PTCL Hits 100K Broadband Customers

ptcl_dslThough an AD published in Daily Express today, PTCL has claimed crossing 100K broadband customers in 119 cities of Pakistan. We know that PTCL improved many folds in broadband internet services both in terms of reach and value.

Print advertisement further says that customers can now avail plenty of free services as well, as part of their landline phone connection, which includes

  • Personal Email ID
  • Cricket Matches
  • Gaming
  • Movies
  • PTV dramas
  • Online Learning
  • Music
  • SMART TV and much more

PTCL is looking forward to cross more than double of this figure by the end of June this year, although the services currently offered do not qualify for the high standards a customer normally look for. Still I take this low ARPU and high investment service as faster than anticipated and much is on its way to surface the industry in the coming days.

  • can you please cover the benchmarking of Broadband providers.
    i want to switch my current provider but need some feedback.

    • @DuFFeR, for sure i will do that…!

      But on a short note, Micronet is best option that i would refer.

    Hi qudoos,
    i am using LINKdotNET in Rawalpindi and getting good Speed although i have also Micronet Connection. i think both are best internet giver’s.

    PTCL started broadband in many cities at 31st december and it is also available in our all neighbouring cities but i dont know why its not available in my city: Khairpur Tamewali, Dist Bahawalpur.

    I also inquired from my city PTCl Exchange and they are telling that Broadband equipments are installed and ready to use but they dont know when ptcl will start broadband in our city.

    Wil anyone know when ptcl is announcing its second phase of broadband as i hope it will be started in second phase or can anyone tell me from where to inquire that when broadband will be available here in Khairpur Tamewali, Dist Bahawalpur ?
