Okay, guess either
- Mobilink doesn't really have enough subscribers and is trying to get more and more customers hooked onto 3G, or
- Mobilink is being very generous.
Reason: the limited bundles that were available till 31 Oct - their validity has been extended to 30th November.
Enjoy your 2Mbps speed*
* I was on prepaid, and subscribed to their bundles. In Lahore or in Pindi/Isb, I NEVER got ANYTHING above 2Mbps. The only time I did manage to get better speeds (near 3 or 4 Mbps) is when it was Chaand Raat (just before Eid) and - that lasted for a week or two, perhaps. Then, back to this slow speed. And when they increased their data quota as a part of this limited promotion, I barely got speeds nearing 2 Mbps (as far as speedtests were concerned).
So - do I regret leaving Mobilink? Not really, no. Zong's 4G isn't all that (pretty crap latency in Pindi/Isb) though their speeds are decent (3G is just as good as their 4G, mind you, so you're not losing out by not using 4G).
Trivia: I was in Islamabad Club, and I tethered my phone to the laptop. I was getting 2.2 megaBYTES per second on 3G (that roughly translates to 22Mbps). On a multithreaded download (i.e. download manager). Yes, 3G.
Would you get this on Mobilink?
