  • Jazz’s total 3G/4G users are 14.4 Million out of 52 Million means 28% users on 3G/4G.

    Zong’s total 3G/4G users are 13.2 Million out of 28 Million means 47% users on 3G/4G.

    Telenor’s total 3G/4G users are 11.3 Million out of 40 Million means 28% users on 3G/4G.

    Ufone’s total 3G users are 5.3 Million out of 18 Million means 29% users on 3G.

    This shows Zong has highest ratio on 3G/4G users. Not only this but Zong’s 4G users are almost half of their 3G which shows people’s adoption of their 4G from 3G due to wide coverage. And in 2020 Zong can well have more 4G users than 3G and very few 2G users.

    • Its because Zong Mifi devices are most in use, its has some difference to collect sample for data analysis.

    • My jazz sim is not working on 2g on s8 plus with official local warranty? Any guess…

        • At given Location 3g signal are more powerful than 2g.. Jazz 2g operating frequency is pgsm 900 and 3g 2100mhz… According to frequency range 900mhz should have long range than 2100…

  • So we are ahead or at par with Ethiopia and other African countries? Lot of dumb ppl had been equating telecom boom as if country is progressing. We just spend foreign exchange that’s all story of telco sector. It is a sick industry where everything is foreign supplied and ppl in these companies just design advertisements.
