No More PTCL Discount on Broadband Student Package

Discount on the the most famous PTCL broadband package is over now and will be charged as a normal Broadband package and its charges have been taken at par with ordinary broad band DSL packages. The news haven’t been shown on media or in newspaper but if you see the bill of previous month one can see in right down bottom of the bill a note is written which states that “with effect from 1st November 2013, 1 Mbps student package charge will be  Rs. 1250/month and 2Mbps package will be charged as Rs.1424/month.” This really will be irritating for students who were enjoying the 1 Mbps package with unlimited downloading for only Rs. 1000/month.

It haven’t been announced officially but there are new in market that student package will soon be over and instead of that new packages will be introduced in which one the package is Broad Band economy package in which Rs. 499 are charged for connection of 1 Mbps and with a limited downloading of 1 GB. PTCL is also looking forward to introduce new technologies in addition to broadband services. Pakistan is already lagging behind in technology from many countries a big example of which is 3G, the technology has been introduce long before in many countries and nations are enjoying the advantages of 3G technology further 4G technology has already been introduced in many countries and we still haven’t implemented 3G.

In similar way PTCL so is incapable to provide high speed internet to its users . The maximum limit of speed available on PTCL network is 8 Mbps. Lets hope that PTCL comes up with more user friendly packages ,more advance technology and high speed connections. By now its a unpleasent surprise for student package users that they wont enjoy discount on package from the month of October.
