Wireless broadband is the ultimate connected service. With the recent commercial launch of Mobilink Infinity–Mobilink’s WiMAX Internet and voice services – people of Karachi have one more choice. For Mobilink this is an important milestone: they started off as a GSM telecom company and now they provide complete telecommunications services. Obviously the service coverage is limited but its a matter of time before the coverage is widened.
But there is one thing which is more important than rates: execution and customer service. It seems that Infinity has done its home work and is ready to deliver on the promises mentioned on its website. But the only way to know is to find from the actual users in Karachi!
Mobilink Infinity rates are quite reasonable. CPE Cost is Rs 12,000 (approx.USD 160) which is being offered at a subsidized cost of Rs 6000 (usd 85 approx). One-tme setup charges are Rs 2000 (usd 30 approx). These have been waived off at the initial launch. Let’s see how the Mobilink offering fares in Karachi.
