Hello wonderful people.I have been using the Zong 4g mbb device for quite some time now and have consistently gotten great speeds(22mbps download and 3-4 mbps upload) and ping out of it on games like rainbow Six Siege and insurgency sandstorm.Around 160-165.Not great not terrible.But since a month or so,the speed has gotten slow to a point where i can't even stream videos from youtube properly (have to set the resolution to 240p or 360p to have a steady playback).In the morning the speed goes down to a mere 3-4 mbps and the upload is a laughable 0.5 or so mbps , never even touching 1. Add to that the fact that google keeps asking me for CAPTCHAs for no F-ing reason because somehow my IP has been blacklisted and i have now come to the conclusion that it's not some VPN or malware on my end.This has been the case for a number of Zong CMpak related IPs.
I was wondering if anyone of you people use the Jazz 4g mifi devices and have any experience playing online games on them and if Jazz offers any significant advantage in speed and ping(routing) over Zong 4g.They have cheaper packages compared to zong and they claim to have won some award from OOKLA for having the best speeds or something.And before you tell me to get a broadband DSL connection: I have tried PTCL in the past.Their connection was very unstable and the speeds were well below what i subscribed for.

TLDR: Does anyone play games online on PC using Jazz mifi devices ? How much ping do you get ? Is the experience laggy and unstable ? Does Jazz offer any signifcant speed increase over Zong ? And can i test for coverage and signals by getting a sim and subscribing to a phone internet package.Would that correspond to the the mifi device internet speeds and coverage ?

Yes it should correspond.

See if PTCL GPON is available in your area now. PTCL is pretty decent with GPON connections.

@rafrocks I have tried using a Zong 4g device to play online games in the past and its not a good experience in my case, the ping while acceptable isn't good enough to enjoy twitchy shooter games. I see you are in LHR I would therefore recommend getting a connection from stormfiber which is by far the best ISP I have used for gaming, I mainly play MW multiplayer get 55-60 ping consistently haven't had a single issue.

Yeps,I m currently stuck with Zong too.The ping constantly stays at around 190-200 with frequent jumps to 300 and above.Unfortunately,the place where I live hasn't really kept up with the rest of the city.I mean it's basically the Somalia of Lahore (no offence to Somalis if there are any here) and so all these big fancy fiberoptic giants haven't really stepped in here.I basically have PTCL or Mobile broadband as the only options right now :(

@rafrocks Ah man that sucks, Have you tried contacting other ISP's though maybe one of them offer services in your area without your knowledge.

I know Stormfiber have been rapidly expanding in LHR contact them you might luck out.
