It is my request to all the ISP's in Pakistan to be united and who-ever can make better of what I post below should come ahead and start working to achieve it. PTCL staff should be more in it.
This post actually shows how Pakistan is behind other countries according to International Ping / Latency. Currently, In Pakistan, PTCL is the only ISP that pings the most low in Europe and USA. International gamers and Server owners like me do feel this difference. Even India who is even far from Europe and USA East Coast pings 140 in Europe and 210 in USA east coast. Pakistan who is more near, Pings 165 to Europe ( At ONU PTCL ) and 220 minimum to USA ( East Coast at ONU PTCL ). This is currently the lowest ping through any ISP.
By Europe I mean Germany and Netherlands which are the homes Internet and Servers there.
This means Indian people have better service and care for their customers and its time for us to act. We can make our network and routing better than them. We should contact International Routing backbones, take things into suggestions and see where our Fibre cables are getting routed through. Only then we can make it better. We should be making direct Fibre connections to Europe upto Germany at-least from where Fibre cables will automatically get routed to USA East Coast as its already near to that.
Its time to work. Suggest this to PTCL responsible staff and maybe we can make things better Internationally for Pakistan. We can easily play with players around the World.
Even Indian Wireless Broadband USB devices give better ping than Pakistan Wired DSL Companies. PTCL pings the lowest in Pakistan Internationally while other companies are pretty far away. I'm talking about PTCL at Fibre because in that case only it pings about 160/170 which is almost Good. But never better than Indians.
1) Reliance Communication India Mumbai Gives 145 Ping to Europe with ease.
2) Pakistan or Lahore specifically according to Ping Distance would give about 50 ping to Mumbai.
Being near to Europe, this means Pakistan can ping 100 to Europe easily, explained on logic.
The thing is, our Routes are not setup very good by Engineers and they never look forward to make it better. Indians are efficient than us in this regard.
They pass our Routes through Middle East countries like Dubai, Saudi Arab which then lands to France to make it up to Europe. Why is there any need for us to go through Middle East or even France at a maximum ? It makes no logic because those countries are graded ZERO IN INTERNET INDUSTRIES.
If you see Web-Hosting, all the websites are mostly hosted in USA and 30% of the websites hosted at European Servers are either in Germany or Netherlands. Why don't we make direct connections to those countries like India has ? It would automatically reduce ping distances to USA because we then leave it to Europe to do it for us
Our Routing doesn't land on Logical Grounds. Pass this to as much responsible people as you can and maybe soon our Engineers get a wake up call and fix it up.
