So this time Zong beat Jazz in speedtest survey of Opensignal. Zong took 5 awards to home in different categaries and rest of the 2 went to Ufone which are calling app and gaming experiences. Telenor average 4G speed come down to below 4 Mbps. Here is full report

Yep, saw that. Told you something was up with Zong... and in a good way.

I'm still waiting for that thing called VoLTE.

1. I'll believe it when I see it.
2. The VoLTE logo can appear when there's no call in place.
3. The third screenshot - unless I see a call counter AND a VoLTE sign together, I won't buy it.

Good idea
Good idea? This news has existed longer than Trump's presidency.

They've been wanting to sell but not sell and sell and then not sell for a long time. Now, it's sell.

The more potent question is - who's going to buy it?

FTFY.

The article mentioned Zong, but are they really in any position to be buying Ufone?

After all, what will it give them? Very little spectrum and the burden of 22 million additional customers.

Logical choice for me is Telenor (depends on the telenor group's mood), doesn't make sense for Zong or Jazz atm.

Well there are only two potential buyers Telenor and Zong.
Telenor needs extra spectrum badly and by buying Ufone they will not only get spectrum to compete Jazz but also they will become Largest network in the country. So after buying Ufone Telenor can compete in data segment in which they are far behind jazz and zong.
But problem is the money here. Telenor Global seems like in no mood to invest that much amount in Pakistan considering their ARPU. So Telenor will prefer a merger (by shares) with Ufone instead of cash acquisition. Which could be a road blocker deal between both companies.

On the other hand Zong is already way ahead in data segment and badly want to compete with Jazz. They already have enough spectrum, all they need is more customers to become an operator like the level of Jazz (with more than 50 M customers). Zong does not have many Hybrid customers and by buying Ufone they can add lotal Ufone Super Card customers. Since China is on the back of Zong, Money and backdoor approvals by Govt would not be an issue for them (since Govt is 74% share holder in Ufone).

Keeping this in my My vote is for Zong. Because Telenor and Ufone after merger will still be Telenor and Ufone.

    Get a Nokia if you want continued updates...even my Nokia 2.2 has Android 10 but my S8+ doesn’t lol

  • GloriousChicken GloriousChicken:
    In that case, I should probably avoid the Mi Note 10 Lite, its older than the other two. Barely any good phones in 60K that isn't samsung. A71 is a good deal too but that is a year old as well.

    That's a good point. Realme 7 Pro has a AMOLED display, which is why its attractive though I've no idea about Realmes software support unlike Xiaomi.
    Yeah, these phones often have attractive features and seem like great value (most of them are) upfront, but if you want continued software updates so the phone lasts long, most of them don't live up to that promise.

    easier way to narrow down is buying based on software support. If the phones aren't confirmed to get Android updates, I personally think they should be avoided.
