Remember when we last told you about PTCL’s (ultra) high speed broadband over FTTH, it appears that things are rolling in the positive direction. PTCL had then denied to share any information with us then, we assume the project was in test phase at that time.
Now – through a WiredPakistan user – we have come to know that high speed broadband services over FTTH are being offered by PTCL in limited areas of Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi.
According to a marketing brochure these high speed broadband services are offered at following prices:
- 4 Mbps: Rs. 2,999
- 6 Mbps: Rs. 5,999
- 8 Mbps: Rs. 7,999
- 10 Mbps: Rs. 10,999
- 20 Mbps: Rs. 13,499
- 50 Mbps: Rs. 15,999
- 100 Mbps: Rs. 25,999
All these packages – if availed – come with unlimited on-net calls and Smart TV services for free. One time installation charges of Rs. 15,000 are applicable.
50 Mbps package appears to be best value and most suitable for various medium to large-sized businesses. Home users, on other hands, will be contented with 10 Mbps at most.
Areas of service availability include F-11 in Islamabad and Centaurus, Blue Area in Islamabad.
It appears that services are being tested as of now as pilot and hence details for service availability is very limited. Internet hungry enthusiast can contact PTCL corporate sales’ staff for further information and service deployment.
