PTCL Internet / DSL / IPTV and the recent package!

PTCL since after its privatisation has gained a lot of momentum and has launched quite exciting services. PTCL launched its DSL operations sometime back and has recently reduced their rates quite dramatically. It has created a buzz and people are seriously thinking about switching to PTCL. I haven’t used or experienced their internet connectivity personally so I can not comment about the quality of service in great detail. Perhaps someone among the dear visitors can provide us some valuable feedback and insight.

Anyway, coming back to the recently announced rates by PTCL for their Broadband connection, the charge schedule go this way:

512 kbps for Rs. 1199 a month
1 mbps for Rs. 1999 a month
2 mbps for Rs. 4999 a month

This seems like an amazing drop and on the surface looks to be quite competitive. Coupled with free installation, free modem and unlimited bandwidth — and ofcourse the added benefit and facility of having the DSL charges billed with the PTCL phone bill — is making PTCL stand out from the crowd at the moment.

However, I believe one department that seriously needs attention is PTCL’s customer care. There have been numerous occassions and news regarding the poor performance and troubleshooting when an instance arises. Nevertheless, Pakistan ISP industry is up for some interesting turns.

    2. Fox says:

      PTCL Sux for sure… was much better when they had restricted users on a QUOTA for other packages.. the moment they removed the restriction though it felt better for other users but i disagree.. their service got worse due to too much overload.. you guys get 135 KB over 512KB speed… and i have 2mpbs installed.. and its an ONU line and the max speed i get is 153 – 180

      PTCL DSL Big thumb Down…

    4. Muhammad Iqbal says:

      Mr. Muhammad Tahir Mushtaq, Executive Vice President HR PTCL is currently undergoing investigations by a desciplinary comittee consisting of Etisalat employees of the General Council after getting their hands on solid proof of the accusations of bribery. The proof consists of recorded telephone and face to face conversations where Mr. Tahir Mushtaq was asking for bribes for inducting candidates in PTCL. Proof also consists of somewhat clear photographs taken from a mobile phone camera where Mr. Tahir Mushtaq is shown taking bribes.

      The comittee’s recommendations will be given by February 2009.

      Try to use OpenDNS DNS servers. PTCL’s DNS sucks… and most of the problem are generated by their DNS server over-crowding

      DNS 1 : 208.67.222.222
      DNS 2 : 208.67.220.220

      You can even block all the porn sites by this DNS service. However, people can bypass this DNS service, unless you re-route them to the same DNS server again (a bit complicated, but mostly for IT professionals and people with customizable routers)
