Fiberlink; Better Internet service provider than PTCL

Fiberlink internet provider

From government to business sector, everyone loves to boast about turning our country into Digital Pakistan and how our IT industry is booming, but fail to mention how everyone still gets pathetic internet service. We have moved past 3G/4G technology and though it provides wider coverage, still we are all stuck with bad internet connection.

There was a time when we all had to submit to the tantrums of PTCL, well no more because there is another player in town, Fiberlink (which is currently available in limited areas in Karachi, Lahore & Faisalabad). Fiberlink is not a new name in the market as previously it used to provide connectivity service to corporate clients.

There are very few internet service providers in Pakistan and majority of this market is ruled by PTCL. It has created various monopolies through entering an agreement with various housing societies. Earlier this month Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) issued a notice in favor of Nayatel in a case Bahria Town refused its residents any other CIT service other than PTCL.

Not limited to creating monopolies, PTCL doesn’t provide value for customer’s money as more than often their service is down and if somehow you can get a connection, the internet speed is frustratingly slow, especially if you’re using their dongle.
