PTCL at last offers Phone n’ Net for all …The specifications of this service for all PTCL phone users goes like this:

Presenting phone n net the most convenient landline internet solution that converts your phone into a basic internet connection. Features:

* Direct internet Access
* No scratch card needed
* Balance never finishes
* No Expiry or forced usage

Also check out the latest Revised Phone Rates …!

So finally Etisalat’s showing off … steps taking place … hopefully will improve with time.

I must also add here, in past few years, prices of everythin hiked up But at least calling nationally or internationally is not expensive any more. I still remember the days in early 90’s when calling Karachi for 3-6 minutes used to cost from Rs. 70-100 (and those were the days when Rs. 100 had some value).

Happy Surfing, Happy Connecting !!!

Meanwhile Tee Emm on Pakistan’s Next Gen Issues blog has something to say regarding PTCL’s plagiarizing act.

For our Urdu Readers :-)

    @DB9: due to islamabad terrain, i won’t recommend you to try any wireless solution. you should go with FTTH by Nayatel. http://www.nayatel.com.pk

    @AFPA: nice post – but there’s much bigger problem :) its going to kill many other low level companies. This service is not promoting level playing field though its good for customer end but *not my now* but many people will be losing jobs due to this.

    well, db9 I don’t think anyone is providing WIFI in Islamabad right now … and FTTH is quite expensive.

    well, db9 I don’t think anyone is providing WIFI in Islamabad right now … and FTTH is quite expensive. I would love to have that cable wala internet thing .. which is not available in Islamabad, but Karachi is full of it .. 600 or 700 per month for unlimited access … I accept speed is a problem but that can be managed with unlimited access.

    The “Phone N’ Net” service by PTCL is so far very “Bakwas” !!! You cannot access certain sites (nopes, I don’t mean no sleazy sites, you can’t even access plain ok sites like http://www.panoramio.com) You can’t log in to yahoo,google talk or msn live messenger !!! and you can’t log out of certain sites like myspace.com !!! what the hell !!! yesterday I initially couldn’t even connect “Invalid user/password on domain” even when I had correctly entered ‘ptcl’ for both with the correct number 13177777 then when I finally got connected, there were no bytes being sent or received !!! I think this service is going to be like any other govt. service “ur lucky if it works” !!! Thumbs up to PTCL guys (You copy/paste from WOL site without even replacing WOL with PTCL and publish it on the net and then u advertise a service like this…not to mention not giving me a job there ! lolz )
