Ufone UrEDGE

Ufone has introduced Ufone UrEDGE.
GPRS/EDGE packages. Package details are as follow.

Sr. # UrEDGE
package Name
Subscription Charges Price per MB Validity Activation SMS Shortcode
1. UrEDGE 5 5 MB Rs. 50/- Rs. 10/- 15 Days 801
2. UrEDGE 30 30 MB Rs. 150/- Rs. 5.00/- 30 Days 802
3. UrEDGE Unlimited Fair Use Policy* Rs. 500/- Rs. 0.33/- 30 Days 803
* 1.5 GB data transfer limit as per fair use policy.

A fair usage policy of 1.5 GB is applied on the unlimited package. Thats not fair. Although ufone claims it to be the lowest mobile internet charges ever its not so.  Zong unlimited internet is even lower with Rs. 400/month for unlimited GPRS/EDGE. This package is surely not good if you want to use it with your PC because of the Data Transfer Limit and Cost.
The actual cost that the customer has to pay will be about Rs. 695 ( Rs. 500 + 21 % GST + 10% Advance Income Tax + 5% Service Charges). And the speed certainly is not very good. However, for use on your cell phone the package is ok.

Complete packages & tariff details can be pulled by sending SMS ‘info’ to 800 and to check remaining data package volume & expiry date you can send USSD command to *706# or call 706.   After expiry of UrEDGE Data package the data charges will be reverted to standard GPRS charges of Rs. 15/- per MB.
