8mbps pb PTCL Launches 8Mbps DSL Package for Rs. 2,999 Per Month

PTCL today announced the availability of its new high-speed DSL broadband package for its customers.

According to PTCL website, company is offering its customers to avail 8Mbps DSL package against Rs. 2,999 monthly rental with unlimited download, i.e. virtually no caps at all.

PTCL said that this offer can be availed by any new or existing PTCL customers.

It maybe recalled that usual tariff for 8Mbps DSL package is Rs. 7,000 with unlimited downloads.

PTCL said that a data limit of 100 GBs per month will be applied from January 1st, 2015, till then customers can enjoy unlimited downloads/uploads with this 8Mbps DSL plan.

From January 1st, 2015 – after consuming the data limit of 100 GBs – customers will be charged Rs. 100 for each GB. However, there would be a billing cap of Rs. 7,000 per month for 8Mbps package after which there will be no limit on downloads.

It merits mentioning here that 8Mbps DSL package is recommended for locations where PTCL’s Fibre is running till the end-home, just because copper media may not support such high-speed internet.

Here are the Terms again:

  • 8Mbps Capped package @ Rs. 2,999 per month.
  • Unlimited downloads as a special promotion till 31st Dec 2014.
  • 100-GB download limit effective from 1st Jan 2015
  • Additional GBs at Rs. 100 per GB.
  • Billing Cap at Rs. 7,000 per month for 8Mbps Capped Package.

          Open your router admin panel and see if down stream is 4000+ then you have fibre. Because, on copper they werent able to go above 2 Mbps

          • Bilal

            is it necessary for ptcl smart tv to have a fiber connection rather than copper??

            • Ali Asghar

              Yes, because it transfers data to Set Top Box at ultra high speeds, this is why you’re able to watch HD quality live Channels, and such transfer rate is only possible through fiber, I’ll check in my Android device to get an idea about it.

              • hasan

                wrong, smart tv can work on copper without any issue.

            Jo bhi hai yaar, moqay par yeh offer ayi hai, kal raat or aaj subha isi par baat karahay thay, now I wish A user Mohammed Aamir will subscribe to this package and see the download speeds, which will be 1 MB/s :D

            • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

              my line still can’t hold more than 4mb connection :(

          • Ahmed Habib

            Yes I done this too and now if I have a minimal problem they call me theirself. :D

      • Arslan Ali Qureshi

        I get 450 on 4m b

        • Ali Asghar

          You should get 500 KB/s Transfer rates in 4 Mbps bandwith, this is what we’re missing, we pay full for 4 Mbps, so why speeds are lower? you can also pay them 10% less because you’re getting 10% lesser speeds :p lol

          • eyescreaman

            Or you can be reasonable and accept the industry accepted “real world” speeds with line degradation.

          • Shahid Saleem

            I think you should read about packet overhead. In any transmission medium (even fixed line ethernet) you have to deal with packet overhead, and you will never get full speed.

            In DSL’s case you use PPP over Ethernet protocol, which means you lose some bandwidth to PPP packet format (headers, checksum, etc). And then there is framing overhead.

    • Naveed

      I am using 4MB connection on which I get 500Kb/s download speed with 90-100Kb/s upload speed ..

      • Guest

        I guess you have fiber line then
        as they will not tell us that we have fiber lines or not
        i get the same speed even on 1mb

        • Zulqarnain Nizamani

          U shd change ur pkj to 1mb student pkj

          • JahanZaib Yousaf

            I am more Happy With Wingle I am getting almost 1200 k bytes / s speed

            But they have now implemented extra Caps on that

                • Zulqarnain Nizamani

          I think fiber optic has nothing to do with speed its up to package

          • Naveed

            I was getting the same speed when I was on Copper line but I have recently updated my line to fiber .. :)

            • JahanZaib Yousaf

              PeeTcl will never transfer my number to Fiber as they says you have to apply for a new number in order to get a fiber line.
              Did u get a new number

              • Naveed

                Yes we changed our number in order to transfer it to fiber.. so that is fine as we all have cell phones , we hardly use home phone :)

            • Fakhre Alam

              u updated or PTCL did?

              • Naveed

                I told them to do so :P

          • Fakhre Alam

            super brains :-D

      • SUPER BRAINS

        I also get the same speed on copper line

      • Ææmįr Mōhâmmåd

        • Naveed

          Use IDM :)

    • JahanZaib Yousaf

      PeeTcl will never transfer my number to Fiber as they says you have to apply for a new number in order to get a fiber line

    • Salman Abbas

      Then get your line checked. I am getting 2 MBytes/s with PTCL 16 Mbps on copper.

    • Suleman Hasib

      Get your line Condition Checked. I have 4 Mbps and I can attain upto 495 KB/S in G-11 Islamabad on Torrents.

      and my connection is on copper, thought these days they are shifting to fibre so mostly it keeps on disconnecting due to high attenuation :(

  • http://www.stuffwrap.com/ Ali Shaheer Ejaz

    I am getting 350 kbps and I am happy with PTCL.

    • Zulqarnain Nizamani

      main bhi exchange se same baat sun k aya hoon k 4mb bhi bari mushkil se chalta h , 8mb to kabhi nhn chalega

  • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

    I live in a good area or you can say a posh area near Islamabad. I have once 4mb connection and sometime the noise margin decrease to 5,6 and attenuation to nearly 30. My line cannot hold 4mb and they offer 8mb…lol

    • Mustafa

      They also offer 16 mbps max on dsl and 50 mbps on vdsl .

      • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

        yeah i know and further they offer 100mb @ Blue area maybe next year because they tested 100 mb in that area near Centaurus mall

        • Mustafa

          But price is the problem . :(

          • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

            not price, service quality is the problem

        • Guest

          The fiber, which is using PTCL for this purpose, is that type where total internet reflection occur?

          • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

            they are using cable network i guess for 100mb only in this small area. I dont think they can give 100mb min with optical fibre

            • Arsalan

              I was waiting for propakistani’s post concerning PTCL’s FUP. Good Job Aamir bhai!

              Anyways, I also have azadi package. I use 85+ GB always, as I finish my 75 GB downloads in less than 20 days, and as I have postpaid connection, I am never charged more but speed is downgraded to 256kbps, still am able to D/L as much as I want.. but after this shit of 30GB, i’m throwing this device in the trash can and moving on to Qubee (2mbps 70GB FUP Rs.1.500/m) or Wateen (2mbps TRULY UNLIMITED FUP Rs. 2,999/m) … PTCL SUCKS BIG TIME!! i’m tired of evo disconnections and purchasing new antenna cables every few weeks (as I have to keep moving evo from work place to home and vice versa hence the CRC9 cable gets loose and eventually is destroyed) now I can hopefully enjoy with Qubee or Wateen and Telenor 3G on my mobile.. RIP PTCL. Excellent move to reduce FUP after the launch of 3G, so everyone gets rid of you and moves on to another connection.. I heard Qubee reduced their prices after 3G was launched, and retarded PTCL reduced the FUP. and these mentally unstable people also have introduced a policy of charging Rs. 150/GB on ALL CONNECTIONS (prepaid/postpaid) and no more speed reductions.. Retards.. Wish we had another operator for providing landline/broadband and wireless dongles..

              • Mudassar

                Don’t throw it to trash :D post it to me :)

  • Ahmad

    Copper cable also supports 8Mbps. If your SNR is greater than 30dB (ideal) for 4Mbps connection, you can easily switch to 8Mbps without any worries. I am saying this because I have used SCO (AJK) 8Mbps on my copper line and it worked flawlessly…

    • mohsinraja

      snr: 21downstream and 28downstream, mein kon sa package use kr skta ho

    • Naghmash Ali

      My SNR Margin is 27.6 and receiving 510KBps on my 4Mb Connection. Can i get this offer.

  • viper

    PTCL offers 300GB download on its 4 Mbps package… why only 100 GB on 8 MB?

    • Mubasher Lucman

      Marketing

    • AK Mustehsan

      It’s their attempt to prevent piracy, because most people use higher-speed connection to download unauthorized stuff from the internet and sell it, and downloading also slows down their connection, there is also the reason why Ufone’s 3G network is speed capped, unlike other carriers.

      100 GB is too less anyway.

  • Waqar

    !~~~~~~!!! Attention Please !!!~~~~~!

    For those who dont know, by fiber they didnt meant fiber to the home (GPON / FTTH). They mean ONU that is copper wire which is backed by fiber connection.

    BTW lahore is under going full upgradation so that everyone will get better speed and stability

    • Shahid Saleem

      As long as my copper line number doesn’t change, i’ll be happy with the upgrade.

  • Naghmash Ali

    My SNR Margin is 27.6 and receiving 510KBps on my 4Mb Connection. Can i get this offer. I don’t know if my exchange has optic fiber.

    will they reduce data cap on all the dsl 2mb,4mb,ect packages from 300gb to 100gb

    • Muhammad Musa Raza

      looks like it. like they did on all evo services to 30 GB, its so sad really.

  • Rafay

    What abt after 31st dec 2014.
    Will the user be able to revert back to a lower bandwidth package like 4mb or stuck with this 8mb package.

    its more like 6.7Mbps

  • Usman Ahmed

  • http://zohaibjahan.blogspot.com Zohaib Jahan

    good package but 100 GB is not enough

  • PQ

    “Installation Charges Rs. 1,500″

    do this also applies on people who already have Internet connection and want to upgrade to this 8 Mbps package?

    • Usman Ahmed

      yes
      we have to pay it. And if we dont like the speed (which is pathetic currently), ptcl would have earned 1500 when we downgrade.

  • Abdullah Aslam

    Whats a SmartSpot?

  • dawood

    Looks like the next evolution of internet in Pakistan is here has PTCL has reduced
    the price of their 8 Mbps packages to Rs. 2,999/month. This, without a doubt,
    shows how PTCL understands the need to high speed internet in our country and
    wants us to be on a level field with the rest of the world. I expect them to
    get an overwhelming positive response from all their customers.

    • bash

      u are absolutely spot on mate this is really a nice offer from ptcl there are thousands if not millions of ptcl users who are fed up with 4MB and want to download at higher speed but 7000 was too much for that. now they have lowered the price i believe a lot of customers will upgrade their 4MB package after all its 800 more than what we are paying now good effort ptcl
      and as for all the whiners out there with their shitty msgs above learn to appreciate something if u have a problem that doesnt mean the whole country is suffering from it ptcl has the control over broadband and it will have it after 10 years no matter how many companies come and go its only ggod for us the consumers. i mean nayatel burq with their wifi net recent 3g launch and ptcl coming with their own chaarji service and now this offer its all for us . just understand it first then talk about it. i only see progress in this offer nothing more nothing less and its unlimited for 31st decmbr what else one needs man just enjoy it and after 1st jan be a little conservative on your porn collection!!

  • http://www.letsfooty.com/ LetsFooty

    hehehehe another joke from ptcl :D in bc ka 4mb thek chalta nai 8mb chale ga :p

  • Rahim

    ptcl is down its upload for 4mb i am facing the prb 512kbps to max 650kbps

  • Usman Ahmed

    4Mb was perfect – but ever since i upgraded, too many disconnections. Rarely goes above 4Mb and when it does, it resets itself and comes down to less than 4Mb.

  • MD

    As soon as I saw this offer i called PTCL help line at 10pm. checked my DSL at morning 10am, it was upgraded to 8Mb from 4Mb :D. I have two dsl now. 4Mb and 8Mb. Combined them both using Dispatch Pro and got this Download Speed ;)

    90 percent of PTCL infrastructure hardly supports speeds upto 2mpbs with only 25 percent being able to handle 4mbps. PTCL has failed to acquire what it wanted to when it jumped into consumer internet service. Only a few handful of fiber areas support this 8mbps and even those areas have a lot of complaints.

    anyone using 8mb connection here? what is the status of online streaming? with multiple devices attached ? What the max download speed? is it really worth an upgrade over 4mbps?
