    PTCL is still the biggest because it WAS the best ISP. Now it’s just known because it was a good ISP. It has the worst customer service; They just know how to talk politely. It has the worst Internet Service; Frequent disconnections are becoming pretty common now and it wont be long before PTCL goes down to the bottom 5.
    The packages it offers are good though. They are cheap and can be used by students at a discount.

      • Osama Khan

        Wi-tribe should do but if you got some extra budget go for nayatel, it has faster speed.

  • Ahsen

    No one mentioned Nayatel

  • nouman

  • Adi Iqbal

    I’ve disconnected my Broadband just because of their extremely poor Customer Services. They don’t have manners at all how to talk to their customers and also they don’t bother if you tell them you’re disconnecting the services. Getting help from Customer Support department is a nightmare. The pathetic support I’ve ever in my life. And I would suggest never go for their service as there are hell loads of companies around.

    many people complaining about PTCL broadband. as they experience constant disconnection and slow speed problem . but it due to some basic reason , 1st, your house is far from main extension , 2nd . high tension wire n cables n transformers near your house 3rd . too many wires and cables arround your device.

    i have been using ptcl 8 mb for last 4 years and encounter very less disconnection or low speed . but now i changed to Nayatel braodband, which is way better than PTCL ( in terms of 24hrs speed only) . nayatel has very limited and shity data limit . PTCL offer very good unlimited data packages . as far as PTCL is the winner.

    i am a diplomat i came back from toronto. I remained in the house with zong 4g in office with ptcl. Then i shifted to nayatel. Nayatel is way superior in all aspects, customer service, speed. Its speed is more than Canadian broadband even. Whopping. Beautiful uploads, fast downloads. No complaints whatsoever.

  • Imran ali

    Nayatel is so up the field that there are no comparisons any more. However, problem is it is not in lahore.

  • Aqib Javed

    I am part of PTCL and I assure you that our technical end and management is taking necessary action to mitigate the problem faced by our valuable customer.Our ultimate goal is our customer satisfactions.Unfortunately frequent disconnection is due to low line parameters of that specific customer.We are slowly & gradually updating our Installed media from Copper to Optical Fiber(MSAG,ONU).I accept that at some cities,towns & villages our medium is old & absolute.

    INSAHALLAH PTCL will grow & glow with the Blessing of Almighty & continuous support of our customer & management.

    Sooner than later you will feel the Difference.

      Sorry to say dear but the PTCL is the cheapest service in town, (helpline so irritating & poor that they cant guide / gave rude behavior), & my personnel experience is extremely bad (i file complain for Internet & phone,your helpline guides convert to Fibre & there are no charges for conversion from that time to now i am suffering BEST SERVICE of PTCL, in the bill i receive shifting charges & auto update of 1-2mb charges, (i never apply for upgradation as during promotion of 2mb speed i receive less speed from the default pakage) & the PTCL is so intelligent that on the same cell number billing SMS & same address hard copy received but each cant send email on same email id & i update info of email in customer service & after 3 month i receive the email of bill, & the fibre service was so efficient that uptill next change i suffer with respect to phone & Internet, the fault was in the number of PTCL (according to your guys) YOUR Manager gives assurity there will be no problem but same problem still persist & shifting charges were also added….. in my office more then 15 days gone same internet speed issue, limited & no browsing but i am receing calls from the software “problem is solved while nothing saolved & during call session internet was limited tag” )

    I have been reading comments on many forums/blogs but the end result is always “no PTCl please”. but the question “then what???’ is never answered. Nayatel is way expensive in its upfrnt charges (around Rs, 20,000 for ONT and installation etc). Then WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE TO PTCL AND NAYATEL?????? 🙁

    I have tried 4G Evo its worse of its kind. I have tried Zong 4G and its even worst. Zong claims 150 Max speed and 45 Mbps sustainable speed, but it works inside the house at about 0.8 Mbps to 2.5 Mbps, that too with several periodic millisecond disconnections in a minute. Therefore live streaming or Netflix etc is out of the question on Zong 4G. I have also tried Wi-tribe, but they guarantee only 70-75% of offered speed. Hence a 4Mbps connection (which I still use) usually operates between 1.5 to 2.5 Mbps.

    Please advise the alternative 🙁
