PTCL Triple Play Project

LESCO, teamed with my local ISP (who gives bandwidth on LAN, and therefore, dies with every one hour power failure) finally made me bite the bullet and move to the PTCL Triple Play Project aka Broadband Pakistan today. The PTCL techs just left after installing the connection (in 10 minutes) and the speed tests so far are not bad at all.

PTCL speed

Contrary to my expectations, I have had a very smooth customer service experience till now. One of the few good things about Broadband Pakistan is that you can get it upgraded and downgraded for free with one phone call, and you will be charged according to your usage. They didn't give me a wifi modem though (they save them for the 1Mbps lines, discriminating 8@$tards!), but told me to call their office after 4-5 days and they will change the modem (I hope they are true to their words). Now I just need to test the one dozen UPSes lying around to find a working one and I'll be a bit less dependent on LESCO.

  1. Honestly, LESCO is planning to team up with ISPs to provide broadband over powerline (BoPL) services to its electricity subscribers.

  2. I send my very best wishes for success to the people of Pakistan, as India and the United Ststes seek to take over the Pakistan government, steal the property, nutralize Pakistan’s defense system and subjugate the people there premanently. History records the bravery and the intelligence of the Pakistan heroes for all times as the dual axis of evil, the United States of America and ‘?Isreal’, continue their murderous & despotic rampage globally. Finally, regarding the fbi/cia punks and cutthroats:
    As people discover the immoral, cowardly and macabre character of the agents, operatives, handlers and associates of the fbi/cia (as manifest globally in the killing/torture techniques used by these sociopathic assassins to insure compliance to new world order dictates) we may not reasonably expect a merciful redress from foreign and domestic freedom fighters forced from desperation to employ against US equally aggressive and abhorrent stratagems.

    1. Hey, you left Britain out of the axis of evil!
      That is not fair! We deserve a mention.
      After all, we can prove that Allah is real, but we still don’t accept Islam.

    2. Geral – I strongly believe you are sorely mistaken regarding the intent and operating methods of the United States. We seek freedom for all people across the planet, and from dictatorial and terrorist regimes — who are truly the evil entities of this earth. Anyone who kills innocents in the name of their “god” is insane, and enemies of freedom everywhere.


  3. So glad you have the freedom of speech to complain about the United States on a world-wide public highway without being put into jail and losing your job and freedom.

    It’s more than too bad that Christians are not allowed that same right where you live.

    BTW, Torture is never right or moral.

    It would be moral to make sure you include the right people in your negative comments.

  4. foolish one wrote, “Hey, you left Britain out of the axis of evil!”
    MI 6 is a murderous group of assassins who kill and torture with the queen’s blessing; your beloved brits also murdered over a thousand of their innocent French naval allies (as a show of resolve to the Germans & Americans)in 1940-41, so yes the homicidal Brits are about a decadent and disturbed as their American and
    ‘?Isreal’ ‘associopaths’. For more see:

  5. LMAO ! LESCO to bring broadband service to her employers ?? What they’ll download the electricity from and will send us in an e-mail ?

  6. Re. the “smooth experience,” is that still on? PTCL (contrary to my expectations) has friendlier packages compared to other ISP’s. I use MBL in isb but have always wanted to enjoy unlimited 2MB/4MB. The only hindrance – so far – has been the “bad CS experience” (first+second+third hand) PTCL is notorious for.

  7. I m using 4mb internet connection but it have slow speed as it was on old packge, currently download speed is 50 to 80mb / seconds? is this fine speed or not?


  8. Theres nothing like first hand experience. After humiliating myself for over a year, four EVO/nitro devices changed, countless support tickets and hours of agony I have finally reverted to Micronet three days ago.

    I had a 9.3Mbps Nitro device and the data rates kept fluctuating between 0.15Mbps and 2.5Mbps. The biggest problem was disconnections, every few hours in the best case and every few minutes in worst case.

    Support is so damn pathetic, everything done on papers. You don’t even receive a callback and the complaint gets closed.

    Bottom line: PTCL lived up to expectations.
