For bill payment there are two options:
Package 1: For PTCL Landline customers they can pay their monthly service charges Rs.2000 through PTCL landline number.
Package 2: For all other customers who don’t have a PTCL landline: they will have to pay Rs.2000 in advance of each month at PTCL One Stop Shops and Customer Service Centers.
The great thing is that there is NO download limit unlike Wateen, Wi-tribe & Mobilink Infinity. The service has got good feedback, and its matter of fact that PTCL has take more than enough time for the commercial launch.
The results of the EVDO service are great in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad; however users have faced issues in Rawalpindi because of the terrain (ups & downs). However wherever it works the internet speed is unmatched. Download speed is at average of 1.1 mbps which is awesome. Youtube streams in real time there is no buffer or delay. Upload is also quite fast.
It merits mentioning here that service is already launched but people had been waiting for commercial launch. The new USB device is sleek, stylish and is absolutely cool. It looks very high tech. Honestly Evo feels like the future if you have it plugged it in your laptop and streaming a video on Youtube.
