This will enable the DSL operators to provide competitive tariffs for broadband services. Certain issues like laying fibers at PTCL co-locations, to lease bandwidth from other operators and several other issues are left on which PTCL and DSL operators have to reach some conclusion. Several meetings were conducted to solve these issues under the supervision of PTA. Due to this the DSL interconnect agreement was pending for several months.

It is announced by the PTA Chairman that broadband tariffs will be reduced significantly with the help of agreement and increase in competition. Due to this the dialup subscribers will be attracted to use broadband services and the penetration of broadband will increase in Pakistan. This will encourage dialup users to shift towards broadband services
