PTCL has started charging “Installation Charges” on every new Broadband and Broadband Wi-Fi connection.
One time Installation charges Rs. 500 will be charged from every subscriber from July 1, 2010..
Before this PTCL offer this service without any installation charges as there are no complex procedures and costly equipment are required to install the Broadband.
It merits mentioning here that PTCL’s major rival LINKdotNET is providing this service free, without any Installation charges.
Moreover PTCL recently changed its policy regarding Modem ownership – now the modem remains the property of PTCL despite subscribers pay monthly rental or otherwise installation charges for the device.
