PTCL Broadband Doubles Up Speed?

There has been stories about PTCL Broadband increasing the Internet speed 100% of what the subscribers are using at the moment. This means that if a customer of PTCL Broadband is using a connection of 512 KBPS, the speed/package will be doubled up and the connection would be 1 MBPS.

Today, I asked this to a friend of mine who is user of PTCL Braodband, and he told me that the speed has increased but when he called the help center and asked about it, they told him that there is no news about it yet and is not official. Some other users of PTCL Broadband told me that they are using the internet on the same speed as it was but others told, that the speed is increased. I think that they are in process of doing this and do not want to officially announce it until every subscriber’s speed is doubled up.

I have a connection of 512 KBPS and from yesterday I am receivign approx avg 120 KBPS downloading speed instead of Avg. 64 KBPS.

I dont know about the package whether it is upgraded or not, but my internet speed has increased and that’s a good news for me 🙂

I think so he is right as its not yet announced officially and it would be great if ptcl announce such an offer as their connection is still good and it will be best after that.

yes ptcl is doubling download speed but first they will upgrade all 512kbps connections and then there will be a turn of 1mbps connections

i have ptcl connection 512 kbps i need some advices for a 512 kbps internet connection. I want to share this connection with 7 persons. I mean we will put a switch to share this connection What is the difference between one user which uses a 512 kbps internet connection and 7 users using the same connection?

@ Adnan:

The speed will be shared to all the people connected. That means if the downloading speed of 512 KBPS is 60 KBPS, and every person starts downloading simultaneously, everyone would be getting approximately 8 KBPS.

The drawback of such sharing is that if someone on your network starts downloading or browsing some heavy website, it will affect all other users.

Hope that helps. Thank you

They might be in process of upgrading your connection speed. You can call 1218 to file a complaint and know the status of your broadband connection.

I have 512kbps ptcl which has been upgraded after forcing staff too much. speed can be good, but ptcl exchange staff is really very bad.

They r not corppuating with me since april 7th and never call me regarding my complains or sometimes they close my complain without my will.

PTCL connection is good if it works but staff is really very bad ( not 1218 staff, exchange staff) 1218 junior staff is also not well trained.

I agree with you but if you see the services they are offering, I will be willing to give them some time to improve their Customer Services.

May I ask, why you call exchange for Broadband complaints? Call 1218 and give them some time to fix the issue or visit their Sales and Service Center.
