Wateen’s Wireless Service

Shakeel Ahmed, friend and a regular contributor at TGP, has the following clip and quick information to share about Wateen’s wireless service in Lahore. The video clip shows a sneak peek by way of the synchronization process of the Motorolla CPE.

CPE was installed in DHA Lahore and has one ethernet + voice port on it. Download speed is around 120-130KBps with next hop latency around 15-20ms.

You can find some previous discussion on the wireless service by Wateen at TGP archives.

    This is great stuff, I am very interested to know the costs, the type contract they are offering and service quality in bad weather in highly dense populated areas. Speed is not an issues atm because under any circumstances WiMax will be better than dialup, and if the Wateen get some competitors then probably the capacity can be increased over time. It would also be very good if users can post their experiences based on the distance from broadcasting mast.

    i called to wateen few days back
    about their wimax service,
    and got following info.

    Package Cost 9000
    can be paid in installments
    say 3000 downpayment and 500 per month for 12 months

    what you got, is a wimax device,
    having a voice port
    and an ethernet port
    with about 256 Kbps of speed.

    in addition to 9000,
    you have to pay 1300 per month for the service.
    which includes 2GB download limit with 256Kbps.
    (altough its unilimite download till 31st this month)

    and for voice they have three tariffs.
    i-e 90/month line rent ,
    120/month line rent
    and 180/month line rent.

    only catch i got, is that, you can get back your payment
    if you are not satisfied by the service in 2/3 months,
    but if you want to discontinue service say after 7 months or even after a year, you have to return back the device.
    otherwise its sound cool.
    that you have a 256Kbps. connection on even road.

    waiting for coments of any user,
    so i might switch my PTCL DSL.

    This is good that Pakistan is going forward in this pretty new technology. However, I still think they should lower the rates and increase the quality of wired internet service before moving on to this… WiMax can provide much more faster data rates than mentioned above!

  9. rashad usama Says:

    What i got to know was something like this.
    .telephony service can only be acquired if u purchase the broadband service.otherwise if udon’t want it at all then it’s entirley upto u..and u hve to pay up like 3500Rs upfront, for the CPE,n write 11 post dated cheques for Rs1350,for the service. but the thing tht confuses me is the internet service tariff’s
    i didn’t understand tht..a 512kbps with 10GB download limit is for 2250rs/month??and what if u want more volume than 10gb??

    Hi I got myself wateen service in Oct 07, at that time I paid almost Rs18,000 for a year with 512 and voice number. It has been a great experience. For the first time in Pakistan,I was able to see you tube videos with out stopping.

    I am very happy with the service. But, Please note couple of my family friends have this service and they were not happy at all.

    Since, your modem is wireless so it all depends on the area you are using the service,areas like DHA has great service.

    Wateen’s customer support is worst, with every call and email they generate a new ticket and later closed it without solving problem, when I contacted them about it, they issued another ticket. My account is closed from last 2 weeks, I have called support, sent emails and visited karachi office many many times but they could not solve a simple billing mistake.
