  • For me upload speed is more important than download. And Zong is breaking the records with its super fast upload speeds.

    • For me ping is much more important than speed. Better ping improves your browsing experience by alot. Even if you have 1Mbps connection on a low ping internet, websites will open up blazing fast.

      • that’s not necessary and you can’t open USA websites on 1ms ping so bandwidth circuit is matter because of contents of website like bbc, cnn etc they are too heavy pages that required heavy bandwidth.
