Beware of UFONE EDGE USB

UFONE EDGE giving the download speed between 2-Kbps against their claim of 60-150 Kbps. While Upload speed is much more lower and its around less 2 Kbps against 20-50 Kbps. This speed is possible when I am getting 95-99% signal reception.

The Claim is false and they are cheating their customer. The cost of USB EDGE is 7000 Rs.

Can anyone Help. What should i do?

After using different mobile internet services i have developed a general concept that dont believe in mobile internet services. They all are same. But 2kbps is scocking. You must talk to customer service center.

is it 2 Kbps (i.e. kilobits per sec) or KBps (i.e. kilobytes per sec) ??

KBps, I think

Kbps will be really slow

I was also using mobile internet service but not EDGE, I used GPRS and always get 2kb max on Ufone so i cannot download or browse anything.

I Contacted the both service centre & call centre 5-7 times in 3 days, the persons in service centre simply dont have any idea of this USB service related issues. I also emailed at differnet email address of concerned USB support persons along with screen shots of statistics, but no response yet.

I suggest that nobody should buy any company's USB Modem service until they test it personaly at thier sales centre.

who ever wanted evidence of my cliam regarding very poor quality of both dowloading and uploading can ask me to provide them scheen shots of Ufone Edge modem Statistics interface. I got it on 29th Dec., and yet i havent received download speed of more than 5Kbps when downloaded from accelarator, & when downloading within windows its just remain under 2.3Kbps.

I can provide anyone with screen shots of all this claims.......

Yes you can use. Just install the software cd came with the mobile set, You will also find the DC-60 cable in that box. Conect your mible with that casble to your computer.See if it connects, make sure software is installed. All done then just use that software to use internet with your handset. Make sure operator settings are installed before connecting like Zong , warid whatever plan you choose to go.

If you face problems search on google for tutorial or hit me a message. Cheers

man ufone's edge has just started sucking

i cant even open google on it.......

I went to Ufone Sales Center to buy Ufone USB edge but they told me that there is some problem in there network and there maximum speed on edge is 4 kbps and also they have no idea when this problem will solve so I have postponed it.

Interestingly, the people at customer service center uptil now had no idea about the problem which Ufone is facing in its USB Edge network, I had visited them several times there and argued that they should not have sold me the service knowing that there is a continuous problem with their network. Now i can say after all this that all of them are misleading people with Kbps and KBps.

1 KB/s = 1024 bytes per second

1 kb/s = 1000 bits per second

1024 kb = 1 mb (megabyte)

Therefore if you ask for a 1Mbps broadband connection, it will take minimum 8 seconds to download a 1 MB file from the internet.
