      Agreed :)

  • hasan

    with every day increase in the number of 4g users, the quality is steeply going down the hill. Zong Mbb has started to suck when it comes to 4g speed and there 3g is a huge disappointment ( would say ufone has better 3g).
    i am using jazz 4g as well on my calling sim (prev warid), though their speed is actually quite good and consistent in my area but in other parts of Karachi call as well as 4g indoor reception sucks.

    • Muhammad Abrar Ali

      Ufone 3G is Best among all

      But Haters will gona hate

    • Zong’s 40-50Mbps speed is thing of past now. It hardly reaches 15-18Mbps on 4G. 3G sucks big time and 2G/Edge just refuses to work at all.

  • Owaiis

    ufone is the worst

  • Ufone really need to pay attention to expand their 3G coverage footprints. Its already 2018, 5 years since 3G/4G auction and they are yet to upgrade 50% of their total cell sites to 3G.
