  • Beaten By Love

    limited offer, after one month they charge extra, there are hidden word by PTCL

  • Adeel

    >> This promotional package will expire on 30th Sep-2012 and standard 4 Mbps Tariff (Rs. 1,999 per month) will apply after that.

    So they will charge standard tariff after September 30th anyway.

  • good offer

  • I am facing lot of problems in my 2Mbps so I am not going to upgrade. Thanks PTCL

  • Arslan

    Good offer going to Upgrade my connection :)

  • Those Who Are Upgarding There Package Must Check How Much Bandwidth they use :P promotion k chakar main 5000rs Extra Na Dainy Par Jaye :D

    • Shahid Saleem

      300 GB is a lot for a normal household.

  • yasir

    Two months 4 mb at price of 2mb GREAT do rember to have it back to 2mb before 30th sept to avoid extra charges

  • Ali

    “PTCL Help Line said that downgrading from 4 Mbps to 2 Mbps will be free”

    If 1 mbps upgrade into 4mbps than what about its downgrade. can it possible to downgrade to 1 mbps again and what will be the charges?

    • admin

      PTCL helpline said there are no charges for downgrading to 2 MB or 1 MB package. You can call 1236 and confirm this before upgrading your account.

  • peter norton

    what about those who are using 1mbps student package ? Same offer for them??

    • Zurain

      there is nothing left in this country for students accept for couple of rupee discount on public transport and 1mbps pathetic broadband :P

  • Sk

    @ Beaten .. There is no hidden charges as they have clearly mentioned “This promotional package will expire on 30th Sep-2012 and standard 4 Mbps Tariff (Rs. 1,999 per month) will apply after that.

    Customers can downgrade their package before September 30th, to avoid extra charges.”

    @ ET Video .. 5000 would only be charged if customer download more then 300gb which is quite high threshold for a home user. This condition also exist in their normal package.

    -SK-

  • Sk

    @ Peter .. U can upgrade your package from 1MB student package to 4mb, but keep in mind that you will be charged as per 2mb tariff i.e Rs 1,499/- per month

    It is advised that you must confirm the same from PTCL call center, rather then acting upon my words.

    PTCL will have to improve its service first. And if we do upgrade our packages what benefit it will give us.

    • i know ptcl have to improve their service but thanks god that its my third year with ptcl broadband and i never face any major issues with them.

  • A

    There are quite higher chances that those who are currently using 1 or 2 Mbps, if go for this upgrade package of 4 Mbps, will not want to switch back to previous as they would have become used to.

    This is really good Marketing approach and PTCL have been doing this in past.

    • Irfan

      haha yeah u r ryt maan tricks for marketing :P

  • B

    why they didn’t not mention this on their web site:

    Customers can downgrade their package before September 30th, to avoid extra charges.

    This should be written there so that customers can have proof if they wanna to downgrade without any extra charges.

  • Well their technical staff is so lazy, its pretty much impossible to have your 4mb bandwidth before September 30th.

  • Mak

    What about those already on 4 mbps?? Will they get a discount?? If not, then a better strategy for them would be to downgrade their base package to 1 mbps and then get 4 mbps speed till 30th Sep – a savings of over Rs. 2000!

  • Ahmed

    lol 1st PeeTCL have to upgrade their infrastructure. Most of PeeTCL BB users cant use 4MB due to old and expired infrastructure. If they upgrade to 4MB they will face alot of problems like disconnecting problem, noise in telephone etc. I have experienced all this.

    • Zaki Uddin

      You are right Bro, i’m facing this problem,
      i so wanna curse at PTCL right now, why they advertises The 4Mb speeds, when they dun have infrastructure to provide that,
      in this country there is no body who can take action against them?? even PTA don’t accept complains against PTCL >.<

  • Its a market tactic to put users on 4mb plan to get extra charges as when i start with ptcl broadband i started with 4mb package but when i charged Rs.5000 i downgrade it to 2mb so now i am much curious to either upgrade it to 4mb or not?

  • QMR

    Its a good offer for me special, i’ll down grade my two DSL from 4mb to 2mb, it will save my 2000/ rupees for two monthe

  • That’s good offer

  • Hu Mobile

    Offer tu Achii hai Pher 1Mbps Walle Kay aKarree :(

    Un ka KAya Kasoor hai :(

  • shami

  • Muneer Ahmad

    My brother called PeeTCL helpline they said it will take 7 days to upgrade..:P
    PeeTCLazy

    • Askani

      Mine was upgraded in only 4 hours….

    • Askani

      Mine was upgraded in only 4 hours.

  • shami

    mein nay to apply kar dia hai mujhay b 7 days hee kaha hai but ab kia ho sakta hai jo b ho ga dekha jaay ga

  • I also called on 1236 and chat with hina at ptcl and she confrimed me that my 2mb connection will be upgraded to 4mb within 7 days and i also confirmed that we have to downgrade it to 3days earlier before 30sep and there are no charges for downgrade.

    Remember when you get 4mb package then take care of your downlods as they must be with in limit of 300gb/month otherwise you will pay Rs.5000.

    To chek your daily weekly and monthly downloads, uploads and total bandwidth check this software: Bandwidth Meter Pro

  • Adeel Nazir

    I dont know if any one really works in PTCL or not… just requested to upgrade my connection from 2 mb to 4 mb and have been told that it will take 7 days just for upgradation….which should not take more then 10 to 15 mins per connection if you dont know how to do it…. give me access of you systems and i will do the port upgradation and package change in 5 mins… :)… YOU LOSSERS……

  • Ahmed

    wao wao wao for just few clicks of mouse you have to wait for 7 days! Shame on you PeeTCL
    After 31 hours of request for promotion, my connection is still 2MB.

    • Adeel Nazir

      Looks like jab koi request aaye gi PeeTCL kay pass for upgradationof link they will announce a vacency for an engineer and start hiring ppl to do the needful that is the only way it will take 7 days else i dont find a reason for such a delay…

  • Panjguri

    using it, enjoying it and loving it. but i’m worried how will i go back to 1Mbps which i was using till yesterday???

  • Rehmat baba

  • Zaki Uddin

    Ooo yarr, i am stuck at this, i upgraded my 1mb student package to 4mb via this package, and upgrade was completed in 2 to 3 hours, but working like a beast for 5 to 6 hours, it started disconnecting automatically,modem was loosing DSL connectivity after every minute or two,
    i made complaints, gone to exchange, even emailed to higher official of my area, but again internet works for several hours, then the whole disconnecting thing starts,

    finally they said we dun have powerfull enough copper lines at your area to provide 4mb speed, and i was like, agar line capable nhin thin tou mujhe 4mb diya Q ?? :(

    and now i want to downgrade back to my 1mb student package, so i am still having problems in downgrading back, they are saying provide all the requirements again OMG :(( i’m so pissed of, 5 days and internet is still down,

    i would recommend to every one before upgrade, meet your DSL guy at exchange and ask if your line supports 4mb or not, as i’m now in the BIG MESS, i think i will disconnect my Landline and will order new one, Means More Kharcha ;-(((

    @PTCL ramadan men Mujhe tang kar rahe ho, Tumhen Allah Samjhe ga :((

  • Mashhood

    yar aap ko kisi higher official se bat krne ki zarurt ni hai aap just line man ko pakro woh aapka SNR Margin theek kre ga and your net will be rocking…I had same problem lakin ab meri line fit hai net to tum ne check kr he lia hai 1 mb per 4mbps mil raha hai…:P

  • Mr A

    upgrade to ramazan package then it will take you 15 days to downgrade and they will mess up your speed , ptcl is run by useless bunch of ppl with no technical skill especially dsl officer or whatever you call it..

  • M arslan

    yeh sab jhoot hai main ne apna pakage 4mb main convert kraya tha magar bll 4mb ka ata hai our speed 2mb ati hai

    • Ch Adil

      Bhai app ne 4mb per convert to karwa liya tha lakin app kii bandwith speed nahin barhi to app koo apne ptcl kii area office main ja kar apni bandwith speed barhana chahia tha phir app kii speed full 4mb ani thii.

  • shehzie

    NOW ITS OFFICIAL

    PTCL helpline says “internet ki speed download kernay kay liay non-peak hours (raat 12 say subha 12) per apni download speed speedtest.ptcl.net per check karain”

    this means kay aap kay connection ab dedicated nahi raha… i have experianced 450kB/s in night and around 40-60kB/s in morning, which is really pathetic.

    the support person that visited my house also said kay ptcl per 4 mb connection per max aap ko 200kB/s ki speed milay gi.. simply pathetic.. may nay device nikaal ker dikhai “watten thunderbolt” 2 mb ki aur poocha kay bhai is per kitni speed daytay hon gay wateen walay to bonga ban gaya banda.. their staff comes afterwards PTCL policies are really really pathetic… first of all there is no coordination between departments.. Billing aap ki 2 ghantay may start ho jati hay new connection ki, complaint kay baad staff 3-4 din may visit kerta hay… phir pair change hotay hain aur khanchay mangay jatay hain.. DSL wala line man per dalta hay aur line man DLS walay per… mujhay bhi kaha gaya kay aap DSL officer say rabta karain.. may nay kaha kay aap logo ki reach may nahi hay kia DSL officer.. aap ka kaam hay mujhay service provide kerna… ajeeb system hay.. will be switching to thunderbolt indefinately..

  • shehzie

    for those on student package:

    they can upgrade to 4 mb too, but on downgrade back to 1 mb student they will need to show again proper documentation and fill and attest the form “again” from concerned school/college/university to get their old connection back on old charges..

    really really really x 10000000 pathetic.

  • Miraj Ahmad Khan
