PTCL Announces New CharJi EVO Products and Packages

Amid competition from cellular operators, PTCL has announced new plans for its CharJi service that is theoretically capable of delivering 36Mbps wireless broadband speeds.

Now available with different monthly data limits, EVO Charji service comes at as low as Rs. 1,800 per month. Additionally, a new plan is also introduced with monthly limit of 100GBs.

Not to mention, data limits are something that users have disapproved so far. But considering all wireless broadband services come with a data cap, EVO services are still considered a better choice if you are heavy data user on the go.

PTCL is clearly facing tough time from 3G operators, and this why they had to explicitly mention that their CharJi service is four to five times faster than 3G networks.

To have better idea of how heated the broadband market is, check below comparison chart that PTCL has posted on its Facebook page.
