I need to explain this in the office on the topic of switching providers.
I was posed this question which when i sat down to answer, baffled me. I have all this time believed, like an unwritten rule, that CIR's are better than consumer connections, but to what measure?
Why does a 1MB CIR cost PKR 20k-50k while a 1MB consumer connection costs PKR ~700.
If its because of a shared connection, then PTCL's 1MB CIR over fibre is priced at arnd $600/month
Contention ratio: 1:4
Even if i take the contention ratio up to 8 the price comes down to 6.6k on an average
Im going around in circles, could someone explain this?
