Telenor Pakistan has offered its best mobile Internet monthly package in history. It is a good news to mobile Internet users in Pakistan but the bad news is that the newly introduced package is still worse than that of Zong's Internet packages. Telenor is offering only 500MB data/month for Rs. 250. If we compare the package price of Telenor with that of Zong monthly mobile Internet bundle, Zong leads as it is providing 2GB data/month for just Rs. 200.
If we compare the connection speed of both services, Telenor is undoubtedly superior. Telenor is preferred for mobile Internet by mobile users due its consistency. Zong's connection speed greatly reduces in peak hours (6:00 PM-12:00 AM) and even fast loading websites couldn't be opened for several minutes. On the other hand, Telenor is good as the speed doesn't affected terribly like that of Zong.
As we know that all mobile networks in Pakistan are second generation (2G). The facility of broadband Internet is also unavailable in many parts of the country. In these circumstances, a majority of Internet users depend on the cellular networks to avail the facility of Internet. The public is waiting for the upgrade of the networks but we are not expecting this transformation in near future. So we can say that we'll have to depend on GPRS and EDGE of the cellular networks till any unpredictable change occurs. Although PTCL is reaching throughout the country with its competence, but still a majority of the common people will be waiting for any easy service.
So we were talking about the new monthly mobile Internet package of Telenor. The question arises here, for which service you should go for? Telenor or Zong? The answer is, if you only browse the Internet, then still you can mange your whole month with the 500MB which Telenor allots you for Rs 250 and you should go for it as the speed in Telenor is better than that of Zong.. Zong will give you 2GB on the other hand. If the Zong services are better in your area, then you should surely go for Zong, as you will get 2GB data/month for only Rs. 200. Simply experiment by testing both services and then select the one which works well for you.
