Broadband service providers in Pakistan not only give internet but have other services such as TV broadcast telephone line packages etc. which is not available by 3G/4G providers. Broadband connections rarely have disconnection issues whereas 3G/4G connections have disconnection problems all the time. Fixed wireless broadband is ahead in giving seamless and reliable connectivity as opposed to 3G that could be disrupted instantly.
