For Dial-up Users


#1

Salaams,

If you can not afford DSl, and if you guys could switch to either VPTCL or Worldcall, you can have a better internet access.

Benefits include no dialup charges. Noise free lines hence fast speed.

They are working for me!


#2

But they include daily LINE rent :D

Yeah and they don’t have any 24/7 (as in unlimited) packages either.

vPTCL is awful. The alternative WLL providers are:

Diallog (has an unlimited data package for 999rs / month)

GoCDMA (very expensive, but has rock-solid service)

I haven't tried WorldCall so it would be unfair to comment on it.


#5

and now zong has also provided unlimited internet for only 400+tax per month.


#6

So what kind of speed can one expect to get on WLL?


#7

i m using vPTCL and it sucks (charges are around 7.5 Rs per hour (with taxes))

The speed gets horrible in the evenings when you most need it.

No unlimited internet packages. daily line-rent freaking deduction of 4 - 7 rs.

all in all, it sucks ass. stay away from it, or for that matter, from all WLL operators. get a DSL! 900/month aint that much if you can afford vptcl or go cdma.

That’s true. For someone who’s already using dial-up probably has a telephone line, so DSL is the way to go. On the other hand, WLL and Wateen isn’t bad for people who can’t get a landline from PTCL.

wow! but wat about line rent how much they deduct.


#12

their data package is a postaid package with Rs. 575 line rent and unlimited internet. so no worries about daily deductions :-)


#13

ok so if i make no phone calls through wireless set all i have to do is pay 575 every month?that is a good package.


#14

but is the speed of 10-16 KiloBytes/sec confirmed??? which city and area?


#15

No one's mentioned the fact that over wireless, your pings are higher than that of dialup connections.

So for me, wireless is a "red-zone" area.
