    Wow, the world had provided this service way back 4 years back and PTCL has just got to know about it. Great innovation guys..

  • Beaten By Love

    only source for collecting money by PTCL

  • Furqan

    bht hi weshi step!

  • zain

    what is the advantage of having static IP?

    • M.Fahad

      put 4 wireless cam in your home , And monitor you home anywhere in the world or just see what’s going on in the house . One good reason to have static ip .

  • Shahid Saleem

    200 a month is excessive. Especially when on a 4Mbit link you can only upload 50-70 kbyte/sec.

  • Asif

    Jab net per online movies dekhtay hain free mai (Mega Video and many others), to wahan per her IP address ke liye ek limited bandwith allow hoti hai. Agar net reconnect karo to normally new IP ki waja se movie restart hojati hai. Static IP mai ye facility to nahi hogi, I think so.

  • Saad

    Witribe already gives static IP at PKR 500/YEAR (not per month). Barri meherbani PTCL walon; Pehlay apna internet chala lo sahi tarah, phir commercial apps ka infrastructure banana! :-)

    • momi

      saad bhai, witribe me static ip kaise milti hai? aur iska faida kia hai? me ne connection share kia hua hai, kia mje sharing me koi help milygi is se?
      please guide me.

      • admin

        Sharing main koi help nahi milay gi… aur meray khayal main app ko static IP lainay ka koi faida nahi hoga.

        • momi

          admin, kia me apny doosry PCs ki bandwidth control kr skta hn is k zaryee?
          q k tplink router static ip recommend krta hai, ta k ip change na ho.

          • Wise Guy

            bandwidth control karnay k leya cisco/linksys ka configurable Wifi router use karo

            • momi

              but tplink’s router has an option for controlling bandwidth

          • Muhammad Fawad

            You may use Mikrotik router for this purpose. Its cheap and nice. If you have static IP you may access your system and monitor all users activity from Mikrotik easily.

  • Aamir

    Agr yahan bijli ki load shedding ka masla na hota to mein zarur khareed leta web server banane k liye.

    • H Ali Mansoor

      bhai web server k ley ip agr le lo tu phir mery he modem k sath connect hoga tu stattic ip work kare ga kya…..?
      ya phir kahe bhi web server ley jao or net sy connect karoga tu chal jaye ga

  • good step

  • Baichdey

    thats a good move by ptcl..

  • Saqib Ameen

    well, nice step but as beaten by love said, it’s only source of earning for PTCL,it should be given for free.!!

  • ameerhamza

    I guess it was already offering static ip :

  • Saqib

    Static IP is useful for server hosting(http/ftp/mail/CS) but tell me how someone can host server with uplink of 256kbits to 1 Mbits
    (+ 300gb data restriction). It is just another trick by PTCL to make profit.

  • A source of jokes

    I think this service should be free of charge

    • Shahid Saleem

      IP addresses (for IPv4) are expensive. That is why they prefer giving dynamic.

      • Muhammad Fawad

        They have packets of IPs.

        • Shahid Saleem

          You are confusing technology. Packets of IPs???

  • YahooPic

    Wao, thtaz a great initiative Keep it up , PTCL.

  • Salman Abbas

    Kabhi kabhi IP change karna parta hai >_> Can we ask PTCL to give us a new IP or something if we have a static IP?

  • anas shah

    propakistani.. aap log apni urdu web ko update q nahi karte kam se kam aeham khabroon ko kardiya karen

  • sham

    PTCL is really bad company in pakistan to provide net services, I begged them to kindly take of your router from my home and they really did not ear on that , even it was holy ramdan, they took advantage because they simply send money in bill of phone line, therefore they dont care much about their customer, now i have micronet, best people best service, no problem of any type.

  • S.M.Saqib

    Can someone confirm that LDN has no limit on 2M and 4M packages like PTCL capped 300GB.

    Waiting for prompt response.

    Thanks

    • Asif

      There is no cap of download limit on LDN packages. PTCL is skimming out money out of ur pockets.

  • Stryker

    Old info, I remember back in 2009 this service was available at same rate, I wanted to have a dedicated server for COD4 but then I relied on open DNS .

    • Abbas Siddiqui

      Dear Stryker,

      I am sorry for message long time since your message. I need your help to set up static IP by the help of opendns. Can you help me in this regards?

      Thanks.

    • Abbas Siddiqui

      I can be reached by [email protected]

  • Well this service should be FREE of cost but PTCL is trying to make more money.

  • Daniyal

    Whats the point of having a static IP when the Upload limit is stricted to 50kb/sec on 4mb internet . The upload will be too slow to host a server.

  • Taimur

    I wish they could offer more than 1MB upstream on VDSL. But here is something which I would like to show you regarding PTCL Static IPs:

    I’m not paying anything for it. If you’re a *nix Administrator & Expert with Cisco VLANs, then forget about paying 200 PKR for Static IPs. Have a look at the screenshots.

    By the way, here is my room (in my home) where I’ve setup all this:

    Waiting for your comments… :) If anyone need my contact number, let me know.

    Thank you,
