Well…I would prefer zong because of 2gb or something cap on warid. But it depends on the area you live. If both are offering edge in that area…Go for zong… Edge coverage of warid is not very good…Limited to big cities,same is the case with Warid. Telenor has the best edge coverage…They have a 2 gb or something cap on their unlimited package too…

The potential maximum on Class 10 mobile phone is 29KBps, but you will get around 27KBps.

I use zong and it gives me 15-20KB/sec.

I use Zong and it gives download speeds of 15-20 KB/s plus there is no download limit. I would vote for Zong. It works well for me. Coverage wise I would say Telenor has the upper hand in EDGE.

does zong allow P2P download?

only download

u cant upload... until u have a dedicated ip which u cant get on any cell network atleast in pakistan

Yes Zong allows P2P download. I am using utorrent to download stuff and it works on ZONG.

Use Warid EDGE, gives much better speed than zong, i get aroud 25-30 KB/s

yeah. it allows streaming too. i use tv and radio apps on my mobile. Ufone does not allow both.

Warid recently updated their back-end network, and now the traffic is distributed over around 8 servers, meaning that if you refresh any website that tells you your public IP, it will revolve around those 8 servers. This is a speed test I just took, which again reminds me that this is my mobiles maximum speed:

Zong finally has an E sign in my area, but after connecting I can't browse anything. Classic Zong.... Mobilink still has just GPRS coverage.

^^

man i dont think we shud talk about warid now while talking about unlimited edge service cuz warid is now no more unlimited........................

Which Mobile phone will give the best result to use edge for data access? I want to access the internet on my pc using cellphone?

Choose mobile which has at least EDGE class 10 (or better like class 11 or 12). I am using Samsung E200 (EDGE class 10) having modem speed of 236.8 kilobits/sec. I am getting average downloading speed of 20–25 kilobytes/sec and uploading speed of 6–8 kilobytes/sec. I have performed the speed test of my ZoNG EDGE connected from mobile and this is the result:

http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o292/usman100/ScreenShots/zongspeed10.gif

Download speed: 183 kilobits/sec (or 22.9 kilobytes/sec)

Upload speed: 55 kilobits/sec (or 6.9 kilobytes/sec)

Location: Karachi, PAKISTAN

Zong is using Cybernet services as I have checked their IP address.

Zong has EDGE in whole Karachi or is it area-dependent in KHI too?

PS: i recieve EDGE signals on Ufone, Telenor, never tried Zong (yet)

but 400PKR for unlimited (is it truly unlimited?) is luring me into Zong's trap ;)

Brother, Yes! ZoNG is classic. See my speed test of ZoNG EDGE connected from my mobile Samsung E200 at peak hours (8:34PM) :

http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o292/usman100/ScreenShots/modem15ee.gif

Download speed: 233 kilobits/sec (or 29.1 kilobytes/sec)

Upload speed: 59 kilobits/sec (or 7.4 kilobytes/sec)

This is the speed which I have got only once but this also means that ZoNG can achieve this high speed at 100% performance.

Your speed test has done in off-peak hours (6:46AM). Please also mention your area location because wireless connections are very much dependent on the area location.

ZoNG EDGE is not in whole of karachi but most of it. I am using ZoNG unlimited since May 2008 and it is still unlimited. I don’t know how long they can provide unlimited as you have seen that Telenor and Warid unlimited packages have limit of 2GB monthly bandwidth. ZoNG has no limit till now. I am from Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Karachi having EDGE signals. Make sure that your mobile has EDGE facility. If not, then you can only receive GPRS signals!
