It merits mentioning here that these cities were offered subsidy by USF (see map above) – where it is mandatory for broadband operators to achieve a target number of customers to start receiving the subsidy grants from USF. As it is apparent from the map that USF has plans to stretch its subsidy for broadband to other under-served cities of Pakistan as well.
As we covered earlier about the end of Student Discount Packages over 1 MB, it has been officially confirmed now that company is discontinuing all student packages above 1 MB.
A company statement has said that all packages of greater than 1 Mbps i.e., 2 Mbps and 4 Mbps broadband services will not have the student package discount applicable which is effective from 1st March 2010 onwards.
Earlier PTCL representatives informed all student discount holders via phone calls that company will stop offering student discounts from February 1st.
With a prior notice of one month, PTCL has no legal obligation of withdrawing this service. However, many high end broadband users (who were availing this discount) may shift to other ISPs.
