Rumor: PTCL may Double DSL Speed

Today again we are updating our readers with a rumor in market that PTCL is likely to double speed for its broadband users, for example

512kbps –> 1mbps
1mbps –> 2mbps
2mbps –> 4 mbps

Few people have confirmed that their speed has doubled, but other are still waiting – looks like this up gradation is going in phases, or city wise.

This news makes sense when market players are already using double speed tactics.

We were unable to get official version on this from PTCL.

    • mohsin

      Hello;
      To use ptcl dial up, the code should be open for your fone to dial countrywide calls, such as you must be able to dial calls to mobile or others city, if not, then call on 111-465-465 and ask them the code for “0” opening and closing, they will ask you number and your name, tell them and get the code for opening “0” any time and closing as well, before dialing dial up connection make sure your code is opened and no need for any card!
      this is 100% solution for your problem!

      • Muhammad Zohair Chohan

        Thats a long boring way…. when you call the helpline they give you a code like *3289# and #3289# these are used for opening STD and Closing STD… :D

        • mohsin

          Thats not boring way that is exact solution to use ptcl dial up by enabling open code!

          • Tahir Mueen

            Mohsin sb sir u have wrong information there is no need for code to be open or close when using PTCL DIAL UP i have just dialed 131777777 from my telephone & it has code but still i am able to dial the PTCL DIAL UP NUMBER sir u have wrong information. Thank you.

      • omer

        this forum is not about calling service or phone n net its about broadband punk

        • mohsin

          this is not forum, this is blog containing comment sessions, you must be atleast a little litterate to join,you “A-H”

      • Tahir Mueen

        Sir u are giving wrong information there is no need for code to be open or close for PTCL DIAL UP OR EVEN ANYOTHER DIAL UP i think u have the wrong information sir there is no concern of code in this matter pls guide properly sir thank you.

    • Tahir Mueen

      Sir pls call me immediately at _________ or ____________ & ur problem would be solved & I will charge NOMINAL AMOUNT for this if u are able to pay. Pls call or email at: __________________ & ur problem would be solved. Thank you.

  • saqib

    I too experienced the higher DSL speed. Although I thought this is because of some issue with their systems :) It is good to see higher speed but I have experienced lower reliability and consistency afterwards.

  • Muhammad Zohair Chohan

    Aqeel Open your number for STD… dial the code to make mobile phone calls… becuase 13177777 is islamabad’s number.

  • Muhammad Zohair Chohan

    Aamir here’s a correction…. the Expected packages will be
    512 —- 1
    1 —- 2
    2 —- 2.5
    and only download speeds are increasing not the uploading one.

    Dnt know its true or not because mine still same old… but i think there are some problems with the port upgradation on ptcl end …. because my friend having 512Kbps connection getting download speeds of 170-190Kb/s on downloads and speedtest.net showing his speeds at 2000+kbps…. and uploads at 500+kbps

    Lets see what happens ……..!

    • thanks for your input Zohair…! As there is no official stand on this news, so we can’t confirm anything…!

      Please let us know when you experience it yourself. Thanks

  • omer

    yes my two friends were using 512kbps and now there speed is 1mbps. if ptcl doubles my speed will become 200kb/s that will b great

  • haris

    hell ev1.. i dun hv experienced anything like that but ptcl now offering a referrel system .. with 12months free broadband n Smart Tv ..

  • omer

    ptcl help line guys are jerk they don’t even know a bit about this.

    • Mohammed Talha

      Omer you are right I have previously PTCL Broadband,, It is very badd nowadays i have Wi-Tribe it is very good

    • Tahir Mueen

      Omer sb u are absolutely right 1218 is USELESS I have recently launched a strong COMPLAINT against them with PTA as they were not issuing me COMPLAINT NUMBER on my COMPLAINT. They don’t know anything & they MISBEHAVE & so is the CALL CENTRE HIGHER MANAGEMENT. I have requested Aamir Atta sb to do something about this ISSUE but he has not paid any attention towards this ISSUE.

  • Aqeel

    thnx 4 nice comments.
    Bundle of Thnx

  • Kahn

    My speed has been upgrade too but now I keeping getting disconnected after every 10 minutes.

    • Muhammad Zohair Chohan

      Kahn Login to 192.168.1.1 put user pass as admin
      then go to wan menu and then to ur account … there is a space for keepalive change it to 0 from 10 …….. thats all :D PTCL guys never told me about this when i got that problem … Thanks to LINKdotNET their technicians are more cooperative..

      • omer

        he was not having problem before speed upgrade. the speed is changed from by the provider from back end. and no body even touched the router settings. how can keepalive value change (my keep alive is 799)

  • Muhammad Abrar Naeem

    i have 512 connection and still i am getting speed of 512 only , waiting for my connection to be upgraded tooooo !

  • omer

    i just wanna say that first they are upgrading 512kbps users to 1mbps. i found this from 4 different user of 512.

  • Hidden Eye

    • mohsin

      I think this is only fake information, only to get internet user intentions at webplaces etc! i am using 512kbps package of ptcl, and not getting exact speed, i want to say only if they can provide exact package complete speed that is enough, other things and issues have less importance! seee my poor speed at this link http://www.speedtest.net/result/423331628.png

  • omer

    mohsin that was a real crap. u r nt getting good speed doesn’t mean every body is getting bad service i am getting 120kb/s in 1mb that is what a 1mbps connection should give. and 4 ur information they are surely doubling internet speed u dumb ass.

    • mohsin

      omer, you are really a stupid person!

      • omer

        Fuck your Self

  • omer

    bite me. crap vizio. never come to a forum u don’t know any thing about…ha ha haa

  • mohsin

    http://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply_az_TopicID!98811~ForumID!23~pw.html

    • omer

      and i think this link does not confirm any thing every body is expressing there feelings about upgrade and very less of them have reported their upgrade. at this website majority of people are reporting their upgrade.

  • ahmed S

    yeah meri bhi hogai double.. i think the rumor might just be true :D

  • omer

    hello. any 1mbps user upgraded to 2mbps only 512 users are being upgraded

  • faraz

    my package 1mb bt nt yet upgraded:(

  • Imran

    People i bought myself a 512kbps package 8 months back i used to get 50-60 kbps but since a few days ive been noticing a fairly eye catching difference ive been getting 100-130 kbps download speed im thinking that there has been a malfunction in ptcl’s broadband service that they’re giving me the speed of 1mbps connection where as i had bought a 512kbps connection or maybe they have actually upgraded their service package

  • Syed Muhammad Baqir

    yep my ptcl broadband speed is also double from 512 10 1mb and I am getting 130kb/sec downloading speed

  • Atif

    Problem with me and my all other friends is that last week we all got double speed but since 11 march noon it came back again to standard 512. before it happened the dsl light on modem got off and after 2 to 3 minutes it was on again with normal speed of 512, I wanted to ask that anyone else have noticed it yet or only in my area this happened?

  • 1rfan

    I have confirmed it from a friend of mine working in PTCL triplePlay Program that yet another time PTCL is going to increase the Broadband speed for its exsisting customers to vanish new competitors in the market and by 23March yes by 23 March they will going to do it with all users currently its only limited till ISL and its near by area’s like Peshawar etc etc.

    so just hold on till 23rd March for you connection to be upgraded.

  • Raza Kashif

    I confirm that my speed is coming double since last 4 days

    I have 512k line and am downloading at 100kb+ download rate where as 512k gives 50k DL max.

    I wana confirm this with ptcl seniors… any ptcl seniors here ????

  • 1rfan

    Please do write your city and residence area u live when u confirming ur DSL speed limit, so people may have idea where this activity is at the moment.

  • omer

    dear irfan u r kinda confuse. they have no order i just know they are first upgrading 512kbps user in a random pattern.

  • Irfan

    i believe they are doing people on copper lines first.im on optic fibre living in islamabad and my dsl 512k has NOT been upgraded yet

  • omer

    yes u might be right as i myself not upgraded and I 2 have optical fibre line. and also i think my number will be upgraded at last because they are first upgrading 512kbps users.

  • Ahsan

    Hi my name is ahsan.
    i am using 512kbps ptcl on fiber optic line.
    living in islamabad.
    my all 3 friends who were on copper, had been converted to 1mbps.
    but my frieds on optic including me are not converted still.
    i calld the help line and asked about the upgrade they said we are not upgrading its a false news. y they are hiding if they are upgrading????

  • Ammar

    @Ahsan, I’m also on Fibre optic and the same is the case here. my friends using copper wire have been upgraded to 1mb speed but i’m still getting old 512kb.

  • Irfan

    what the hell???ill switch to MBL if they dont

  • Ahsan

    what is mbl??

  • Shahzad

    Yea its true..im also getting 100 kbps download…though Ptcl site suggests nothing about this upgradation but fact is i have been upgraded automatically from 512 kbps to 1 mbps…Ptcl Rocks…as their Disconnection problem in Broadband is also Highly resolved..Thumbs up PTCl for Being the True “Three Service Provider” …

  • ijlal

    it has already been doubled……

  • Waqas

    It is confirmed news now , Ptcl will double all connections until 23rd March , i upgraded from last 2 weeks . If you applying for new broadband connection then you will get already double speed then you applied so . i hope all of you get upgraded soon…

  • Irfan

    Aslam-o-Alikum,

    I m from gulshan, and i am getting 120KBps average speed…. some time the internet speed checker graph shows spikes of upto 350KBps.

    My connection is upgraded too…..

  • Irfan

    if your connection is getting low speed then doo following it surely helps,.

    1) apnay ghar ma jo ptcl ka black wire araha hai…us say aur apkay computer tak jo taaar araha hai usko dobara say naya jor lagain….. becoz wire per carbon ajata hai….ya wire loose jor laga howa hota hai….ya telephone ki dabbi k screw dhealy hongay……..

    2) ptcl ka black wire jo ghar ma araha hai… us say computer / telphone tak k wire ko alag kardain….aur direct telephone black wire per laga kar check karain k line main shore tou nahi…..distortion..

    3) appka ghar apkay area k telephone exchange say 2 – 3 km k andar hai…tou appp kay paaas achi speed aeee gi..

    4) ya ptcl k line man ko 100 Rs do aur kahao k meray computer tak sary wire check karooo…. line main shore nahi hona chahiya….

    5) app kay computer tak jo taaar araha hai wo achi qaulity ka hooo……………

    I am saying all this becoz i was previously using MAXCOM…. unkay admi nay oooper sari batooo k maday nazar rakh kar connection lagaya tha…. aur computer tak achi quality ka wire dala

    jab k ptcl k admi aya aur bekar sa connection bana kar gaya tha…..

  • omer

    ur big speech but nt compelling

  • Irfan

    can anyone on fibre optic confirm this?

    • omer

      i myself searching for any optical fibre upgrade or even a 1mbps to 2mbps upgradation.only 512kbps users are upgraded till now

    • Ammar Ahmed

      I’m also using DSL on fibre optic and after searching alot through forums i got to know that optic fibre user haven’t been upgraded yet, but copper user having 512kb upgraded to 1mb.
      I think fibre optic will also be upgraded soon, we have to wait for a while becoz PTCL also not announced yet about there upgradation, so i think they will announce after the whole upgradation will be complete.

      But one thing i have noticed, My normal downloading speed is increased now i download at average 55kb/s to 70kb/s, while 15 to 20 days back i only get average 45kb/s. and my gaming latency also improved in CS 1.6.

  • Ch. Sajid

    I am using LINK.NET in lhr, Is there any news of up gradation of DSL speed (512Kb to 1Mb) here by LINK.NET people??
    Pl share ur views.

    Sajid

  • faizan

    when ptcl is going to double the speed….. it should atleast improve existing speed….i have 1 mb…but the restricted downspeed has been a great [email protected]@

    • omer

  • Irfan

  • farhan

    hey guyz i am using 512 kbps package but it hasnt been upgraded up till yet..!! so wat should i do now ?! should i complain or still wait for 23rd march ?!

  • omer

    holy crap a friend of mine first upgraded from 512 to 1mbps now his speed is 2mbps i don’t believe this shit
    and i am still on 1mbps

    • mohsin

      if PTCL upgraded 512kbps to 2mbps, may be they want to attract 512/1mb users to be subcribe to 2mbps by showing them speed for some time!

    • mohsin

      if PTCL upgraded 512kbps to 2mbps, may be they want to attract 512/1mb users to be subscribe to 2mbps by showing them speed for some time!

      • omer

        i don’t know wat 2 say but if they upgrade 512 to 2mbps that would b great

  • omer

    let me know if any of the 512kbps user apgraded to 2mbpsplz

  • Jawad

    These days I am having very bad experience with PTCL DSL. Speed is very much bad. 512 kbps connection is even not giving 100 kbps. Almost working like a dial up connection. I tried to move towards wateen but there device was only giving 2 signals out of 5.

    • omer

      ha ha ha ha . 512 nt giving 100kb/s. theoratically 512 can give 64kb/s max but very few ptcl users gets 64kb/s normal is 50-60kb/s

  • Farooq

    I am living in G-9 Islamabad, but my 512k connection still not upgraded even my line is copper, if copper lines are upgrded then why i am waiting still for upgradation even i am getting disconnection every 5 min,this is uneccaptable for me.
    i am also using LINKdotNET same package but not getting any disconnection problem. can any body explain why PTCLis doing such kind of stupidity with us.

    • mohsin

      Youshould registered a complain to ptcl by dialing 1218, and ask them to check your telephone line that must be joint free, and they may change your wire for free! Also if you are getting disconnection, then take your modem to your exchange of ptcl and get that change!

    • Tahir Mueen

      Farooq sb aoa pls call me at _____________ or ___________ or email at: _______________ & i will inshallah solve ur problem but I will charge NOMINAL FEE for this if u are able to pay otherwise even then I will help u sir. Pls call or email for any kind of help. Thank you.

    http://www.mininova.com
    both the sites r not opening through mozilla ie and google chrome
    and i’m having very low speed from torrents !!! Please help me!!
    Regards

    • mohsin

      if you are using 512kbps dsl directly then you can use torrents freely. speed depends on seeds of torrents more seeds mean more speed,

    salam,

    if your ptcl dsl modem (SHIRO) restrats due to voltage fluctuation….

    do the following…

    1) either use a stablizer for ur dsl

    OR

    2) use the adaptor 12V DC output instead of your 9V DC.

    i was facing the same problem. and i buy a new adaptor of 12V DC. output 750mA

    it dont affect your (SHIRO) modem because modem is made up of transistor which can be operated in range of 9V to 12V normally.

    note: this is only for shiro modems provided by PTCL..

    for dial up users.
    111-462-462 is so busy.i tried every day and it took me a month to talk to them.2ndly those dogs don’t pick the phone on purpose
    the code for opening and closing 0 are:

    open: *33*the last four digits of your telephone number*02#
    close:*33*the last four digits of your telephone number*04#

    hope that helps

    • mohsin

      Hi;
      111-462-462 is for online Billing not for opening code!

      To use ptcl dial up, the code should be open for your fone to dial countrywide calls, such as you must be able to dial calls to mobile or others city, if not, then call on 111-465-465 and ask them the code for “0″ opening and closing, they will ask you number and your name, tell them and get the code for opening “0″ any time and closing as well, before dialing dial up connection make sure your code is opened and no need for any card!
      this is 100% solution for your problem!

    Doubling speed does not change behaviour read my experience with exchange staff since 2th april – 4th april.

    • FARAZ

      A.o.A!

      i dun think da problem’s only on dat torrent site..u can try different sites like btjunkie.org etc n see if it helps.
      i think PTCL blocks ports or something so the solution is PORT FORWARDING..if u dun know wat dat is den just try this link
      ” portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/ShiroCorp/DSL805E/Utorrent.htm ”

      its 4 utorrent bt it will probably work wid your torrent client aswell..

      HOPE IT WORKS =)
