SOURCE???

I think this is a rumor but it's better if it's true.

No, this is the real news because i know many peoples you have already got their upgrades. But i am totally doubtful about 2MB to 4MB up gradation or in another words it's impossible atm. The current lines cannot support traffic more than 2MB and i heard that 2MB will be upgraded to 2.5MB.

SOURCE or proof or this is just a fluke. ;)

Ok 2MB is also upgrading to 4MB. Here is some kinda proof taken from newspaper ad:

In the ad the student says “I can now complete my thesis in half the time”…does that imply hes plagiarizing his thesis from the net :D

welldone ummro...I was reluctant in sending this email but you did it.....

I think Maxcom and others will have to follow suit

and quickly. Otherwise PTCL, with all it's short-

coming notwithstanding, will eat-up the competition.
