    AoA.. In Wireless 4G telecom, different companies use different spectrum for their wireless networks Pakistan some companies are using 5 megahertz spectrum and some companies in Pakistan are using 10 megahertz spectrum for their 4G internet service. The difference is the 4g spectrum your speed can be lower and depending upon the capacity of users on that cell site if you have 10 megahertz spectrum you have higher capacity means your pipe is bigger some more water can flow through that if you’re spectrum is $5 so less water will come out but at slower speed this is an example so if you have 10 megahertz spectrum you’ll have to get double the speed but with that some things to keep in mind is that how much are the users on this cell site on East sector of the cell site. typically in Pakistan if you are using a 3G network which has being sold as 4G network also part GSM HSPDA plus you will see speeds if its a average capacity on the side the speech should be between 3 to 5 mbps but if it is 10 mhz spectrum and number of users is average you will see your speed between 30 to 35 megabits per second it also depends upon the fiber optic link between the switch / exchange to the cell site if that optic fiber link the bestie and bandwidth is limited then even though you are using LTE 10 megahertz you will still see lower speed so there are a lot of variables but over all of the companies which offer seems to offer 4G services is a slower GSM advance or you can say HSPD plus network portrayed as 4G make sure that is not a 4G Network LTE is the only 4G network or WiMAX is a dying technology so everybody is going to 4G network I hope it helps

    4g ke disadvantages bata di please bai

  15. Owais VZW says:

    As far as dis-advantages are concerned, there are NONE. Some people might argue that it rains battery life more which is incorrect, The reason battery life will be drained more is because of your usage or you are in poor coverage area and your device has to power up to listen to the tower messages at high power between (-15Dbm to -25dBm). Also how your network is considered because in LTE 4G your device unlike a Voice call is sending and receiving messages from network. depending upon how much internal ACK NACK messages are going on it can also drain the battery life. !!!!!!! Always remember to see if you are in GOOD , MARGINAL or POOR coverage area!!!!!!! DO NOT REPLY on Coverage Bars which phone shows, they are good for those who are not technical people, Go to your phone settings> ABOUT PHONE> Network and you will see in case of LTE RSRP should be as follows.

    GOOD Coverage RSRP = -45dB to -95dB
    Average Coverage RSRP = -95 dB to -109dB
    Poor Coverage RSRP = -109dB to -120dB……

      Owais bhai…
      I need your kind suggestion in selecting 3G or 4G services. I am a student and part time freelancer. I am using PTCL 4MB DSL service. PTCL speed is good in other time but it is worst during 6pm-12am (Pak time) not even 1Mbps download (on speedtest.net) and unfortunately that’s is the time I have to be there to provide my services to clients (Online IT support)…
      After years of struggle I have been able to get a few good clients who trust me as reliable service provider and due to this issue (PTCL’s low internet speed) I am loosing them one by one… You know if one client lost due unreliable service means one negative feedback on profile that is enough to stop more than 5 new clients to come…
      I need 3Mbps (at speedtest.net) download and 1Mbps upload at least to run my processes smoothly. kindly let me know which telecom company in Pakistan can provide me this speed during (6pm-12am Pak time). I will see into prices myself later for now I only need to find out the speed I need.
      One thing to mention here I don’t need to process any kind of heavy files. I just need to upload and view (download) light sized Web pages… and surfing Web pages…

      My Location: Peshawar City.

      Waiting for your kind suggestion…

      With Best Regards,
      Fahad Khan

    *** Same exact thing happened with me.. now they are making fool its customer.. 3G K NAME PE 2G CHALA RHE HAIN.. something serious mishap happened with mobilink system and they are trying to hide this reality from their customers!! I think this issue will not be resolved until or unless they will be got showcase notice from PTA… dont panic… a simple solution is to be migrated to another network

  25. shakeel aslam says:

    dear usman,
    please let me know which cellular company is provideing fastest 3g service

  26. Rahul says:

    12.5 mbps maximum speed for 4G? Are you serious sir? I’m afraid that’s too slow. My 4G gives me 62 mbps on good days and 48-50 mbps on average days. I’m from Mumbai.

  27. Yasir says:

    India is best always in any field…
    india give 62mbps and pakistan is going to 12 mbps hahah….
    what a joke for pakistanis…
    i m also pakistani…afsooos

  28. Arslan says:

    Yasir for your kind information,Google is fastest and easiest source to find out about anything anywhere in the world.So if you type in Google countries with lowest internet speed,India will pop up in top ten lowest internet speed countries.. But you Don’t find in Pakistan…so this is not joke and I am Pakistani also…

  29. naveed azhar says:

    ZONG 4G is totally fraud. They are cheating the consumer. I have used this and 50GB used within 15 days as I only use for browsing and did not dowload any movie . I strongly suggest not to buy that.
