Are you enticed by this offer?

High speed EDGE? ... Why are they calling it high-speed. how is 236k high speed when the broadband companies alliance just said 256k is the minimum speed for anything to be called 'broadband' (in otherwords high speed).

These companies are doing things that they were supposed to do in 2002.

Date check for you ufone. this is 2009. 3G please.

In Pakistan, 3g might be available in 2020!

3G will be available after next coup d'état :)
