PTCL is Going to Double the DSL Speeds

It seems like PTCL is going to double the DSL speeds of broadband customers very soon, most likely with in month or two, at most – same like it did last year. According to news the existing packages will be doubled as

• 1 mbps to 2 mbps
• 2 mbps to 4 mbps
• 4 mbps to 8 mbps

According to PTCL representative and feedback of different users PTCL is testing these double speeds on randomly selected subscribers from different areas of country. These users will be downgraded after the testing period ends to their original speeds and will be upgraded after official announcement, which is most likely to be on 23rd March, but can be delayed as no final date has been announced yet.

The up gradation process may take several months according to the size of network. Though PTCL is using is ADSL2+ which supports up to 24mbps but at same time there are many subscribers on Copper media, which supports up to 4 mbps at most (that too with distortion).

We hope that student package users will also get this upgrade and can enjoy higher speeds at discounted rates as recently PTCL discontinued all student packages above 1mbps.

We will keep you informed on this, you can also share your experience in comments if you got this test up gradation.

No official words on the situation yet.

    The DSL service was discontinued several times for days due to technical faults best known to the officials concerned and whenever a customer calls them he is given the ready made reply that there is a fault in the exchange or the service is being upgraded.

    Many customers have sent written and verbal complaints to concerned officials of the company but they did not get any answer.

    The customers of broadband request to the chairman of the company to send a team of experts to smooth out the problems so that they can get solution to their problem

    PTCL is getting better but not their lines which is still bad in most places.

    PTCL chaps should devise a DSL ultra high speed internet without tagging a phone line. And PTCL should come up with a modern DSL modem with no phone hooked, it must be pure independent jet speed net.

    salam , mujhey poochna ye hai k “kya ye offer sirf kuch months k liye hai ya permenently speed double hi rahegi” aur agar aarzi tor per speed upgrade ho rahi hai phir to sahi nahi hai q k hum sub ko zyada speed per aadat ho jayengey aur achanak speed down honey sai sara maza kharaab ho jayega . uMaR kAraChi
