Confirmed: Link Dot Net to Double DSL Speed for its Users

After PTCL, Link Dot Net is upgrading DSL connection speed for all of its customers. An inside source has confirmed us that connection speed will be doubled for every existing customer, while new connections will be charged at half prices as well.

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

For New Connections

1 mbps = Rs. 1200
2 mbps = Rs. 2000
4 mbps = Rs. 3900

LDN Help line (111-600-111) is also confirming this upgrade.

Important: Link Dot Net will take 3 weeks to upgrade all its customers – so wait for your turn to get double speed.

  • Muhammad Zahid

    it was always on the card after PTCL’s move yesterday.

  • link dot net also offering 30% discount to all colleges,universities and schools with only a valid Institution Card !!

    Gr8 Offr !

    • Ch. Sajid

      @ Haris!!!!
      R u sure they r offering to”ALL UNIVERSITIES, COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS” students as u mentioned, since when I got connection two months back this package was limited to 4~5 colleges of lahore only.
      It should be there since ptcl covers lots of universities.

      • Osman

        I think they are offering it to all students regardless of the institution…this means I am now getting a 1mb connection for like…900 rupees…THAT’S AWESOME. Long live competitive pricing!! :P

  • Muhammad Zahid

    but i still like PTCL

  • Azfar Ali

    First of all, I congratulate this blog’s maintainers & writers for bringing timely IT and telecom news to the masses. In today’s competitive business environment it is important for the consumers to have the most recent news to make proper choices.

    Secondly – this definitely does not comes as a surprise. LINkdotNET has been continuously trying to keep up with PTCL and these kind of decisions show that they are in for the long haul. My concern is only how this offer will perform in the long run – infrastructural limitations will crop up when it comes to the implementation of the 4mb packages but let’s hope the companies are prepared for it! Right now I think it is a positive step for the consumers across the country because they will be able to enjoy broadband internet as it is no longer a ‘costly’ thing.

    Regards,
    Syed Azfar Ali.

    Hi all,

    Link Dot Net is one of the top ISP in pakistan, company has all types of Links like DSL, VPN, Wimax, ISDN, Wireless, Radio, mailing Add:, Domain hosting, and also Dial up links….
    So I think Link Dot Net is better than all ISP’s and also its support is 24 hrs available engineers at support on Help line and also costomer permisis….

    So use the Link DSL or Dial up or which u probabily need it..

  • usman ghani

    AOA all,

    dear all after this news limk dot net speed just like a dial up speed on DSL connection.any link dot net customer check the sprrd on LDN DSL connection and share the experience.

    THANKS

  • Akhtar

    Now PTCL provide 1 mbps just in RS = 800 per month. its v low rate as commapare to other ISP.

  • World of Project Managment

    Thats a really great news, i think of having a LDN Connection soon. Would somebody tell me the edge of LDN over PTCL Broadband if any?

    • wahaj

      i was using ptcl dsl 512 package. my connection was not working fine for last 2 months and after complaining about 10 complaints, all i could do was just hoping for miracle. ptcl staff told me that it can be my telephone line, but when i asked for link.net, on hte same line i am getting 58kb download speed.

      my link.net never hangs.
      aztech modem they gave me is looking good in performance.
      customer support is better than ptcl.

      (but my ptcl connection was doing good for 9 months my speed was 60 kb wich came down to 52kb and eventually it started to hang up, dsl light started to blink and i was in hell for 2 months) so i switched to link.net .

      link has been good for me for last one month but link has one disadvantage and that is their upload. ptcl UL was 25kb but link max UL is 15 Kb on same package of 512.

  • Khawar

    Not only LDN offering offers to students, it also gives you a wi-fi dsl router and access point just for 100 Rs per month on rent. On the other end PTCL only gives you ZTE Box which has no wifi in it. You would have to perchase a wifi router from market which is 2700 Rs approximately.

    Any news of WorldCall changing their packages? I would love to move over to link DOT net, but DSL service is horrible on my shoddy phone line.

    Thanks for a great blog!

  • asif

    Friend,i think there is rare chances of world call to come up with double speed same link LINKdotNET and PTCL, although LDN upgradations are going very fine and services are some time give me a tough time but over all it’s good.

  • Mohsin
