You should better check out Wateen.com for their packages and latest updates. But i would suggest you not to use such an expensive services.


#10

what is overall performance of wateen in karachi ?


#11

Using from last one year ^ Pretty satisfied with the connection but they need to introduce the new packages ?

I heard the technology wateen using is old so we will never get anything more then 1MB ? Is that true ?


#12

Im wondering why no wimax operator has anything more than 1MB, and wateen tariff structure is ages old


#13

They don't listen anymore.


#14

I called them and answer was:

WiMAX CPE does not support more than 1mbps right now. Maybe in future with arrival of different CPE.

IIRC, for few weeks in 2010, Wateen login system was down and I was getting unclocked speed. I measured it, it was average at 1.6Mbit to 1.75Mbit. But 1.6Mbit was consistant speed. Trust me it was a lot faster than my usual 1Mbit. There were reports that some people got near/closer to 2Mbit speed in Karachi.

As of my experience, it may be true that Wateen may not be able to give 2Mbit but even 50% increase (1.5Mbit) is a lot more than current 1Mbit.

Wateen should consider to launch new package of 1.5Mbit at reasonble price (Rs. 1800 or Rs. 2000 per month).
