#3

Ya I also heard

But I think PTA has'nt given permission yet...

will be launched in Oct. or Nov.


#4

it cannot be luanched until Pta gives permission which is not yet given.


#5

PTA gives permission but these cellular services don't want to start because they think market is not yet ready.


#6

First let them give full speed of GPRS/EDG than ask for 3G becuase speed will be same slow as GPRS/EDGE has


#7

usual speed depends upon network

maximum speed depends on handset...

i have used 3G in Saudia on MOBILY network , and i got downloading speed of 180 to 200 kb per second , it was an amazing experience . i wish 3g come to pakistan soon . I have read on pta site that they are gonna give license to 3 operators in november or december , and the 3g will be started by the start or mid of the next year . It cant be started this year.
