Upgraded to 2mb from 1mb Student but difference is


#1

AssalamOAlaikum,

I have recently requested to upgrade my 1mb Student connection to 2mb normal and today morning finally my connection upgraded, but before upgrading when I was on student 1mb I get these values in my dsl page

Downstream Rate 40xx

Upstream Rate 1024

And my downloading was so stable but now after upgrading I am getting,

Downstream Rate 2560

Upstream Rate 637

And if I am downloading without download manager speed is arround 70-80kb/s means the connection is not much stable,

What should I do ? If I do complain then what should I tell them ???

It may sound weird but in some areas of Lahore people have been reporting much more speeds than their original profiles/packages since Mid January/Feb. May be PTCL is in process of upgrading/optimizing its network or it may be some sort of glitch at their end. I have been using 6 Mbps on my 1MB student package for almost a month, touching almost 730 KBps on my 1Mb ONU line.

its simple testing glitches...sometyms exchange upgradation is in process so some specific areas get the taste of new equipment by having high speeds.

hehe… well if that is so, I truly wish they continue this testing process forever. Lately, they have reverted back to my original speed and I find no interest in using internet:)

On a personal note, I find it a very good marketing/advertising tactic to attract the potential users to upgrade their packages by encouraging their thirst for speed.
