Let’s talk about different internet service providers now:
Best ISPs for Freelancers in Pakistan
For most of the freelancers who have to surf a lot on the internet, or for those who work on YouTube, PTCL broadband is the best internet service provider. With this landline-based internet service, you can use unlimited data for your work and other purposes.
If the whole family is using the internet at home, then you should go for the PTCL broadband internet as it is very economical and stable as well. Those freelancers in Pakistan who need to watch YouTube videos for learning purposes; PTCL is a life-saving option for them.
If I talk about my own usage, then I have used 400+ GB of internet data last month. This is because whole my family uses the internet whereas, I, myself also use a lot of data to download and upload YouTube videos.
If you are making money from YouTube in Pakistan, again, PTCL is the only option that you can afford at the start. But if you have a good budget, then yes, you can go for the 4G services as well.
4G INTERNET SERVICES
If you have limited usage and you need high-speed internet, then 4G internet service providers would be the best choice for you. For those freelancers in Pakistan who use data services only for their work, 4G internet packages are affordable and best for them.
Those who make money by writing articles, or they have joined freelance marketplaces like Fiverr, Upwork, and others to offer their professional graphic designing work, they don’t need unlimited internet data.
There are different 4G internet service providers in Pakistan. These are Jazz, Zong, Ufone, and Telenor. In this article, I will only talk about Zong and Jazz and their different packages.
ZONG 4G INTERNET
Zong 4G is owned by China Mobile Company and it covers the largest geographical area in Pakistan with their 4G internet service. Zong 4G is all set to provide the 5G internet service as well and this service will be started once licenses are provided by the Government of Pakistan.
You can find various Zong 4g monthly packages and can select any package of your choice. Along with monthly packages, you can also select any package from the Weekly 4G packages of Zong. A monthly premium package can be activated for PKR. 1000-/ and you will get 15GB internet and 15GB YouTube data in this package. Total 30GB for 1 month.
But, the better option according to me is the Super Weekly Max offer. In this offer, you will get the 30 GB of the internet in only PKR. 300-/ for 1 week. In this package, you will get 15GB internet and 15GB YouTube. So if you activate this offer 4 times in a month, you will get 60GB Internet and 60GB YouTube data for a total of 1200-/ Rs. Which is a much better option, I believe.
Most of the freelancers in Pakistan work during the night time. So, if you are one of those, then the Zong Mega Data offer is best for you. In this offer, you will get 50GB Internet for 7 days in just Rs.100-/ and you can use it from 1 am to 9 am. In this way, you will be able to get 200GB data for a month in just Rs. 400-/. But remember, it is only for those freelancers who work late at night.
JAZZ 4G INTERNET
Same like Zong, Jazz is also the biggest cellular network in Pakistan provides 4GB internet services to the whole of Pakistan. Jazz is also ready to provide 5G services as they also tested the 5G network successfully.
If you are a late-night user, then Jazz offers a similar package that we discussed in the ZONG section. You can get 25GB data to use from 12 AM to 9 AM for 7 days in just Rs. 60-/. The good thing about this package is that its time starts 1 hr earlier than the Zong.
If we talk about the Jazz 4G weekly packages, then Internet Weekly Mega Plus package is the best package in Rs. 266 and you will get 24GB internet for 7 days. In monthly 4G packages, JAZZ offers an Internet monthly supreme package where you get 20GB data in total for just Rs. 500-/. In this package, 10 GB of data is available for 24 hrs, while another 10 GB can be used from 2 am to 2 pm which is quite good.
