AK Rs. 1,500 will be charged as downgrade charges from all 1 Mbps and Higher Packages (Student & Regular) if they Opt into this package —- why they are charging such very big amount for downgrading ?????? Muhammad Anas why they won;t charge? I mean what is PTCL for? They have to clear government dues too so they are right to charge for anything including but not limited to upgrading/downgrading. http://www.facebook.com/naeem.aka.phenom Muhammad Naeem Uddin good offer, i think arifktk A very shrew way of telling students that you are not welcome. Will i ever see a package from PTCL without any ifs and buts. http://www.itechminder.com/ Zareen Khan i’m agree with you Salman Abbas. Customer A very affordable package and required now that student package is available at Rs. 1099 per month. I think it makes commercial sense to cap the package if you want to make it affordable :). And downgrade charge of 1500 are on the higher side but that is something that happens anywhere else in th world as well. At least in USA they do charge you for downgrading your packages. http://sms808.blogspot.com/ Muneer Ahmad It takes a year for PTCL to think of new packages and implement them on last date of the year still not impressive.. Shuja PTCL has come up with many attractive packages in past one year and all are pretty impressive for a regular internet user like me. Witribe, Wateen, Qubee and other internet services have failed to offer such customer friendly packages. You can compare the packages on PTCL with any other ISP. I, as a user, am totally satisfied with the EVO and Nitro packages which i use in my home as well as in office. kaka 10gb is very less if u use to watch utube or other video websites. http://sms808.blogspot.com/ Muneer Ahmad PTCL Employ Amir Dude you got the answer. It take years to make a new package because there are thousands of things to look out for, that’s why if we find any short end in the package, it is because of other expenses. We should be thankful if something better is happening. Ahmad 199+499+250=948 , not 848 monthly line rent of Rs.199 not applicable on freedom pkg i think james 499 +250 for freedome package and new landline subs 499+199 for existing landline subs who order new dsl ab iss say aur sasta kia hau ga telephone aur DSL guddu yani kay total hia 749 for freedom package and 698 for existing customers with landline. Good hai and i think freedom package ke option zayada achi hay at 250 Rs. unlimited landline to ptcl landline calls AHMAR freedom package has no line rent, make yourself correct ! LALA please confirm about line rent….i think its not applicable on freedom package. hasan no it is not. http://www.facebook.com/GlamGuy Sanjay Kumar Purswani i think this gonna b the flop package people will discontinue after using number of months just because the reason they may b unaware of using excess of their limit, and it will leave them with lots frustration of the usage of some extra GB charges Kamran Why people like you, always try to find dark sides of the things. One thing is for sure that this package is very economical and we should be satisfied with it. http://www.facebook.com/MuhammadNoumanYounas Nouman Younas good offer but PTCL has two issues 1. Its not easy to get connect (especially in my area) 2. PTCL goes down for 1-2 days and ppl pay bribe to lineman for restoration Faisal I ve heard so many complaints like this.. and thank god i have no such issues in my area… Broadband and service works great but you have to put a little pressure on them… :-).. This is how things work in pakistan! http://www.facebook.com/sohail.sadiq1 Sohail Sadiq amazing package hani yeah for basic users. remember as soon as you cross the 10gb limit you’ll be charged extra. LUCKY You that YouTube is not working :D http://www.facebook.com/sohail.sadiq1 Sohail Sadiq i dont want to use phone line just want to use dsl service so freedom package cost .250 and dsl charges 500 under 10gbs total 750 ,wht are the line rate ???if 200 then the total amount will be 950 …dont makes any big difference for me Ali Bhai Sohail there is no line rent if you are paying for freedom package. Call 1236 to understand in case you are still confused. http://www.facebook.com/sohail.sadiq1 Sohail Sadiq so we simply say that 1mbps connection and unlimited nation wide calls in just rs.750 download limit is 10Gb’s ,rs 100 charge per gb exceed and if user use more than 20 gb’s the download limit goes unlimited for rs 1500 Hasan Just called 1236. If you want to avail this service as a new customer. You will be charged 1000 Rs installation fee. Freedome package is not mendatory to avail with this service but if you want to avail freedomepackage, you will not be charged line rent with it. Wifi modem will come free with new connection. So you will be charged with freedome package 499+250= ? , without freedome package 499+ line rent = ? Does this help you? Hit “LIKE ” to keep it alive, so others can see. http://www.facebook.com/sohail.sadiq1 Sohail Sadiq no bro freedom package is compulsory means without freedom package u cant avail this offer , well line rent is not charged on freedom packgae and u can call unlimited on ptcl to ptcl and vfone no. nationwide Hasan i’ve been informed by one of sales representatives of PTCL that it is not mandatory and is optional service. http://www.facebook.com/sohail.sadiq1 Sohail Sadiq check ptcl officials website and their facebook page @ed782a0a4d6414306114e1b22f0405bb:disqus http://www.facebook.com/sohail.sadiq1 Sohail Sadiq freedom package is compulsory means without freedom package u cant avail this offer , well line rent is not charged on freedom packgae and u can call unlimited on ptcl to ptcl and vfone no. nationwide so monthly chargers dsl under 10gb and unlimited calls in just rs 750 Chandio 10 gb is a very limited bw , you often go beyond that space if one goes upto 20 Gb, which is very likely for a normal user, then you can count what the total will be when every single gb will be charged with 100 pkr.I don’t think it’s a good package only to those who use phone more then internet. Hassan Zobeen I think ptcl should stop announcing new package and concentrate on the stability i have a lot of evidences which turn ptcl in a big loss Shuja Well PTCL is already focusing a lot on the quality service and it has successfully improved its service over the period of time. I have been a customer of PTCL since past few years and i can exactly relate how has the PTCL improved its quality and customer management system Chandio but not everywhere. specially not in small towns and rural areas. Chandio yes, exactly, they need more stability speciually in the places where they are copper wires change then optic fiber one for more stability then annoucing new connection and all these gimmicks. http://dubaidhow.com/ Dhow Cruise Dubai Another good package offered by PTCL Haris dost mujhe ye batao k economy 1mbps pakage k liye ptcl landline ka hona zarurui hai? q k mai ptcl use nahi karta to kya ptcl landline k baghair ye pakage chal sakta hai? aur agar mai freedom pakage na lena chahun to kya mujhe us k pese b dene parain ge ya nahi? plz reply zarur karna q k mai is pakage ko use karne mai interested hon. thankx Hassan Landline aur freedom package dono cumpulsory hain. Matlab aapko pehle ptcl ka connection lena pare ga. Us k baad hi aap freedom package aur dsl economy package le sakte hain. To agar aap 10gb se zada download nahi karte to aap k ptcl bill k monthly charges hon gay 500+250=750rs. Freedom package pe ptcl ka line rent 0 ho ga.

AyAz Samo Landline Monthly Rental: Rs. 199Economy Broadband Package: Rs. 499 Freedom Package Chagres: Rs. 250 Total: Rs. 848 tsf1903 10 gb includes downloading+browsing :( bekaar package Chandio limited downloads but browsing can be unlimited one can do in 10gb Keith check your volume by dialing 1218 or 1236 <—PTCL Use NetWorx. Pros: Install NetWorx on your all computers and check mark sync option in advanced tab in settings. Sync's usage of all computers on the same network(router) and gives same summed up usage on all computers, This software is tested all over the world and is accurate. in case your NetWorx usage and PTCL usage don't match up then obviously PTCL is lying. I mean PTCL is run by Pakistani's and there is likely more chances that your Pakistani ISP (Internet Service Provider) is lying to you…..why?……..profit…profit…profit. Also use SoftPerfect Wifi Gaurd, It tells you who is using your network(router), through wifi and directly by line. now if some unauthorized person tries to use your wifi you will know it. Q: common question, if my speed is 1mbps then why in download manager it shows 128 kbps. Ans: 1mbps = 1mega BIT per second, and 128 kbps = 128 kilo BYTE per second, , 8 BIT = 1 BYTE, note in computer case 1 kilo = 1024 and 1 mega = 1024 kilo. so 1m(bit)ps x 1024 = 1024 k(bit)ps, now divide by 8, becomes 128 k(byte)ps. Technically speaking your computer NetWorx software syncs up with other NetWorx software installed on your other computers, also with sync option enabled. so if one of your computer does not have NetWorx installed then your monthly volume reading won't be accurate. same goes for your android device with WIFI ability. i don't know if there is a NetWorx app on google play, i haven't checked.
