PTCL Launches Broadband Entertainment Portal – gets closer to Triple-Play

Share this Article


PTCL has made some interesting moves that the amazing community at Telecom Grid Pakistan has been discussing.

First has been a recent announcement via Dawn and other papers that starting from March they will be reducing their broadband charges significantly – Rs.2k for 1Mbps and Rs.5k for 2Mbps.

These are very competitive rates. In our experience with PTCL Broadband, if you can choose to look past the poor customer service and lack of support for small businesses (static IPs etc.) the actual service quality is pretty good. Added to that a good price point and this should be a very nice choice for people whose phone lines can support 2mbps connections etc.

Now they’ve announced the launch of a Broadband Entertainment Portal which gives access to music, movies, sports and more free of cost to PTCL Broadband subscribers.

It seems like the company is picking up, but I’d like to see their triple-play plans to be implemented soon – those plans are quite disruptive.

  • Some time ago there was rumors circulating that PTCL was in talks with Nayatal for the acquisition of the latter. Apparently the talks fell through in the middle. According to inside sources, PTCL could not match the minimum bid price that Nayatel was looking for.

    For those who have been living under a Rock, Nayatel is a Fiber to the User (fiber to the home) triple play provider servicing residential and corporate customers in Islamabad/Rawalpindi

    The advent of facebook changed all that, most of the forum goers moved to the new social media. It also made a very attractive market place for some one who does not …
