Ufone Postpay Data Roaming Tariffs

Ufone Postpay customers can roam in the following destinations. Note that you cannot always data roam in destinations where you can roam (calls and SMS). Additionally, although you may be able to roam with a roaming partner in a destination, it does not mean you can data roam with this partner too.

Notes:
1. All charges are per MB and in US Dollars ($)
2. It can take up to 60 days before you can see these roaming charges on your bill. As a result, you may hit your credit limit unexpectedly a month or two after roaming abroad.

Is data roaming as a Ufone Postpay customer worth it?

Data roaming with Ufone is expensive. As a result, it should be avoided to prevent bill shock. Paying up to $24 per MB (around Rs. 3800) is simply not worth the cost. For $24, you can purchase a local sim that would get you more than 1 MB.

Sure, there are some cheaper destinations such as the United States ($0.14/MB with T-Mobile). But even then you would pay $143.36/GB, which is still too expensive.

You would be better off getting a local SIM card.

Is Ufone Maritime roaming worth it?

Ufone Maritime roaming is expensive and not worth the high costs. Although roaming can be convenient, the costs will add up quickly. As a result, I would discourage to roam when on a cruise ship.

Use an internet-based app like Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, or Skype to stay in touch with your friends if the liner provides WIFI access.

Even if you have to pay for internet access, it would be cheaper than to roam. Or you could this as an opportunity to stay offline for a while.

Is roaming with Ufone worth it?

Ufone offers its prepaid customers many options that make roaming worth it. The most affordable roaming options are the Prepaid Roaming buckets for Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and Turkey. Those are roaming options you could consider.

However, you can usually get a local sim that gets you more perks for the most expensive buckets. Usually, those who are roaming on a network experience slower speeds because the roaming partner prioritizes the network of its customers instead of those who are roaming on it.

The Ufone SMS buckets are fairly cheap, but restrictive because you can only SMS with those buckets.

Roaming on Ufone standard Roaming Tariffs should be avoided at all cost because of high charges. This counts for both Ufone Prepaid and Postpaid customers.

One thing that makes roaming attractive is that you can roam in many destinations and on many networks around the world, which makes it convenient if you are considering to roam while abroad. However, you should closely keep an eye on your usage, as you can get charged a lot quickly, even for accepting phone calls.

Previously, we determined that data roaming on Ufone Standard Roaming Tariffs for Postpay customers is too expensive, as you can get charged up to $24 (US Dollars – 3800 PAK) per MB.

Ufone Prepay customers can data roam in only three destinations, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and United Kingdom, and those rates are flat – Rs. 17.93/MB. Extremely cheap compared to standard data roaming tariffs.

In short, roaming with Ufone can be worth it when roaming in select destinations where Roaming Buckets are available. The value for the money spent is reasonable when purchasing a Roaming Bucket. Roaming on Standard Tariffs should be avoided, as those charges are way too high, especially when data roaming. In those cases, getting a local sim or an international sim should be considered.
