Internet in Pakistan – Price war is ON

7 Comments    [ Posted in General ]

Recently with the launch of LinkDotNet and their competitive pricing (256kbps @ Rs.1200, 512kbps @ Rs.1800, 1mbps @ Rs.3900), Maxcom reduced their rates as well (but, 1mbps @ Rs.3600).

I had almost made my mind for MaxCom but PTCL gave another shock! (512kbps @ Rs.1200, 1mbps @ Rs.2000, 2mbps @ Rs.5000) with no Bandwidth limit, and 30% discount for Students. On the other hand, LinkDotNet could not resist and reduced their rates as well to compete PTCL 🙂 , offering 2mbps @ Rs.3900 🙂

It is expected that PTCL would come up with new tarrif in next few days 🙂 while I just noticed the increased speed on my 384kbps Worldcall Broadband, for which I’m paying Rs.1800 per month, it looks like they have upgraded it to 512kbps but its not officially confirmed yet!

    Link dot net is discriminating the Customers. Specially BAGHBANPURA. If you in such an area kindly ABUSE them, since their DSL in such area is truely SHI…..
    They dont have Card at exchange There waste your MONEY, TIME, OPPORTUNITIES….
