President PTCL Selected as Vice Chairman SAMENA

Walid_Irshaid1SAMENA Telecommunications Council has elected CEO and President Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd (PTCL), Mr Walid Irshaid, as the new vice chairman of its board of directors.

Mr Irshaid succeeds Mr Riad Bahsoun of Telecommunications Information Technology (TIT). SAMENA board of directors now comprises of 11 major regional operators, including, Batelco Group, Omantel Group, Saudi Telecom Group, Etisalat Group, Orange-Jordan Telecom Group, Qtel Group, Turk Telekom Group, PTCL, Viva Kuwait, and Bravo.

“Mr Walid Irshaid’s election to the board adds to the leadership support that Sheikh Mohamed bin Isa Al Khalifa, Group CEO of Batelco Group, is now extending to SAMENA as its chairman,” said Chief Executive and Executive Managing Director SAMENA, Tom Wilson. “SAMENA is making strides on multiple fronts, of interest to our operator membership, and Mr Irshaid’s leadership and experience in the regional ICT are precisely what SAMENA’s membership will gain from.”

“It is a great honour for me to have been entrusted with this esteemed position,” said CEO and President PTCL, Mr Irshaid. “This new honour for PTCL actually reflects SAMENA’s recognition of our company’s frontline role in fostering and leading the telecommunications revolution in Asia.”

In his capacity as vice chairman of SAMENA, Mr Irshaid will aid SAMENA’s relationship-building efforts with policy circles in the SAMENA region.

“As SAMENA Vice Chairman, I envision this as a great opportunity for PTCL to expand its outreach with both regional and global players thus, putting Pakistan firmly on the international map as a global telecom market leader,” said Mr Irshaid.

An international information and communications technology (ICT) expert, Mr Irshaid has more than 30 years of professional experience in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia regions. Throughout his career, he has led a multitude of high-value telecom projects in several markets. His previous international stints include Emirates Telecom (Etisalat), Datanet (Lebanon), Paltel (Palestine), and FLAG (Middle East and North Africa).

    Subject: Charging PTCL undue bills
    Dear Sir,
    It is very sad to say that the when PTCL privitized its working efficiency is found totally failed. When PTCL did not privitized only line mens use to take 100 rupees a month extra and PTCL service was never be fail what is happening now a days.
    I have a connection of DSL in home My whole childrens study has mess up due to in one month only 7 to 8 days DSL work and your staff send us the complete bill of whole month..Now from the last three months internet work for 23 days on different dates.It is requested that you hand over PTCL back to the govermet or change your staff.Currently DSL service is also out of order from last 20 days.

    Your sincerely,

    New connection was requested on fiber optic that PTCL promised to provide because optic figer line is available in my area but in fact connection was given on coper wire. Now when i know that PTCL lied to me and they accept that it was their mistake , they are not chaning my DSL to fiber optic.

    The second thing, when it was time to install new setup, PTCL was calling me from Islamabaad, Karachi and many calls was from the phone line man and the DSL installer but now they are telling me to go to multan road exchange with written application in my hand and get my DSL to fiber optic because there is no way they can do it on phone.

    They say they cannot change or shift my DSL connection on fiber line. Line man and the DSL installer were not ready to accept that they gave me connection on coper wire. But now they know that i am not a person who can quit easily so they accept their mistake.

    I want my DSL connection on fiber optic and if this cannot be done on phone then i will not pay bill and i will disconnect PTCL phone and DSL before end of this month.

    Also i want to let you know that i am not sheep user like many many others who have no idea how to deal with PTCL. I can reach millions of users on Internet to explain what fraud PTCL do to rip off simple users. Soon PTCL will be getting a lot of calls on the same issue from users.

    There is alot more to talk on this issue.

    Subject: Forged PTCL Wifi Devices.

    Dear Sir,

    The subject cited above its been an utter grief for me that
    I have purchased the “PTCL Wifi Wingle” device from the people who proclaimed
    that they are PTCL personnel , they made several calls on my mobile and insist
    to purchase the device due to attractive promotional reasons.

    However due to continous calls I got swindle and victimized,
    While I approached to the PTCL headoffice with the device but unfortunately I
    come to know that this device is totally illegal and cannot registered on my
    name because the MDN no “922134209408”
    is already registered to the other name.

    As a matter of fact this issue is quite serious due to
    unconventional security threats and terrorism, Sir I would like to make a request
    to resolve it on a priority basis so in future no one get “Cheated and Mugged” and devices sold on the streets legally.

    The information of the so called PTCL salespersons is
    mention below:

    1-
    Faraz
    03152251039

    2-
    Daniyal
    03222027767

    Favor in this regard would be appreciated immensely.

    Kind Regards.

    Hello,

    One week before I received an call from PTCL agent convincing me to buy PTCL Broad band package and once I confirmed her within an hour PTCL Lineman installed the package. After that am not able to connect the PTCL internet for a minute and I daily calling to your service centre and they always told me that they will send the line man in few hours but no line man had ever visited and solve the issue. Today I called to your service centre to disconnect my Internet connection so they threatened me that internet charges shall be include in your coming bill. Am really dissapointed that how your agents are treating their customers and running the corporate name this way.  I even called to your headoffice they register the complain and told me that within 24 hours they will resolve the issue. It has now been 5 days passed and didn’t got any response from you. Really dissapointed with PTCL.
