PTCL Celebrates 1 Million Broadband Customers

PTCL_BroadbandPakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) today announced that it has achieved one million broadband customers in the country, that is over or around 50 percent of broadband market share.

A messages by Mr. Walid Irshaid, President and CEO PTCL, published on its official website says:

With over 3 million fixed line users and 1 million Broadband customers in over 1000 cities, PTCL is reaching the country’s furthest areas where others have not.

We are fueling the Broadband revolution in Pakistan with our EVO 3G Wireless Broadband offering true mobility and fastest wireless Internet within the reach of every citizen of Pakistan.

PTCL claims that its DSL broadband services are offered in 1,000 cities countrywide while company’s wireless broadband service namely EVO is stretched to over 180 cities and Nitro in 70 cities.

PTCL has been aggressively pushing its DSL and EVO/Nitro since it started offering DSL broadband services in 2007 and EVO in 2009.

With declining number of landline users, PTCL is now heavily relying on broadband customers for its revenues, which allow the company to attain better margins thanks to higher ARPU.

According to recently reported PTA stats, Pakistan had 1.9 million broadband customers till February 2012.

  • saaday awam

    PTCL is using GOVT funds (which is actually OUR OWN money) to offer broadband in small cities and towns or offer discounts at other places. Why is PTA letting a leech take credit?
    Moreover, who will teach PTCL that quality is superior to quantity?
    Damn you PTCL, pay the remaining dues to govt of Pakistan. Then be proud of anything at all. Right now, you should actually be ashamed of being a defaulter. Sharm tum ko magar nahi aati.

  • Shahid Saleem

    What I find disappointing is that it is only 1 million. In a country with at least 60 million urban inhabitants, only 1 million?

  • I’m a PTCL customer and I am quite satisfied with its services. Congrats to PTCL on achieving this milestone.

  • F

    Congrats to whole PTCL team from a satisfied customer (since 2007) of 4MB DSL and 3.1MB EVO.
    (As per my knowledge there are approx. 0.8 Million DSL and 0.2 Million EVO customers).

  • cogurat ptcl .wait till 3g then you will be no longer on this stage.hahahaha

  • Shahzad

    ajj kal customer support bhi buhat kaarab chal raha hai PTCL ka karachi mein…

  • PTCL is the worst service provider I have ever expirence..

  • Ali

    The statement by Mr Walid Irhshaid President & CEO of PTCL is tru reflection that who cares for the Rules & Regulations in Pakistan. Here might is right. As per PTA’s orders, limited mobility is to be enforced by WLL Licensees (i.e. PTCL is providing the service under this license but he is openly claiming true mobility for EVO 3G broadband.
    Why should the “Regulator” ignore such irregularities ? If PTA is incapable of enforcing its orders, it should declare them “null & void” ?

  • Saad Tariq
