    I am living in Main Bahawalpur city but still PTCL is unable to provide DSL service in my area. Now they are just showing off that they have reached 600000 customers. They just are taking advantage of monoply. Because they are the only DSL provider. But their service quality is worse than anyone else.

    • Tahir Mueen

      sir it is just because of PTCL monopoly that they are saying this otherwise the service is not good & especially complaints are not attended. PTCL should improve on that & if they do that then it would be very good.

    “PTCL’s SEVP Commercial Mr. Naveed Saeed says that PTCL has always been the first to introduce and provide the benefits of latest technologies to the customers.”

    YEAH RIGHT!… Micronet, Dancom, LDN, Maxcom, WOL and Cyber.net were all providing DSL WAY before PTCL. PTCL came in and drove them out of business using such tactics as charging them huge amounts for interexchange bandwidth, intercity bandwidth and internet bandwidth and also play hell with these operators who co-located their DSLAM systems in their exchanges. They also didn’t allow these operators to provide DSL on the new ONUs (built with the taxes of the people of Pakistan) and started to shift customer lines to it so that nobody could comission DSL lines on it…

    In the end the companies which had a head start either died or were forced to sell to them. Like Maxcom.

    During this whole episode, the PTA just stood by watching… watching Etisalat PTCL destroy Pakistani operators.

    Third class Service hai Ptcl Dsl ki sargodha mein.

    • Tahir Mueen

  • Sohail

    Same here in rawalpindi.
    Pathetic service !!! cant have more than 1mb even in main city like rawalpindi, poor coverage !

    • Same issue is with majority of cities, They are just targeting on quantity, not quality.

  • Wow .. I am one of them !! .. :)

  • F

    A proud customer of PTCL DSL since Dec-2007 (currently using 4MB w/o any problems)

  • Mirza

    PTCL is bunch of ____ senior management comprising of PTCL/ ETISALAT dacoits ( their native profession. What they are claiming is totally wrong. How DSL will work when they can not rectify fault on normal land line.

    Let Mazhar, Nasrullah, Nematullah, Naveed saeed and other ____ from PTCL, and Walid Irshaid with Arab ____ from ETISALAT loot PTCL , make money and run away.

    PTCL DSL + EVO today provides broadband services to more than 750,00 subscribers making it the largest service provider in Pakistan.

    Customer wait and depend on PTCL while wimax and others only operate in niche areas with packages that are capped and priced lower than PTCL’s.

    PTCL’s quality o service can be bad somewhere and that is one of the reasons why wimax operators are getting some business but the question is how will they sustain business as these are all in losses.

    The day PTCL starts offering lower denomination packages the space for wimax operators will be squeazed further and that is where PTA and govt need to take a proactive role.

    Thank you PTCL to let other operators perform and give better services in terms of customer care

  • PTCL SERVICE IS VERY GOOD I ALREADY USE PTCL BROADBAND IN KARACHI.

    Hundreds and Thousands of people bought PTCL’s executive package this year which is Wingle 9.3 Unlimited (70GB) @ Rs. 1250/ per month. PTCL charged lump sum annual payment in advance because this is what the deal is. Means if we pay annual payment in advance we will get Unlimited (70GB) for Rs. 1250/- per month. They charged annual advance and then within few months they changed their SO-CALLED POLICY and limited the users to just 30GB which is their regular package. When we demand to refund the balance of money back they simply ignore it and tell us that they can not do any thing because the policy is made by PTA. ehhh is PTA God? Does it have exclusive rights to rip off people ?

    What does that mean ? Should we forget about our hard earn money ?

    Is there anyone to stop PTCL/PTA from this Ghunda Gardi ?

    Don’t you all remember that they announced and run massive advertising campaigns in 2013 for EID Package which was “Life Time package for Rs. 1250/- per month”? Where is that package now ? Since this innocent company changed their POLICY, the users should forget their money. Waaaaahhhhhh !!!!

    Please inform others. Never believe PTCL and their fake packages and announcements. THEY CAN CHANGE THEIR GAWD DAMN POLICY OVERNIGHT without caring how much end users suffer or lose.

    The best of all, there is no Ministry or regulator to stop them. Ander say sub milay howay hain.
