All depends on the marketing that they do with it. There marketing department seriously needs some fresh blood with new ideas. They don't know jackshit about the system limitations & they make a god damn package. Like when they upgraded users from 2meg to 4meg, there were nationwide network choking in some areas. Currently they are upgrading 1meg users to 2meg for a period of 3months, it’s to test network stability & how the system copes with the added load.
I sure hope they provide VDSL equipment to exchanges with line network. VDSL modem costs about 2k to PTCL.
Damn! Looks like I gave you too much credit.

That's the marketing department's work right there. What I was told & wrote was from a technical guy. Check my post history, I think I wrote exactly what you wrote just now

Had the same problem for a month until I got it downgraded and then I saw that my bandwidth has been increased so I applied for an upgrade again, but this time I was getting 2MB speed instead of 1MB on 4MB connection :s
And now, will downgrade again

but best is that they r introducing on existing copper network.. this will be an achievement for PTCL and for pakistan..
ya some are satisfied by there service while some are not. I am getting awesome speed + service in our area is very good just give one call to exchange and line man comes with 30 mins
one of my friend is in PTCL Tech department. he told me PTCL can bring better Internet speed up to world level but problem is their routers, servers and other technical equipments which they are using to provide us internet speeds is too much old and expired technology they don't update any single thing. If they upgrade their servers and these equipments according to European level then you can get mega connections in Pakistan which we don't hope PTCL will do in future so forget dreaming mega speed

^Even if they do its not possible because there line infrastructure is too old now. Most of there current lines can't sustain a 4meg - 6meg connection.
50 mb on copper based line i dont believe!!!!!!!
50 Mb(NOT MB CORRECT YOURSELF!) is way too much over here too! I have a moderate 6Mb connection and we have optic fiber mesh for the main lines and then copper for homes, it would be nice however if these guys pull it off properly
