PTCL has introduced a new 10 Mbps Broadband package on 10/10/10, This package is in addition to its existing Broadband packages. The New 10 Mbps data rate is offered to the customers at Rs. 9,999 / month with unlimited download. Current PTCL Broadband packages are;
1Mbps at Rs. 1,199
4Mbps at Rs. 1,999
6Mbps at Rs. 4,999
8Mbps at Rs. 6,999
10Mbps at Rs. 9,999
On the other hand WorldCall, one of PTCL’s rival, is providing 10 Mbps Cable Broadband in rupees 8,000. But it’s only available in selected areas – where as PTCL’s DSL coverage spans almost all over the Pakistan.
PTCL’s Delivery of highspeed broadband services remains a question mark – as company’s old infrastructure, particularly in far flung areas, may not support this much of data transfer rate. Only cities like Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi having new FiberOptic lines may support 10 Mpbs data rate.
