Through very reliable sources, we have come to know that PTCL is ready to launch new tariff for its land-line users. We expect PTCL to introduce three packages for consumers to opt from. As per our source, these packages are with following details
- Unlimited local and nationwide calls: Fixed line rent of Rs. 699 per month
- 3000 minutes for local and nationwide calls: Fixed line rent Rs. 499 per month (additional calls will be charged as normal tariff)
- We were unable to get details of third package
Apparently, these are great offerings – women of Pakistan will love these packages. I see most of consumers opting for package 2; however corporate and high end users will not be hesitant to select package 1.
Through these packages, PTCL has tried to overcome limitations of Pakistan Package, as with Pakistan Package, PTCL customers could make free nationwide calls, but local calls were charged at Rs. 2 per pulse.
Furthermore, I see PTCL more focusing on number of customers, as these packages will bring PTCL tons of new customers but I am afraid they may suffer with ARPU.
Note: These packages are not official yet, and may not happen at all – there are also chances that these packages may come with little alterations. However, we will update you as soon as anything will go official.
