PTCL Introduces WiFi Routers for DSL Customers

Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd (PTCL) is now giving WiFi routers to its broadband customers, for wireless connectivity.

If you don’t know, WiFi routers will act exactly as your DSL modems, however, with a difference that WiFi routers can broadcast wireless signals with limited coverage – that is sufficient for in-house use.

So if you use laptop or other wireless devices, such as IP cameras etc, you can ask PTCL for WiFi routers, instead of wired routers (DSL modems).

All this comes with additional rental of Rs. 200 per month. However, this service has no extra cost for broadband customers having Smart TV.

Tariff will be

  • 1Mbps Broadband: Rs 1399
  • 2Mbps Broadband: Rs 2199
  • 4Mbos Broadband: Rs 5199

By the way, Link Dot Net is already providing WiFi routers to its customers with additional charge of Rs. 100 per month.

    Can existing customers ask to replace their using/current Modem? Or can they switch to this new offer or is it for new customers only?

    What about for those people who are using student packages?

  • Very stupid to pay 200 per month for a device that is not going to urs either and again very stupid if someone waited for PTCL to introduce this.

    Go buy your TPlink router sets for as low as 1700 Rs

    • Faheem

      already av 2 …. wots bad in getting a third one ;)

    • Agreed.

      It will be much much cheaper in the long run to pay once for your own router, rather than to give an extra 200Rs. per month.

  • Muhammad Ali

    in link dot net & ptcl…what abt student package??
    and wifi range??

  • Ahsan

    Can i access its on my wifi enable mobile n95

    • Ehtesham ul haq

      yes can access it on ur mobile device

  • The problem is for those who want to operate dsl broadband with additional wifi configuration, that is lan and wifi both operatable, for those users tp-link or linksys wifi routers is the best option as only one time payment of 2200 or 5000. and there would be no additional charges of 200/mo like ptcl

  • imi

    200 per month if u use dsl for 5 months 200×5=10000

    y dun buy tplink routers or linksys for just 2000 and 4000 respectively

    • Zeerak

      Correction: 200 x 5 = 1000

    • Baloch

      Math padho bache. bht kamzor ho math mein.

      • Kamran


        main ny suna hy ke ye sirf 24 months ke leya charge ho ga

  • ahsen

    yes, student package users can replace there modem with wi-fi routers with no charges and 200rs extra they have to pay per month so this 800rs student package now will be 1000rs per month !

    • samz

      What will be the cost of such modem in the market?

  • Saad Waseem

    Note to all above: TP-Link Wireless Router plus ADSL+ modem is 3100 for 54Mbps, and 3700 for 108Mbps.

    • admin

      Just to add, for 9/10 systems, 54 Mbps router is good. Merits mentioning, WiFi routers share speed amongst the channel…! meaning that, i there is one link, all 54 Mbps will be fully used by one system. If another system comes in, this channel will be divided and half of the bandwidth will be allocated to each computer.

  • Ahmed

    Get a used better brand router in 2000 to 3000 as otherwise you will be paying 2400 to PTCL in one year and still will never own the router.

  • Just heard that this wifi router is not available with student packages….! :(

  • Monster

    Brother aaj kal PTCL DSL k saath bohat problem chal rahi hai baar baar disconnect ho jata hai…or khud he chal parta hai

  • K. Shahzad

    They may have advertised now, but one of my friend using wifi router taken from PTCL on PTCL DSL from at least six months.

    • Kazim Ali

      wifi coverge not good.not more then 40-50 feet

  • Usman

    What’s the point of getting this if you have to pay 200/month??

    Why not get yourself a TP link WiFi router for Rs. 1800-2000. At least it will be yours forever.

    If PTCL was providing that for free, that would have been great ;)

  • umair junejp

    Not Mentioned the range coverd by router ?????????

  • Sabir

    Announcing WiFi router looks like a big joke since land line is still needed and frankly speaking how many of the home users have laptops. Moreover charging Rs. 200 rent is totally unfair since number of low cost routers are already in market and PTCL is making no exception.
    Why PTCL is not announcing independent and low cost WiFi device for home users? The EVO is too costly.
    I request PTCL that People have much awareness so please don’t play with them.

    • M.Saleem Sabir

      U R very right Landline is required AND AND AND the Landline shud be in working order if the line is frm the 1947 then how U wil run the dsl modem….I am having this problem my modem always sinks due to the old cable patch although my residential area is having fresh cables but outer side what to do NOT only this BUT due to wrong poll connection are also a fact(My home wire is coming over the ground whereas my right side home is supplied from my left side and infront school also get the cable over the groung there are many problems with the cable whereas the development made each house 2 connection on each poll on that particular road but while connecting NOBODY care for that

  • khawar

    asa i have received this ptcl adsl wireless modem today! but they said it just temporary, we will provide you conventional adsl modem which came with free installation. service.

  • The 200 per month fee is not good enough. It’s better to buy our own linksys wireless router

  • Usman Arif

    I am already using the 1MB connection with WiFi Router.

    PTCL charged me Rs.1000 in start for WiFi and thats it.

    What is its impact on this now?

  • Murad Gwaduri

    Surprise !!! WiFi is not for student package. I called on 080080800 and come to know that this service is not for student package.. So students please stay away from this device ..:)
