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.

Currently PTCL Chaar Ji is available in following four cities:
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:

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.
