Well… If you are talking about PTCL Wireless Broadband then I am afraid you will have to pay the whole amount of device which is 4000 PKR and 1 month charges (2000 PKR).

Today, I visited One Stop Shop situated at Stadium Road, Rawalpindi to get the device installed on my Laptop but unfortunately, they didn’t have that. I was told on phone by PTCL guys, that On the Go device is available on all OSS and sales centers in Rawalpindi & Islamabad, but that’s not true.

PTCL Stadium Road branch guy told me to a week at least or else I can get that from Blue Area OSS. Well… I am planning to get it done as soon as possible so, possibly be visiting Blue Area in a day or two.

Finally, I visited Blue Area Branch. I asked for the device and it was provided. Thank God, I took my laptop HP Pavilion dv2700 CTO Notebook PC and said to the guy to install it on my lappy. Well… he checked the laptop and said PCMCIA adapters is not there on my laptop :O and its either not available on new laptops. I was shocked and asked him then why on earth PTCL made these devices when new users can’t use it… Well he had no justification for this.

I will have to wait for couple of more months for the USB device :s

What say about Wah Cantt, Vfone connectivity & signals are not good even in satellite town, Rawalpindi. Well… you should try to shift your phone somewhere open place or put it new window.

No, you can not get broadband connection non your vfone. You should have a landline number to avail broadband facility.

This is not available in my city and I am still a customer of Link dot Net. PTCL people told me my house was too far away from exchange or some odd stuff…well, whatever. I’m happy with what I have and LDN has also started a gaming zone with CounterStrike and such so at least it is fun…

LinkDotNet recently came up with most economical package (1MBPS for just Rs. 1200/-). And their service is awesome. With new features like gaming zone, they will be boosting their sales.

If you are asking me to decrease the rate, it is not possible as I have nothing to do with PTCL or any of its brands. Please go to ptcl.com to lodge your complaint or call 1218.

To be honest, EVO sucks….Its all bogus the one receives 500kbps to 700kbps speed….i have a PTCL tower within 1 KM range from my home but still i receive like 64kbps to 50kbps max. speed….This is all bullshit…try having a normal broadband and dont waste your money on this fake deal !

My device usb Ptcl works moderately well in my residencial area in township with only 2-3 signals .

But it remarkably fails in the hospital area in the mid of jail road. That was totally mind boggling since i need to use it over there too.

ANy remedial suggestions…..
