For those of you who have signed-up for PTCL broadband
service and paid installation charges (Rs. 1000/-), what sort
of installation did you get ?.
Today, a PTCL tech showed-up at our doorstep with modem
in hand and said that he would configure the settings for the
modem and that's it.
He had no wire, no splitter, no jacks, no nothing. Said that
PTCL does not provide wire to go from DB to the room where
we want to use the broadband connection. He had no idea
how to splice the pairs into ethernet jacks, or use the splitter
for loopback. "They only gave me the modem and I am here
to config it's settings. We don't do anything else for you. You
should buy the wire yourself".
WTF! ?. Is this for real ?. Did anybody else have a similar exp-
erience with PTCL ?. The guy just wanted us to hook up the
modem to a regular phone jack in the wall... I sent him away
and complained to his manager. His parting words were, "The
guy who'll come tomorrow will tell you the same thing".
If that is true, WTH is the Rs. 1000/- installation charges for ?.
