3G and 4G Speed in Pakistan
As you know 3G and 4G licences have been given to telecom companies recently is Pakistan. This was a huge milestone and finally people is Pakistan will be able to fully utilize the power of smartphones and high speed internet to their advantage.
Although the telecom companies have won the licence auction, Its still some time before they actually launch the 3g / 4G services in Paksitan. Up till now we have only been able to have EDGE on the mobile phones .
So what speeds you can get with 3G and 4G connections. Lets take a look at the comparison below. Now these speeds which we have mentioned below are based on optimum performance. The actual 3g / 4g Speed may vary in Pakistan depending on the network load and times .
These speeds are mentioned in Bytes per seconds. Normally when you look at the standards you get the speeds in bits per second. But thats just confusing. I have made it simpler for you to understand by mentioning in bytes per second because that is what we see on the devices.
|Edge||3G||4G / LTE|
|Max Download Speed||48 KB/s||9 MB/s||12.5 MB/s|
|Max Upload Speed||7.5 KB/s||256 KB/s||6.25 MB/s|
