What’s The Best Mobilink 3G Data Bundle & How To Activate It
Until November 24th, 2014, Mobilink is providing the best 3G packages on prepaid SIMs which can be easily activated on any handset that supports 3G. Package number 4 to 7 are extremely good in case one needs to make heavy 3G data consumption and prices are very affordable. Streaming the videos and listening to the music was never that easy on smartphones, until 3G arrived in Pakistan or unless you have 24/7 WiFi connectivity. The current prepaid 3G data bundles offered by Mobilink will give tough time to PTCL which is considered to be the internet connectivity back bone in Pakistan.
According to me Best Mobilink 3G Data Bundles With Highest Data and Lowest Cost Are:
1. 3G Weekly Bundle offering 1.5 GB Data for 7 Days @ Rs. 60
2. 3G Monthly Bundle Heavy offering 4.5 GB Data for 1 Month @ Rs. 400
3. 3G Monthly Super Bundle offering 12 GB Data for 1 Month @ Rs. 1000
I have personally started using Mobilink’s 3G instead of PTCL at my working environment. I will continue to use Mobilink’s 3G services since I am getting pretty good downloading and uploading speed at a very good latency. I would also like to mention that download / upload speeds of Mobilink 3G remain good during the daytime, however due to traffic surge and increase in number of users, download / upload speeds decline in evening and night. Mobilink has dropped its introductory packages and decreased the data volume thus increasing the price to many folds.
Following are the 3G Data Bundles offered by Mobilink, you can easily activate them using the 3G subscription codes and if you need to know the current data consumption station, you can dial and check with Bundle Status codes mentioned below.
