PTCL now provides Wi-Fi routers to its DSL customers for an additional rental of Rs. 200/- month apart from their monthly regular charges.
Wi-Fi router will enable fixed line broadband (DSL) users to surf wireless broadband service within 30 meters radius. Other service options include the MegaPath full T1 pricing package that offers high speed connections and security options too.
To use wireless broadband, your device whether it is a Laptop, Desktop, PSP, PDA, or cell phone must have Wi-Fi facility. You can secure your connection using password to avoid any misuse. The signals are Wi-Fi are strong enough i.e. up to 54 MBPS.
You can also request a Wi-Fi if you are existing PTCL broadband user. I have also applied for it. Customer representative told me that Wi-Fi router will be delivered within 7 working days. The good thing about the Wi-Fi router is; it supports ADSL + Wi-Fi. It has four ports available. Your old DSL modem will be taken back on the delivery of Wi-Fi router.

Tariff after Having Wi-Fi Router
- 1Mbps Broadband: Rs 1,399/-
- 2Mbps Broadband: Rs 2,199/-
- 4Mbps Broadband: Rs 5,199/-
Though, the service is not new and Link Dot Net also provides the same Wi-Fi router for additional Rs. 100/- but for people who are on fiber optics (new PTCL connections cannot use any other broadband service other than PTCL Broadband), it’s worth paying.
