Rumor: PTCL to Double DSL Speed

Guest Post by Umair Aslam

A rumor had been in the air that PTCL may Double the speeds of existing customer and give Double Speed Internet connections for the same amount as their slower counterpart.

Although this looks like a rumor as it looks sanely impossible that a company may upgrade its services twice while keeping the margins and cost constant as we all remember the Go Broadband campaign from PTCL (almost 6 months back) through which PTCL gave double speeds for the same price to all its customers.

Still we are confirming this news as a sources from PTCL told us that they are very busy in upgrading the services and infrastructure to give new higher and better speeds at the same price. This network up-gradation is already being reported by several newspapers.

leading on from this everyone using 1 mb services will be getting 2 mb bandwidth and 2 mb will be upgraded to 4 mb at the same price.

We can only welcome this move and give our salutations to PTCL. This Service up-gradation will go step by step (exchange by exchange like before) and looks like its being set up for a huge launch on Eid day as an Eidi Gift for All Pakistani people.

On other side, we are sad for other broadband companies of Pakistan, as they will have to suffer if this rumor turns true.
