They were providing FTTH in Karachi, no news about them expanding to other cities.

The cables don't have to be for home internet though, they could just be setting up a new tower somewhere.

10 Mbps - 2000 rs / month
20 Mbps - 3000 rs / month

According to a Zong rep, both packages had 500 GBP FUP which is ridiculous, but it's no wonder that the launch wasn't a success since we haven't heard about their FTTH since that one press release that they published in 2019. It's not even mentioned on their website.

As you can clearly see, that's a business package. You would need a corporate account with Zong to get this.

Since it claims to be unaffected by peak time, it's probably using a dedicated band and may even require special equipment to run.

Expect costs upwards of 30k/month depending on what your requirements are.

Or the contention ratio isn't there. I don't think a separate band is needed - all you need to do is throttle customers on group A, and not throttle customers on group B, whilst giving priority to group B customers over group A.

4G is standard LTE.
The + means carrier aggregation (CA) is taking place (combining different carriers/frequencies to achieve the intended throughput) aka intraband LTE-A

If you're getting 25Mbps on CA, then a single-aggregated signal would give you a slower speed in all cases.

Which locale/city are you posting from?

Yes, I think it's a problem speed when one aggregated a B1 low signal. I live in a village near wah and Taxila . yesterday I go Wahcantt. I get speed up to 60mbps on B1+B3

So...

Telenor is using the full 10Mhz on 850Mhz, and 5 Mhz on 1800Mhz.

Jazz now has 10Mhz on 900Mhz, and 20 on 1800Mhz.

Zong keeps flip-flopping between 15 and 20Mhz on 1800Mhz, but I'm not sure what's going on with 4G in 2100Mhz - it was initially 10Mhz, then I stopped seeing it.

Has anyone noticed an improvement in Telenor's performance? I haven't seen any improvements in Jazz's download speeds per se. I have noticed an increase in Zong's overall speeds though (but this was during aggregation).

Not sure how much of an improvement anyone will see with Telenor's upgrade, but one can only hope.

When did you stop seeing Zong's 2100 MHz? It was working in mid-January which is when I last used it and showed some very impressive results.

I don't think they stopped - yesterday, in another location, I saw 2100Mhz (as in, the phone connected to it), but wasn't aggregating the signal.

Yes, my testing method was heavily flawed (without a SIM card), although I've managed my phone to aggregate the signal even though I'm not connected to the actual network with a working SIM. So - take my post with a grain of salt.

But I have noticed that Mobilink's 900Mhz is now on 10Mhz, so that's that! And - if nperf.com's maps are accurate, they finally have carrier aggregation in different parts of the country.

Hey Guys I am back.
So after buying a flagship grade processor phone (snapdragon 870) I came to know that 4G speed also depends on LTE modem of your device.
Here I confirm that Zong is using CA between bands 1+3 with 10+20 MHz bandwidth. Speed has improved a LOT. I am getting more than 100 Mbps in my room.
On the other Hand Jazz is still on single band 3 with 20 MHz 4G. At morning my speed goes around 65 Mbps and at night it goes down to 35 Mbps which is pretty good as well.
Telenor is using 10+5 MHz band now between bands 5+3. Their speed improved on morning and provides upto 50 Mbps but in the evening it goes down to below 10 Mbps and at peak hours (sorry no screenshot) it goes down further to below 2 Mbps.

    games these days are all like this one way or another. The devs try to focus on one thing to cater to a specific audience and forget the rest of the elements.
