PTCL Limits its EVO and Nitro Packages at 50 GB per Month

PTCLPakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) has put a fair usage policy limit on its EVO and Nitro packages, that were previously offered with unlimited downloads.

According to PTCL’s website, both EVO and Nitro packages will now allow 50GB of maximum download/upload data per month.

Monthly download limit of 75GBs will be applicable on Nitro Cloud packages as well.

It maybe recalled that PTCL’s EVO services are charge at Rs. 2,100 per month while Nitro services are charged at Rs. 2,999 per month.

PTCL has not announced any additional charges if this limit of 50GB per month on EVO and Nitro is reached. It is still unclear that how customers will use any additional bandwidth if Fair Usage Policy is reached in a month.

Certain PTCL DSL packages are also limited.

It merits mentioning here that EVO and Nitro are PTCL’s flagship wireless broadband services.

PTCL has over 1 million customers using its EVO and Nitro Services.

  • bullllllllllllllshiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttttttttttttt….!!!
    i m downloading 200+ gb of data per month… :(
    BTCL suxxxx.!!

    • Yaar, Behzaad, aap keun bezaaron wali batein kar rahe hain, my EVO wifi cloud is giving me good speeds.

        • hann,, mine was average 350gb per month, and now after 50 gb, it starts sucking:@:@:@:@:
          slow browsing and a download speed of 5-10 kb per sec :(

    • 50 GB is more than enough for a normal person.. Stop downloading adulterated content you’ll be fine.

      • I present “InternetCensus2012”, the 569 GB whopper. How is one supposed to download it with these bandwidth limit caps.

        • i m using world call at 8MB and i can use unlimited internet and must have the speed og not less then 900KB/s i can download that but this file can’t be copied after download coz of hard disk block size or u can say copied is redistricted.

      • how 50gb is enough for a normal person ? not everyone download adult contents. there are people download movies and games. and now a days one game is about 16gb which i guess is far more bigger than adult contents.

        • hahahaa sahi kaha bhai… us ki soch hi mehdood hai… aur ptcl apne ap me mehdoood hai… logon ko nacha raha hai sirf is liye kiu k koi competetion nahi nahi.. koi private company kolta jo sab jaga kaam krta tb Ptcl koi gerat karta

      • If it could get your internet activity profile, your whole 50 GB shall turn out to be pedophilia pr*n. Before being judgmental about others, learn to stop being a pervert.
        If we download a single game, it shall consumer around 25GB.

        • Fuck you and your pissed up mind.Eveyone is not fuked up like you(infact you seem like those pedos,,because your biased and stupid judgemental behaviour reveals yourself).Avg games in this era have size anywhere b/w 5gb-13-14gb..Also english seasons have an avg size of 5-8 gb..Brrip movies 1.5-2.5 gb..So this mean by just download 4/5 games and some seasons all my 3k rupees have been spent..The consumers are being duped by ptcl you strawbrained weeabo..Dumbass idiot

      • well 50gb is enough for burger f.b boys, & those watching adult stuff…!!
        for a learner this limit is fucking annoying…!!

      • Mr Saleem na apne soch ke akasi kr de or sab ko apna jasa samjh leya
        ha. bahi internet per bohat sa online kaam hoty han. hamari farm ka
        software b online ha.

      • you are such a moron Mr Saleem…………now a days hollywood movies and games are far more bandwidth hoggers than any of adult content available on internet………..u should update ur general knowledge and so called common sense which o seriously doubt u have……..

    • i don’t have any issue with that limit,for normal user that limit is more than enough, if you want to see a movie buy it instead of downloading.

    • yes i am agree with you behzaad… my usage is 250+ data per month .. but since it place limit.. only 10 days pass with 50+ gb data after that ptcl shift the user from revB to 1x … its to much slow… i spit out ptcl….

      ptcl is fraud …

    • Sorry to tell you PTCL is the only good ISP. Who else is giving you a service this good?

      • Yes, I agree, and this is the only reason for their huge customer-base. But it does not give them the right to do whatever they want irrespective of it being right or wrong, does it dear?

      • Actually, PTCL is the only ISP around. It is clearly a monopoly now. They destroyed great companies like Nayatel, Micronet, LDN. Are you a troll or what? You are making no sense at all.

    • c’mon its not that bad, its about giving equal services to everyone. some people use it to download 300 gigs which limits others usage

      • Please note the concept of broadband is not about web browsing.
        web browsing sy agay jahaan aur bhi hein

  • I got to know this today when i called PTCL, that my nitro 9.3 is very slow from past 7 days, they said you have crossed your FUP limit of 50GB per month so you will continue getting only 256kbps until 1st of August, while their billing date is 20th of July. WTF is this, I am going to try some other ISP

    • I am facing the same issue…
      Now I have to switch to some other source of internet.

        • Aged people, who shall die soon, do nothing except reading news or checking emails. That is how even dialup internet is enough for you.

        • sir there is so many things to do on internet accept porn..
          you can streams bluray 1080p quality movies and also you can play games….
          all of these requires you the bandwidth at least 120 GB per months…
          do you know that we all are using smart phones and other internet connected devices they sucks minimum 100 mb’s per day with out using it because of multitasking apps on phones

    • if you like to download more than you should go for DSL because that gave 300GB limit,but on evo i think 50gb is enough.

    • I have same problem form last 3 days. I am web designer and this limit is to much pain for me. Ptcl need to increase minimum limit to 100 gb. now we need to pay 20 rs for 1 gb in this limit.

    • same problem is here bro my net became slow and i called ptcl they said that i have crossed download limit of 50gb and now speed will be slow but day before yesterday i paid bill and then net worked at good speed means 5mb-download speed for one day only and today its slow again now they say they will correct it on 1st august means that they will reset volume.

  • DSL FUP is 300GB per month for all the packages.
    There is only around 500k Evo subscribers of PTCL where as over 1 million DSL subscribers.

    • propakistani is quiet late with this article as this happened some time ago. I have not had a problem with my EVO and 50 GB is more than enough for me…

    • why would you even think about turning it off lol …how much data do you use a month? i am dead sure less than 35

      • Is it the same nutcase who is posting with female names? Anyways, go play with your dolls or makeup kit. Internet is meant for grown-ups.

  • even if you lot download 1080p 1 gb movie 50 times only then your bandwidth limit exceeds, apart from that it is perfect for me. no worries. there should be a reason why ptcl did this.

      • not everyone uses internet for Facebook and WhatsApp chat……so u should get a life!! There are tons of other things on the internet as well….

      • you go to …….. my monthly download is 150gb how can i survive on wingle half pakage 1250 (75gb) everytime i fear i dont cross limit i have 2mb dsl there is a freedom of dowloading 300gb on it but slow speed as compared to evo wingle i love evo speed not downloading limit of wingle ptcl when you will increase downloading limits or you going to loose customers of evo

        • haha why would one be jealous because you use 50 gig in a week. you dont even use 20 gig a month lolol .

            • tum ne tu isko nanga kar dia…hahahahha
              Ye net cafe jata bechara. Wahan jharo lagata hai aur phir isko ek ghanta free net milta hai.

        • I work Online. the files I transfer and receive in one go are like over 100 MB. These are financial models. this makes my daily transfers like over 2 GB daily. this is besides my Games download which are usually 16-20 GB in size. Secondly I have learnt that PTCL does not give me dedicated bandwidth of 3mb on my EVO, it is shared among 5 users. which is one reason for degraded service ( PTCL is Banwidth thief ).

          Now I am also being capped. That is a bullshit. There is no escaping greedy bastards that are everywhere. How can this country survive all this senselessness.

    • you are sick i know what kind of stuff you download,if you really like than buy DVD for that and don’t blame the internet provider,everywhere in world one person don’t use more than 1gb a month but in pakistan….story is different because of you people.

  • very good step by PTCL,i really appreciate very good step,for a normal internet user (not adult lovers) that limit is enough if you want to surf net.

    • well hamid bhai there is a lot more on internet than just adult content, you just need to widen your world…

  • i have DSL package with 300GB limit and last month i was surprised to know that in whole month i just use 19gb of data….and if PTCL is offering 50gb on evo,i think that is more than enough,i don’t know what kind of people are mourning about it,get some life guys i know what kind of stuff you download :)

  • can any body tell me.. i want to buy wingle. is this 50 gb applicable on wingle? and how much it cost about 50 gb?

    • 50gb limit is imposed on every device, dont get evo/nitro/wingle crap you will regret it..speed might be reliable but connectivity isnt and once u get it, ready to face stupid limitations and bandwidth caps

  • Putting 50GB limit on a 9.3 Mbps connection is pointless. I will end the subscription of my Evo nitro and put the device in trash can.

    Also… It seems a lot comments here are posted by desperate PTCL employees. Sore losers.

    • why would you even remotely think that? i dont believe in that theory. its been a year i moved to pak and i have been using ptcl since. theres not much option in pakistan really. so my best bet is ptcl. and its way cheaper. its funny how lads here crying over for 50 GIG rather thn actually get out of your houses and ask for your RIGHT which is unblocked youtube.

      • trust me, they just reported 31% growth. these companies actually work whereas go break IT ministers bones for not launching 3G rather thn criticising here. freaks

        • ran from? wow your just some next level crap. i am back in pakistan no? isnt that the whole point. i like to live where my roots are. no one RUNS from his/her country when they travel or go for holidays. you sir are a freak and needs some well thorough smacking, aswell as when you TRAVEL someone needs to stop using the word YOU AREY RUNNING away from your city, country. go suck on your corrupt government.

          • p.s keep living in a sh**T whole yyou are in right now. i have seen a better world. and i am trying to make pakistan one. people like you ask for rights when you go to other countries, but when your own countrymen come back you treat them like this. shove this whole article up yourse please will you.

            • We dont know whether you were deported for being unfit for civilized world. or Perhaps, you came back because you did not find a good pimp.
              Anyways, you need lobotomy. Once it is done, then you can reapply for US visa.
              While you are here, improve yourself first, before even thinking about changing the whole country.
              And yes, you are back to where your roots are.

  • Are you guys kidding me with this “50GB is enough” bullcrap? Does it make any sense that a 1Mbps connection has a cap of 300GB and a 3.1/9.3Mbps connection just 50GB? I believe most of the people posting crap like this use a 1Mbps student package.

    50GB is enough for losers who only use Facebook. I use my EVO 3.1Mbps for academic purposes and my statistics say that I have downloaded around 70GB in a month (statistics attached). I am a developer/student and if you’re anything like me you’d know what I mean: I regularly download video tutorials which range from 1GB to 2.5GB. Not to mention the FTP/other online services I use all the time. Add that to client & family Skype calls and development software/updates and 50GB looks a joke in front of it all. Heck, even a single Youtube lecture of around 50 minutes is ~400MB. Besides, I do not know what type of transfer monitor PTCL uses. Most of times the data is inaccurate on my Statistics panel. I concur with another poster here who said “Putting 50GB limit on a 9.3 Mbps connection is pointless.”

    I know PTCL is not going to lose a lot of customers just because of decisions like this, but it surely is losing the edge of being the premium internet service provider. If other companies are wise enough to take advantage from this and offer competitive plans, people WILL be ready to jump ships, including me.

    • i have no idea what kind of academic material you download which as much as 70gb,come on man no body is fool in this world,i don’t know what kind of scholar are you but if you download 50mb of material it take months to read that,i did download a book of 18mb but did’t got time to complete that….and by the way there are libraries so use them,if you download video tutorials that are around 2gb you work 30 days a week,more than 90% people in pakistan work like 20-24 days a week so i think with that calculation the exceptional case like you can easily do all the stuff on 50gb,so don’t fool others bro.

      • This is your 5th comment in this post. Why don’t you open come as a ptcl emlpoyee to face all these comments. Instead, you prefer to use a fake identity (girl name) to defend your organization. The whole point is, you can’t simply put 50gb bw limit on a connection more than 5 mbps, it will run out in few days.

        It is none of your business what user uses this bandwidth for. You are probably some low lifer who keeps watching others activity logs and start judging their personalities. Grow up and have some guts to come with your real identity and lastly, stop invading privacy.

        • He is a guy but does not have manhood. So let him pretend to be a girl. Even eunuchs read tech news and comment according to their limited exposure to their technology. Lets ignore this troll.

      • Wow. You, my dear, are a genius.

        1. I just explained “what kind of academic material” I download “which as much as 70gb”.
        2. If you were not able to “get the time” to read a single 18MB book, how does that qualify you to judge how much others can spend on reading on average?
        3. 30 days a week and 20-24 days a week? Wow. I’m not even gonna comment on that. Even if you meant 30 days a month, again, HOW THE HECK can you judge how much time others are spending in their work, be it professional, academic or personal? You seem too sure about “more than 90% people in Pakistan”, are you from Gallup or something?
        4. No, I cannot “easily do all the stuff on 50gb”, I just took 15 minutes to explain why and I am not going to do it again.

        To sum it all up, you are a genius, thank you for your comment. :)

      • I have a 3D TV. And i bought it for watching 3D movies. A single movies makes around 32GB. Will you please shut up now?
        And why are you so obsessed with adult content? If you know what is it, you definitely have used it. You were not born with the ‘knowledge’.
        Post your PTCL customer ID. I shall post your web browsing history. Before objecting at others, come clean first.

  • PTCL is the only dog in market capturing 3G market. let other competitors come and then we will see how PTCL survive.

  • Ptcl Evo lose soon more customer when pup applies 75Gb

    please if you Ptcl Evo get more customer then give u more pup up to 100 Gb

  • if only 5000 out of 1million PTCL customers put in request for connection termination. All the upper management of PTCL will lose some of their sleep.

    But all the terminating request should be on one day or on successive days.

  • for those who saying 50Gb is enough for them well sorry guys not everyone using only facebook and other chat yes this is enough for those guys who are using only facebook but its not enough for everyone and this days everyone wants to make more money from people of pakistan

  • OLD News. I have already shifted to “Connect Communications” my Nitro was giving only 35 KB over Internet Download Manager after consuming 50 GB in a month.

  • OLD News. I have already shifted to “Connect Communications” my Nitro was giving only 35 KB over Internet Download Manager after consuming 50 GB in a month.

    Speed Test:

      • I am using Connect Orange 3 mbps package which is for RS. 1200 monthly. it is working great no issues so far

  • i m downloading 100+ gb of data per month.and i don’t have any other internet service in my city not even DSL:((((((((((( i think i need to sale my gtx 780.

  • Now it’s time to move baby to other ISP. 50gb on 9.3mb is piece of crap. thank god i have not paid the bill yet. Local net Providersss i am coming again….

    BIG Slap on PTCL face. @Aamir please make sure you will write another article in few days that #ptclsucks loose evo users.

  • and one more thing how the hell they can announce limit in middle of the month. WTH is there policy? and when they informed users ?

  • PTCL is using cheap tactics.What a person should do who have to download lectures?
    How can a student survive in such a low bandwidth?
    According to my experience in 50 gb you can only browse websites there is no concept of downloading

  • If they want to continue this 50 gb limit so they need to increase speed from 256kbps to 512kbps after limit exceed.

  • on my office work i can normally use 2.4 to 2.8 Gb daily on 3.1 EVDO. on this limit i can’t do my official work.

    Limit lagani he thi ti phelay lagatay, jab sab ne 4000 7000 laga k purchase kar li to ab in ko limit ki yaad aye. PTCL rocks Subscribers Shocked…. :D

  • Sure you can even find 700mb 720p, but do you really think it’s the same quality as a 2GB 720p? Quality 720p movies (properly encoded so you don’t notice problems on a 32-36″ TV) are in the 3-5GB range. 1080p is larger.

  • There should be some class action suit. This is evidently a fraud. Devices were sold with claim of purely unlimited downloads and it was a marketing lie.
    I say, kick all ‘shahzada’ companies out of the country. We have suffered enough. First they blackmailed us and we do not have 3/4G to date. Then they blackmailed other big ISPs and they went out of business. Then they coerced us into implementing ICH and caused huge financial burden on expats. And they held our $800 million (approx) since 2006 which is nothing short of stealing our money when tried to put a stop to their land grabbing motives.

  • Bakwas Service PTCL, all customers Boycotts the Services and Force them to Remove the Limit of 50gb, unlimited means unlimited what is this * Bullshit?

  • PTCL ,kutti k bachon randi ki aulado , kuttay ki naslo, zardari k pillo, Remove LIMIT BCs MCs

  • Yaar PTCL is the Pakistani Company, so you people are critcizing it. Every telecom company has applied the limits and its the true business. Buffet does not mean that a barat comes and eat the full food in a hotel. 50 GB is more than enough in its price. In UK, US, Australia every where is the same limits applied on each internet service package.

    • in which world u live man i guess u still using dail up or u r paid employee of PTCL 50 GB is nothing now a days

  • PLUS PRICES ARE WRONGGGGGGGGGGGG !!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW IT COSTS 3600 RUPEES IN NITRO AND NOW THIS FUP ! COME ON THIS SUCKS YAAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • THEY PUT ON THE TAXES OF 584 RUPEES + 3000 MONTHLY PAYMENT = 3600 !!!!! THIS SUXXXX !!!!! WILL HAVE TO MOVE TO ANOTHER CONNECTION AS MY WORK SOLELY COMPLIES ON DOWNLOADING AND UPLOADING !!!!! MY FREELANCING WILL GO DOWN LIKE HEAPS OF HELLS WITH THIS !!!!!

  • I am a researcher and use to download many softwares. This month I just downloaded MATLAB 2013, AUTOCAD, one game worth 18GB and few other related softwares, And my 50GB FUP was ended in just 7 days, since then I am getting 256kbps speed not even getting good speed to surf the internet. Internet is not only about using facebook and checking emails. Different users have different FUP requirements. Atleast it is not enough for me. By the way are we foolish that we are paying 3000 per months just for 50GB. If just few GBs were enough for us then we could have get 256kbps dsl link then why ptcl introduced 9.3Mbps link.

    • And by the way this was not declared in the agreement when we purchased the device they just showed us UNLIMITED in bold letters.

  • F**K You PTCL!!
    They Are Increasing Broadband Prices Day By Day..
    1 MB BB USER.. _|_ In Yo As* PTCL!!

  • I had a long discussion with PTCL today, I apparently hit 139GB and was downgraded to a 256Kbps connection due to my usage. The funny thing is that I own a PTCL WifI Nitro Cloud which is supposed to give me bandwidth between 4.5 to 9.3 Mbps. Keeping that in mind a 50-75GB Bandwidth cap will vanish like a puff of smoke. The Higher ups at PTCL need to get their act straight and at least put the limit to around 200 Gigs for a 9.3 Mbps connection. The people at PTCL are fine people, it’s the structured policies that are going to be the ruin.. Very disappointed with PTCL..

  • What the hell it means i cant download games via torrent any more ……………….i am going to switch to any other ISP for sure
