If I’m a console gamer, can I benefit from PTCL? I guess not.
may be … not
Nope. Consoles usually do matchmaking automatically
Best offer for PC gamer <3 1st ever in pakistan
how is this the best offer ? charging PTCL Broadband users 200rs Extra per month to play on their servers ? Even they don’t have official Matchmaking servers …
multiplayer online gamers would understand why , cost isnt much
Em a multiplayer gamer myself, But there servers r not officially approved by steam then why would I pay to play on unranked servers?
Rs.200 Mujh Sy Ly Liya Kro Yar..!! It’s not that much I presume :D
It costs money to host servers….
shit servers and asking for 200 rupees if you don’t own a ptcl 4mb broadband stupid madafakers at ptcl
Well well, look at the list of games, this is insane because “Squad”- steam is not listed in the list, neither Arma 3.
they had ARMA 3 server run for 6 months and hardly saw any Pakistani users.
Never heard of Squad players much in Pakistan though
Dear Umm Khan,
Me and my 8 other friends play Arma 3 more or less everyday, we have a squad and our own Pakistan Army Mod. We are recruiting ppl from Pakistan. If u olay Arma and wants to join your fellow country men, so add me on Steam. My id iz bobyabk

meh … needs newer games.
Does anybody play PS4 games online over PTCL? How’s the experience?
Playing Black Ops 3 on PS4 , PTCL 8 mbps , so far it is good experience
I have an 8 mbps connection and it’s great especially since games have large updates. Ping is also fine in black ops 3
No lags? Does 8mbps connection have fiber connection or something special? As I see the installation charges are 2500 compared to the standard 1500 rupees..
Yes, its fiber connection. There isn’t any lag when playing online with other pakistanis but if you play with Europeons or with anyone else in the world the ping increases a lot which causes more lag.
Do they provide any special modem for the internet or the usual standard tenda (modem+router)?
Depends on your City. I get 200+ms on PTCL to Europe in Lahore (in Rocket League, PS4). I get 145ms on Fiberlink though (Transworld backbone)
I’m currently using Fariya and it’s great allows me to game online (I’m not a hardcore gamer) without any problems except for the fact that GTA V never ever connects online. I did all the tricks but all in vain.. I’m from Karachi btw..
It’s probably a NAT issue. Read up about it online.
I’ve set my router in DMZ mode. It’s probably Fariya blocking some particular port used by GTA.. All the games work fine and PS4 shows my NAT as Type 2 which is considered open..
That is weird. You should check which ports are used bt GTA and check if they are open. I played GTA V online perfectly fine on my PS4.
Very Good Initiative! No other ISP is doing this in Pakistan. Big props to PTCL!
Nice hopefully this stays up and will have more games + servers . Appreciate the initiative
PGL website is http://www.GamingLounge.pk which wasn’t mentioned.
Good article though. Also, PGL means Pakistan Gaming Lounge (PGL by PTCL)
Just use Tunngle
so, no DOTA. K. Cool.
