Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) and Bahria Town have today signed MoU agreement, through which PTCL will deploy Information Communication Technology (ICT) services and infrastructure in Bahria Enclave, Islamabad.

The agreement shall enable residents of Bahria Enclave to experience superior telecom services of PTCL including voice telephony, broadband internet and SmartTV as well as Pakistan’s fastest and most reliable EVO wireless broadband internet services.

The agreement was signed by Tariq Salman, Chief Technical Officer PTCL and Maj Gen.(R) Shaukat Sultan, Executive Director Bahria Town in the presence of Walid Irshaid, President and CEO PTCL and Malik Riaz Hussain, Ex-Chairman Bahria Town. Dr. Riaz Inayat, PTCL Executive Vice President (EVP) Network Development;  Cdr. (R) M. Ilyas along with other senior officials from PTCL and Bahria Town were also present at the occasion.

Tariq Salman, Chief Technical Officer PTCL while speaking at the signing ceremony said, “We are pleased to partner with Bahria Town and look forward to a cooperative and mutually beneficial relationship. Over the years, PTCL has made concerted efforts to deploy world-class telecom infrastructure for the development of the country and its economy”.

“Our goal is to enable our society to get the most benefit out of our advanced ICT solutions and provide our customers with value-centric services”, he added further.

Maj Gen. (R) Shaukat Sultan, Executive Director Bahria Town said at the occasion, “It’s a matter of great pride for Bahria Town to partner with PTCL, country’s largest and leading telecommunication services provider. We understand the needs for improvement in the ICT sector, and for this reason out of the six fiber optic networks that PTCL has deployed, this would be the second one for Bahria town residents. We plan to move forward with the same spirit for future projects as well”.

PTCL would be using GPON (Fiber to the home) technology, considered as the strongest candidate for widespread deployments. Bahria Town would provide the space for PTCL Exchange building, EVO BTS Tower and indoor spacing for staff along with the provision of space for PTCL Customer Support Center. Moreover, un-interrupted power supply will also be ensured to these facilities.

This is the sixth PTCL deployment of such high-speed network in Pakistan. Previously, the company has connected Cantonment Exchange Karachi, Gulberg Exchange Lahore, F-11 Exchange Islamabad, Centaurus and Bahria Town Golf City Exchange with its latest fiber optic network.


  • Crap, I hope this doesn’t mean exclusivity for PTCL. Nayatel is just finishing up installing their grid in Saffari Villas. After that it’s Bahria Town.

      Nayatel could not even give proper service in F10/2, how are they gonna cover Bahria Town which is quadruple in size. Please do not come and employ cheap marketing tactics on these forums. Nayatel is so bad I will not even recommend it to my in-laws. Got rid of it just last month after paying a mini fortune. Improve your services that is the best marketing ploy.

      • Cheap marketing tactics? is everyone here a complete moron. I don’t work for Nayatel, but their support for us who like to play games online and stream is unmatchable. And that’s why I’m looking forward to it.

    If you ask me, I don’t find any issues with PTCL signing MoU with Bahria Town. As far as my knowledge goes, I have been a PTCL subscriber for straight 4 years now and have always experienced better, might not call it the best, internet connectivity. I also used Witribe and Nayatel and both of them sucked hard. Coming back to the topic, Fiber to the Home (GPON) will really enhance internet connectivity for Bahria town residents. I hope that they don’t keep GPON limited to executive villas and let other bahria town residents also enjoy this technology.

    GPON services are a step ahead of any current technology in Pakistan. It has been used exclusively before but finally PTCL is launching it, firstly in Bahria Town and hopefully everywhere else soon. We should not worry about the price tag as PTCL has always been considerate in this department. They know the formula for being successful and its simply to cater for the person from every walk of life. However, it seems some companies are just here to make money and they think everyone has offshore accounts in the Bahamas.
