Warid has finally started giving 4G LTE sims to its customers located in Karachi, Islamabad, Faisalabad, and Lahore. The people who have compatible handsets have been getting SMS and phone calls from customer services at Warid asking them for their postal address details or requesting to create a backup of their sim as they would be receiving one pretty soon. If you are one of those unlucky ones who has a compatible phone but unfortunately haven’t received your sim so far, its ok you aren’t alone. But there is an easy solution to this problem of yours. Just visit your nearest Warid Business Center, and they will issue you a 4G LTE sim. Though they might charge your Rs. 100 for this new sim.
Well so far in Lahore, Warid hasn’t been able to offer any extra ordinary speeds. The best speed I was able to get was 8.07 download and 4.39 upload. I have run speedtest in DHA, Gulberg, Model Town & Township area. The best download speed received was in Model Town.
Currently the 4G LTE on Warid is absolutely free. But please remember, that if you aren’t in a 4G LTE coverage area your regular Edge/GPRS package will be charged.
Apart from poor speed, the other issue is that the fallback of 4G is Edge for Warid as compared to Zong whose fallback is 3G.
Anyway it is still a long way to go, so lets see how it all turns out. Really hoping for better speed from Warid in the near future.
If you are using Warid 4G LTE, please do share your speed test results with us in the comments.
