My New Internet Friend: ZONG

ZONG 4g & 3G InternetI am super excited as well as happy and I would call September 11th, 2015 a memorable day when I made a new friend.

Though 9/11 is marked as a black day when terrorists had hit WTC (World Trade Center) with airplanes in 2001 and I feel so sorry of the lost lives on that day…

For me, I broke 5-years old friendship chain on September 11th, 2015.

And that was my internet connection… an ever-long service I used to use.

Why I Broke Friendship

Had been two months I was constantly facing connectivity issues, despite of paying high amount to get the internet, I was not satisfied with the service I kept on receiving. In last 5-years, PTCL (Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited) was the only available internet service in my village. At the time I had two connections from the same company. And guess what? When the services from that ISP were down, both of the connections kept going down at the same time.

Now, things are changed… and better.. a lot… finally!

With Whom I Made Friendship Now

ZONG, a CMPak Limited company (China Mobile Pakistan). They are the first-ever 4G with 3G license holder in Pakistan.

I acquired their 4G’s service, though my village is 3G-enabled for now and 4G service is not available yet but once it does in the near-future, I will be shifted automatically to 4G due to my device supports 4G, 3G and 2G depends upon coverage.

How I Acquired ZONG

I traveled about 100KM + 100KM (two rounds) to Faisalabad, the nearest city from my village just to acquire the internet in same day and on motorbike.

I did it and really wanted to do it today.. to get rid from PTCL.. the service that was a headache.. a severe one for me.

ZONG 3G Internet Speed Test

Now, I am satisfied with the ZONG’s service by far. Speed is good as well as connectivity.

Adeel, I can relate to these moments (in a way). I am glad that you found a new friend. Mobile internet is so important nowadays.

I was 16 years old (at that time I was in PK) and used to borrow / acquire 100 RS from my mother to top up my dial-up internet account. It was at 20rs/hr so 5 hours worth of internet. In hot summer days when everyone was sleeping, I used to take the bus, go to the other part of the city (Peshawar) to top up my account. You had to physically go to the counter to pay money to get the account topped up at that time.

Such a nice feeling that I will have 5 hours of internet in the night (mostly IRC chatting at that time ;))

Have a nice day. Nice that you shared this little moment with us.

    WaalaikumasalaN Nabeel bhai,

    Sure, why not. 🙂

    The 4G device is of PKR. 2000 and the package is of 50GB/month for PKR. 2000/month. Speed is good compare to PTCL and Telenor in my village. I am so sure you’ll be happy with the service of ZONG.

    Do let me know if you need any further information. 🙂

    Thanks!

Hey Adeel,

Addel, this is the first time I am hearing anything by the name Zong. I guess it may not be useful to me in Nigeria. One thing is certain here and that is the fact that you are so happy about your new service provider.

Hi Adeel,

I hope your friend is doing well, I am hearing first time about ZONG, I know how difficult it is if we don’t get good connectivity even after paying the huge amount to our internet service providers.

Now you have good connectivity looking more posts from your side, thanks for sharing information about your new ZONG.
