    This is quite intriguing. Habib Bank is probably the only bank which has trusted it full network to PTCL. There are many other providers with better service in Pakistan but maybe because of PTCL reach. My contact at Habib bank also said PTCL has big money inside of Habib bank so it had no choice but to give PTCL it network. Quid pro quo?:))))
