PTCL char ji PTCL Launches 36Mbps Chaar Ji EVO Service

Today, technology is evolving at breakneck speeds, and this effect is visible everywhere. As the technology evolves, so does the needs of consumers, who are getting data hungrier day-by-day.

To bridge this gap, Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) has taken the lead by introducing the next generation wireless broadband “EVO CharJi” offering speeds upto 36 mbps.

Little late than we originally expected, PTCL’s Chaar Ji EVO is a Dongle supported product that will enable your devices with internet speed up to 36Mbps in Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

Beyond any doubt, the coverage areas are going to increase with time.

With the introduction of next generation wireless broadband, PTCL has brought Pakistan amongst the few countries where such high-speed broadband connectivity is available.

Early testers confirmed ProPakistani that they were able to browse internet and download files from internet at around 20-25Mbps, but that was when there was no or minimal load on the network.

PTCL is expecting its Chaar Ji to offer wireless broadband internet to end-users at around 10-20Mbps with usual load on the network.

According to PTCL, Chaar Ji devices come with backward compatibility, meaning that areas where Chaar Ji coverage isn’t available your device will seamlessly transition to Rev.A and Rev.B networks to offer 9.3 Mbps speeds or otherwise to 3.1 Mbps speeds.

PTCL’s Chaar Ji will support up to 10 Simultaneous connections on MiFi Clouds.

Chaar Ji Coverage

Currently PTCL Chaar Ji is available in following four cities:

  • Islamabad
  • Rawalpindi
  • Lahore
  • Karachi

Fall-back Networks:

As mentioned above, Chaar Ji devices come with backward compatibility. In areas where ChaarJi service isn’t available, customers can Connect to EVDO Rev A speeds of up to 3.1 Mbps with EVO Rev A network in 250+ cities nationwide.

Chaar Ji Tariffs:

PTCL is saying that cost of Chaar Ji device is Rs. 3,000, however, there are some plans in which you can pay in lump sum to get discount on monthly rental.

Monthly rental for 50 GB package per month is Rs. 3,500. Keep reading to know further details:

PTCL is offering both prepay and postpay bundles, while 10 GB Bucket for Rs. 500 will be accessible upon volume exhaustion on both prepay & postpay packages.

Upon expiry of bundles, customer will have the options to select one of the two packages as mentioned.

Volume limit — or as PTCL is calling it fair usage policy — is apparently the deal breaker, or at least something that potential Chaar Ji users wouldn’t like much. Clearly this service isn’t for Pirate Torrent users.

Business Rules:

  • Offer is valid on both prepay and postpay bundles.
  • 10 Gb Bucket for Rs. 500 available upon volume exhaustion on both prepay & postpay.
  • Maximum of 2 Postpay bucket charges billed in monthly invoice per month.

    Well PTCL cannot offer 2MB on 9.1MB Wingle, how can you believe that their new device will work at faster speed.

    PTCL must forced to make agreement of providing minimum bandwidth rate, else they should not charge the customer or adjust the deficit next month.

    Agree with your first part, disagree with the second one. Most paki’s are quite aware of the difference between Mb and MB. 36 Mb = 4.5MB/sec actual speed, and 36 MB = 36MB/sec actual download speed. Everywhere in the world speeds are written in bits (small ”b”), there’s no place in the world which sells broadband in B (bytes) 1 Byte = 8 bits. That’s the formula. Yes, I agree with a broadband of 3 – 4MB/sec (which can also be said 24-36Mb/sec) the minimum limit should be like 500GB/month.

    Lol. In most places of the world, 3G/4G is used by ordinary people. Fiber and CIR are used by upper class people. In Pakistan soon there will be a day when roti would not be available for ordinary people due to it’s price. The only issue is inflation and the minimum wages for ordinary people.
