Nayatel to Expand its FTTH Broadband Services to Faisalabad and Peshawar

After winning dominating market share in Islamabad and Rawalpindi, Nayatel has decided to expand its FTTH broadband services to Faisalabad and Pehsawar, we have checked with company officials.

Best known for its customer support and parallel broadband services, all thanks to its end-to-end fiber network with support for tens of Mbps speeds, Nayatel is considered as top choice for broadband services in twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

According to a company official, Nayatel has more than 25,000 corporate and home users in both the cities.

After covering Islamabad and major parts of Rawalpindi, company is now looking at expanding its services to Faisalabad, where the network roll out has begun already.

Wahaj-us-Siraj, CEO Nayatel, confirmed ProPakistani that Nayatel’s broadband services will be launched in Faisalabad by April 2016, while surveys for Peshawar are on the way and network roll out in Capital of KPK will start by year end.

FTTH is considered the ultimate broadband technology due to low latency and optimum throughput rates

Nayatel plans to replicate all of its service offerings in Faisalabad, including FTTH, telephony, cable TV, HD TV, video on demand and eCollaboration services.

Nayatel said that its roll-out in Faisalabad will be in phases with high ROI areas to be deployed before others — like it did in Islamabad and Rawalpindi — and hence commercial and dense residential areas are likely to get FTTH broadband soon after the launch. Company said that it is aiming to reach whole of Faisalabad but in phases and with time.

Despite various broadband technologies available in Pakistan, FTTH is considered the ultimate broadband technology due to low latency and optimum throughput rates. FTTH operators — in Pakistan and abroad — have succeeded in offering best broadband experience to users.

  • Still cannot even cover the main sectors of Islamabad like I-10 and G-11. Also no coverage in densely populated PWD, Soan Gardens, Pakistan Town, Korang Town etc.

    • You can contact them and they will start.
      I wrote them an email about my area and its importance for them.
      They reply to my email and told me that they will look into this.
      After around six months they send me an email that they started their services in my area now.
      I was quite happy to see that they listen and work on suggestions.
      Let them know that they have target market and they will hopefully start there.

      • Already email was sent last year. They did reply me for that, but since then no response and no service. I checked with them recently and they said they also have no idea when the service can be started in I-10 Sector. I hope they start it soon to capture huge market here as residents here are tired with the PTCL thing and want good services.

  • I hope they are successful in these Markets, make lot of money, and then they can spend some of that in the ‘poor neighborhoods’ of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, and offer services there as well. Right now, the coverage is very restricted, and they have also pulled out of DSL business.

  • Looks Like FTTH concept is being adopted by small ISPs these days in Lahore recently i got Fibernet FTTH (20 MBps in 2500 PKR only (5000 Installation Charges also included) and got my PTCL 4 MBps closed) so its good for people of pakistan i think every small ISP should start targeting main cities to get handsome share in that city and get PTCL ass Kicked.

  • pathetic speeds of nayatel. was among the first few customers of nayatel. their speed is getting worse day by day because same pipe of bandwidth first was shared by few customers now being shared by many. whenever u call them they will send team with visit charges of 500Rs. or even more and they will just play with ONT and in the end say all ok.
    Their tv has the lowest number of channels. hardly 70 channels in today’s world.
    Wake up nayatel, you will end up selling yourself for nothing to other operators

  • Nayatel should upgrade the bandwidth too. As people mentioned in the comments, Lahore-based Fiberlink is offering speed much more than Nayatel offers. Also, the 4G services launched by Zong and PTCL will definitely affect Nayatel if it doesn’t upgrade.

  • As far as Nayatel’s HD TV service is concerned, I’m sure they must have chalked out a good plan for it but I guess it’s not as simple as it seems because of two reasons:

    1. The movies/series library of HDBox is huge. Currently, they all are served through their Islamabad server and streamed through fibre optic medium. Now, if Nayatel wants to roll out this service to Faisalabad and Peshawar, the movies/series database will need to be replicated. Terabytes of data replicated in multiple cities sounds like an inefficient solution.

    2. HDBox is illegal. Yes, that’s true. HDBox is actually an IPTV service providing live TV and VOD through internet protocol. PTCL also provides a similar service but PTCL has got IPTV license from PEMRA, that Nayatel doesn’t have. Currently this IPTV service of Nayatel is available to a few thousands of subscribers in a single city but as Nayatel adds more cities and subscribers, it may land in hot water. Hence, Nayatel should obtain an IPTV license from PEMRA.

  • Allah da wasta gujranwala me ajao! 25 hazar bnda mint mein katha krke apke network pe le aun ga ! XD kyunke ptcl se sara gujranwala tang he!

  • Wish you had asked the company officials what their plans are for Lahore. Or, they will ignore the second largest city.
