I decided to check out some of foreign ISPs to get an idea of the cost of broadband Internet access in these countries. The aim was to find out whether Internet access is unduly expensive in Pakistan or not.
So I visited two US ISPs cox.net and verizon.
For reference sake $20=PK Rs. 1600, $1=80.66
9mbps for $45
1.5mbps for $30
768kbps for $20
1mbps for $18
3mbps for $28
Also some indian ISPs :
Tata indico in mumbai
512kbps for INR 1850
1mbps for INR 3850
512kbps for INR 1350
So generally speaking the prices in Pakistan are not more expensive than abroad. Rs. 1200 for PTCL 1mbps is cheaper than the US or India.
So why does everyone say that Pakistani ISPs are looting us?
