PTCL Upgrades Broadband Student Package to 2Mbps for 2 Months

PTCL_logo_FeaturesPakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) has announced that students can experience higher speeds of 2Mbps without any additional charges for next two months.

Earlier, student package users were getting 1Mbps internet broadband speed.

PTCL said that all 1Mbps student package holders are automatically upgraded to 2Mbps for free. This offer will be valid till 30 June 2013, while standard 2 Mbps tariff of Rs. 1,299 per month will be applicable from 1st July 2013.

Subscribers, who wish to opt out of this offer can call 1236 or email at [email protected].

Here are offer highlights:

  • 2 Mbps Speed for the Price of 1 Mbps
  • Unlimited Downloads
  • All Student 1 Mbps Customers have been upgraded to Student 2 Mbps
  • No additional charges till 30th June 2013
  • From 1st July 2013 standard Student 2 Mbps tariff of Rs. 1,299 per month will be applicable
  • All upgraded customer who do not wish to continue with Student 2 Mbps can revert back to Student 1 Mbps by calling “1236”

It merits mentioning here that PTCL customers are usually not happy with such short-duration free upgrades, after which they are charged the standard tariff without any discount.


  • thanks for adding this post .. i have 1 mb student package .. but still i am getting only 1mb. ya to unhoon ne upgrade nahi kya hai mera connection ya jhoot bol rahe hai .. aur yay janna tha k uggrade hone k baad after june 2 mb ki price 1299 hogi?

  • i am getting 2mb download speed for 7 days so i contacted ptcl helpline and they said if i revert the monthly student package to 1 mb charges will be 1099 per month the rate has been revised.Once again ptcl done it after 8 months increase the price 100 and auto upgraded every one.PTCL is nothing but a fraud

    • PTCL is our national company bro, and we should appreciate its revolution in the broadband industry of Pakistan. Reverting back on 1 Mbps is just a call 1236 away.

  • I am not really happy… why they pushing me forcefully for 2MB.. : (

    hey Admin, Is it difficult to reverting back in an old package ?

    can anyone one have experience of reverting back the package through 1236 ?

  • PTCL has forcefully upgraded student package to 2Mb package so that after June they can get Rs. 1299 instead of basic student package charges. Kind of fraud with people!

  • PTCL n Ufone are trying to squeeze every drop of blood from their customers……..for your kind info…..its not Rs.1236….but Rs.1700-1800

    • Dear Maqsood, I have checked, its Rs. 1099 till 30th June-13 and Rs. 1299 onwards for 2Mbps student package. its on ptcl website.

      • AoA

        Dear Huma,

        May be u r lucky enough……….u know what is “Special” with PTCL they are charging (Rs.1500) u on Package conversion……like if u want to downgrade your package from 2Mbps to 512Kbps……u have to pay additional Rs.1500……..is this justifiable and logical???
