On a side note, PTCL is hard trying to push its DSL sales. For the purpose, company is offering an incentive of Rs. 300 to be given to any employee who refers a DSL broadband order, after successful deployment of the connection and payment of the first bill.


PTCL implemented in policy of charging its DSL broadband greater than 300 GBs Downloads

In Past PTCL had imposed an extra charge of Rs. 1,000 for exceeding 50 GB limit, but with this new cap, 50GB can is not effective any further.

Now PTCL implemented this new policy of charging its DSL broadband users an extra sum of Rs. 5,000 if they cross 300 GB of download limit in a given month, removing earlier limit of 50GB per month.

This means that DSL customers will now not be charged Rs. 1,000 for crossing 50GB, instead they will be charged Rs. 5,000 if they cross 300GB limit.

PTCL said it is notifying its customers by calling and emailing them.

Reportedly, this extra charge and 300GB cap is applied to 1MB, 2MB, 4MB, 6MB and 8MB DSL packages. 10MB, 20MB or 50MB packages will not come under this extra charge.

PTCL website writes:

For Quality Assurance Purposes and to provide uninterrupted service to all customers, Rs. 5,000 per month will be charged for greater than 300 GBs downloads. This is applicable on 1 Mbps to 8 Mbps DSL Connections

PTCL users, especially those who rely heavily on torrents, will now have to keep an eye on their download/upload meter to avoid extra charging, however, those usual DSL customers don’t need to worry.

It merits mentioning here that this Rs. 5,000 charge will be in addition to original charges of your DSL package.

    PTCL Launched 10 MB DSL Broadband Connection

    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.
