh? and your Uncle is in PTA and confirmed witribe is here to stay eh? LOL

        • Brother! probably that’s the reason our country doesn’t prosper because it has discouraging and pessimist people like you! who just comment/post for hype and seek attention..
          Yes i did ask him about the service..whether it’s true or not.. since ima tech geek myself. i do my research.. :)

  • Pathetic service in Lahore, I used a year of its 3Mbps, the speed didn’t go to 200 KBps most of the time rather below 100 KBps. I don’t know how they will provide 200Mbps when a thousand of customers will be using the shared bandwidth!

  • as far as 4G usage goes , zong has no competetor , using in khi , it gives b/w 12-24 mbps .

  • ye speed sirf company k head office m hi ati h..end user will recieve the traditional speed

  • Aren’t they currently operating on 3.5 G network (known as WIMAX)? Last time I heard, they were supposed to launch LTE-A somewhere in August. So I guess they haven’t launched it yet.

    • Qubee used WIMAX which is a (loosely stated) 3.5G network. The problem is not their backend. It is the endpoint BTS which is running on weary hardware that should have been decommissioned long ago.

      Even with LTE backend, if there endpoint hardware is of low quality and cant handle throughput, and if they keep capping bandwidth during peak hours (yes they do cap bandwidth and dont believe their word when they say that they dont) then technical users (who are concerned for the available bandwidth, download speed, uplink, ping etc) will remain disappointed.

      • Actually, WIMAX is a shit technology which has failed world-wide. LTE-A, on the other hand, is a very good technology, and supports a higher number of users per tower. While I’m not sure of what Wi-Tribe will make of it, from a technological pov, it would be interesting to see how it turns out.

  • While we don’t intend to offer 200Mbps speeds to our customers, we will nonetheless be offering some very high-speeds & high-volume packages, which cater for all customer needs”, he added

    Also stop this slang’s.. no such thing as 4.5G.
    Its 4G / LTE A period!

    • Me as IT guy,it means they would be delivering 4,5G speeds.. this is greater than 4G..It’s a huge investment probably the reason every other digital news channel is posting about them.

    • 200 Mbps koi nahe deliver krega exact..Thats too much..Leken wi-tribe would be fastest of all that i knoww…4.5G is the latest generation of internet which they acquired.

    • Pakistan me apko itni speed deliver horehe hae…bohat bari baat hae yae bhai..aur kya mangtay ho

    • IF this is the best you got in a trial then imagine how much you’ll get when thousands will be using their services at once, around 10mb im guessing

  • Finally!! :D

    Some high quality fast internet in Pakistan.
    I’ve heard that the test response was great !!

    Best of luck wi-tribe or whoever owns it

  • No they will start this ,
    This was only test ,
    But who is ready to pay too much price for this

  • It’s a great news! for all the Pakistanis.. Wi-tribe is the first (Pakistani) company in South Asia and Middle East to deploy this technology!!

      • ISB F-10 & F-11, and most places in RWP including Saddar & Westridge. Called wi-tribe, they responded that this is a problem with entire ISB/RWP and engineers are looking into it and working.

        • Live in F-10, near to silver ox..working good here! i directly go to blue area care center when mine doesn’t work..

  • The internet is good! My khala is using witribe’s new technology in Karachi for trial..She is happy and i also go to her place for season downloads..it’s acha khasaa fastt.

  • Q) Does the 200 Mbps speed test indicate the throughputs end users will be receiving?
    A) No.

    Q) Did WiTribe just conduct a test on empty site upon doubling spectrum back in August, 2016?
    A) Yes

    Q) Does the speed test translate into better QoS for users?
    A) Yes

    Q) Will customers be getting 200 Mbps?
    A) No.

    Q) First time 3.5 Ghz deployed in the region a big thing?
    A) No.

    Q) what speeds will end users be getting?
    A) The speed tested 200 Mbps just now – advertised “Lighting speeds of 150 Mbps” on twitter, earlier – whilst Huawei claimed the upgrade would make around 100 Mbps possible. Zong advertised 150 Mbps. How many users receive that I wonder? This upgrade is nothing phenomenal.

  • Unlimited Speed—That’s Great news for Pakistan, I just see on Dawn News and check it personally from my friends who are using friendly user testing devices in Lahore. wi-tribe have completed initial testing in Lahore and Karachi successfully. Now Pakistan will prosper in all grounds Insha Allah

  • Some of these profiles seem like are created just to comment on this article. Another 24hoursdotpk like fake commenters? Only praising.

      • Witribe and you can go to hell from my side bro! It’s good to praise the truth.. Being a FUT user.,i have experienced good speed and yae baat such hae.. I have screenshots of my speed test pics…
        But i am glad you took out time to point me out of the huge comment list..Thank you

      • Hahah I don’t know if my account is fake or not..For reference you can check me on facebook and youtube.
        Yes i have my whole channel.

        But We do know now that you’re an employee of QUBEE.. hahah don’t support something which is not yours. It belongs to India and trust me it’s not benefiting Pakistan.

        Use google for your own reference!

        • Your comment show your maturity level, wonder what your channel would be about.
          Where did i mention something about Qubee or was i praising there service ???
          I am a happy Zong 4G user and before that, a long term wi-tribe customer. I did have fair bit of service and quality issues with them but nothing extra ordinary and that’s pretty normal. Though there services were pretty expensive with ridiculous data cap as compared to other competitors at that time.

      • Wah bhai wah! Xtreme – the name tells the world who is fake and who is not

        Bohat mehnat ki apne mera nam comment list se dhund ke nikalnay ki.
        Bohat he koi wailay insan ho ap!

        Point1)

        If i were fake why on the earth would i create a separate account and wait for the google confirmation and then comment on pro-pakistani. Aise behtar hae mei comment as a guest kerdoon idher. Nakal k lye be Aqal chaye bhaiya

        Point2)

        Like i said before i really don’t care it’s wi-tribe or nayatel, mujay aik achy speed mili test trial mei me LTE ke and mene mention krdee hae. Apko buri mili ap mention krdow. simple.

        • Glad you got some good speed and hope that ppl will get good speed after proper launching and at peak hours. Also hope pricing will be competitive with out any ridiculous data cap.

  • Instead of spending on purchase of additional bandwidth, these wishit cheapskates impose aggressive caching policies on their servers. So hacking into all sorts of accounts of other users is easiest. I was a victim twice, realized what was going on and tossed the service out for good.
    Now that 3/4G is expansively available, do yourself a favor and avoid Witribe like a plague.

    • Yea u r right. One of my private tracker account got hacked when I was using wi-tribe back then. PTCL is best if TWA, FL & StormFibre, are not available in ur area.

  • it’s here!??? itna wait kraya …Bhai ab launch be kardow proper.
    why is it not in the market yet?

  • I used same 3mb unlimited package 3 months at Lahore ,
    same speed as yours. Just switched back to PTCL again. 4mps unlimited with non stop performance.

  • I used to use Wi Tribe some years ago. Didn’t pay bill for 1 month because of pathetic service. They disconnected the internet. After 2 months they called me to return the device. I said “aa kar le jao apni bimari. 3 saal se tum logon ka customer tha par tumhen sirf apni device ki fikar hey”. On the same day they shamelessly sent a guy to pick it up. They really don’t care about retaining their customers. I wish them more bad luck.

  • Dear fellows, this is WiTribe, not any other telecom who announces and implement, and spend money on marketing campaigns to avoid any misguide and misleads to their customers.
    Do you know how many customers of this 200Mbps company? less than 1 hundred and 30 thousand connections, and actives are less than that, and still decreasing. it was 3 hundred thousand few years back.
    did you guys saw any print or electronic advert of this 200Mbps drama? no because it costs.They have zero budget for marketing.
    they were discussing LTE-A launch for the last one year.
    $100M ?? they would not even spend 100 thousand rupees LOL.
    mark this news and see when this will be available. it would never or may be in a very tiny area, which can be their own office :)

  • I have closed my Qubee account in the month September but daily I am getting the SMS bill from Witribe, now after a few days, they have double the bill amount. Qubee increase only Rs 50 after the due date but it a Great blessing of Wi-tribe that they double the amount of bill after a few days. Qubee guides us about all the addresses of its care centers through email, but hopelessly Wi-tribe not.
