In 2018, PTA conducted quarterly surveys in 27 cities across Pakistan to monitor the quality of service being provided by the telecom operators in Pakistan.

 

All the telcos were ranked on various metrics for performance in data, voice, and SMS.

Here’s how they performed:

Voice

Service Accessibility

Ufone led with a network availability of 99.90% while Telenor was last among the major telcos with a network availability of 98.98%.

Grade of service

Have you ever tried using the services provided by your cell service provider and been unable to, despite the network indicator showing signals are available? That’s called network blocking and grade of service measures exactly that.

Ufone had the best grade of service with a score of 0.10% while Telenor was last with 1.02%.
