Introduction to 3G

    • What is 3G?

3G is state of the art mobile technology which gives you an enhanced internet experience on your mobile device. The most significant benefit is high speed access to video content along with generally faster mobile internet access. Some of services and applications which could be benefited from 3G are:

    • Full song downloads – a 3MB song which used to take 1min, will now take about 6 sec
    • Mobile TV – you can watch TV on your mobile with a choice of channels of all genres – news, entertainment, sports and so on.
    • Multi-player Gaming – now you can play games and compete with other people through multi-player gaming
    • Video clips that you can download or stream smoothly while on the move

    • What is the difference between 3G and 4G?

These are different technologies. However, very few phones (less than 1%) are 4G compatible and hence most customers will not be able to use 4G. Also, 4G handsets are very expensive (usually more than Rs. 75,000).
3G customers will see “3”, “3G”, “H”, or “H+” next to the network bars on their phones.
4G customers should see “LTE” or “4G” next to the network bars on their phones. If any 4G customer does not see “LTE” or “4G” on their phone, then their operator is actually providing 2G or 3G service, and not 4G.

    • I have seen that the auction for 3G in Pakistan had different categories namely “10 Mhz” and “5 Mhz” what exactly do they mean?

These are frequencies through which user capacity is allocated on the cellular network. Mobilink, being the largest network cellular operator in Pakistan, has secured twice the band (10 MHz) as compared to two other operators in the 3G auction and hence will be able to cater for more users and provide a better experience on its 3G network. 10 MHz means faster speed and more customers served in a better way.
