PTCL to Offer WiFi Modems Without Monthly Charges, Revises 1 Mbps Tariff

PTCL_broadbandPTCL is going to offer free WiFi modem with every new DSL connection, except those who are going to buy 256Kbps and 1Mbps Student packages.

If you are an existing user without WiFi, then you will have to pay Rs. 750 to upgrade your modem to get WiFi modem – however, your current DSL charges will remain same.

Earlier WiFi Modem/routers were given to customers at a fixed but recurring monthly rental, which is now waived off against one time charge of Rs. 750.

Along with, PTCL increased the tariff for new 1 Mbps package from Rs. 1,199 per month to Rs. 1,250 per month. Old customers will keep paying the old rates, i.e. Rs. 1,199 per month.

Check below terms for more details:

1Mbps Broadband:

  • Rs. 1,250 per month
  • Provisioning of free Wi-Fi modem

In addition to increase in 1Mbps package charges for new customers only, following changes will be applicable from March 5, 2012 as part of free Wi-Fi policy.

  • Existing 1Mbps customers will continue to pay Rs. 1,199 per month
  • Wi-Fi modems will be provided to new customers of all packages excluding 256Kbps and 1Mbps Student package, and there will be no monthly recurring charges.
  • All existing subscribers irrespective of their packages will be charged Rs. 750 as modem up-gradation charges, and their package charges will remain as per policy
  • Existing Wi-Fi customers will continue to pay as per existing policy
  • Bundled packages (Double Up and Double Impact etc.) and triple-play services will be provided free of cost Wi-Fi modem upon installation and there will be no monthly recurring charges

Following are monthly broadband tariff for PTCL DSL customers:

  • 1Mbps at Rs 1,250
  • 2Mbps at Rs 1,499
  • 4Mbps at Rs 1,999
  • 6Mbps at Rs 4,999
  • 8Mbps at Rs 6,999
  • 10Mbps at Rs 9,999

Rs. 5,000 per month will be charged for greater than 300 GBs downloads. This is applicable on 1 Mbps to 8 Mbps DSL Connections.

PTCL claims to have acquired 95 percent of the DSL market share with increase of 17 percent subscribers’ base in the first half of the current financial year 2011-12. PTCL says that it is offering DSL services in over 1,000 town/cities across Pakistan.

On a side note, PTCL is hard trying to push its DSL sales. For the purpose, company is offering an incentive of Rs. 300 to be given to any employee who refers a DSL broadband order, after successful deployment of the connection and payment of the first bill.

  • Student Package rate is also increased from 930 PKR to 950 PKR.
    These cheapo people…

  • Beside ptcl, can you write one post about linkdotnet? about their tarrif / wifi modems / service etc??

  • salam
    hey admin i am using the ptcl student bundle package that is for rs.999
    will i also get a free wifi router as my student bundle package is a bundle package
    plz plz plz plz answer me

  • wi-fi for 750 rupee? is it cheap ??
    can anybody tell what market price of wi fi modem that PTCL is offering

  • By the way What was the rental for wifi before???

    Its a good step by PTCL but they should consider revising their packages as well.

    In my opinion:

    1Mbps at Rs 1,150
    2Mbps at Rs 1,499
    4Mbps at Rs 1,999
    6Mbps at Rs 3,999
    8Mbps at Rs 4,999
    10Mbps at Rs 6,999

    and Admin, Recently (a weak ago) there was a promotion launched by PTCL for its Evo customers (PTCL EVO WIN BACK OFFER) but you have`nt posted any article about that. I was waiting for that in PP.

  • I am using PTCL modem with Linkdotnet DSL and I pay 735Rs per month including all taxes and unlimited downloads on 1MB

    Aur PTCL DSL ke terha ayay roz service ka masla bhi nahi hota.

  • I already got it for free when I applied for a connection 2 years ago LMFAO! They have total noobs here in their Hafizabad exchange, they have no idea XD

  • Any 1 tell me that kia ham WiFi modem 256kb package par use kar sakte hain? Or linkdotnet k connection charges or tariff bh share karen please detail k sath n ptcl k new line connection k charges kia hain

    • dear if u r using 256kbps package will u tell about its speed,streeaminmg and transfer rate .waiting

  • 300 GB limit. breach this limit and u pay Rs. 5000 more for that month. it’s quite impossible to reach 300 GB on 1 Mbps, but heavy downloaders on 4-8 Mb/s connection should be very careful to avoid getting a shock on the phone bill!

  • No 50 GB limit was before the new policy (that is 300 GBs/month for 1,2&4 Mbps resp.). So the limit for 4Mbps DSL is 300 GB and if you consume more than a MB of it than ready to pay Rs / 5000 “only“.

  • Admin please post an up to date comparison of Linkdotnet with PTCL as many of us have found PTCL is going poor day by day.

    • Valid point yaar, Linkdonet haven’t set any CAP, We should also got to know about this, I doubt, Aamir Atta bhai is paid by PTCL for not rising the Linkdotnet… lets see, If he will post the comparison or not.

  • i have got my PTCL bill and it’s increased to 1219rs per month. i am using simple router. there service is going cheap day by day. i going to install LinkDOT net soon.

  • Just confirmed from PTCL that they are providing wi-fi modem whose maximum range is just 30 meter ! is it good ?

  • just by yourvown wifi router instead of renting by ptcl it would cost around 2000-2050 and device would be permanently yours…..

  • Guys, I think Link.NET is much cheaper then PTCL DSL and besides it also offers good customer services. I have been using Link.NET 1 Mbps package for around 1.5 years and it is quite OK. Currently I pay only 735 Rs. for 1 Mbps package. Beside, if I require DSL modem then I have to pay 150 Rs. extra or I can pay 250 Rs. for WiFi Modem.

    So in short,
    > 1 Mbps DSL package (without any modem) ….. 735 Rs. per month
    > 1 Mbps DSL package (with non-WiFi DSL modem) ….. 835 Rs. per month
    > 1 Mbps DSL package (with WiFi DSL modem) ….. 985 Rs. per month

    • only ptcl wifi device k charges or monthly pkg kitna hy my nay wifi mobile pay use krna hy.

  • Why this unjustification with student package holder. They are treated as rabbish and just have no status.
