Regulator orders PTCL to cut international bandwidth rates to boost broadband

10 Apr 2006

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has directed fixed line incumbent PTCL to review and reduce its international bandwidth rates to bring tariffs in line with the rest of the world to help increase the take-up of broadband services in the country. The PTA says that there have been substantial reductions in IP and international private leased circuit (IPLC) bandwidth rates across the globe, and that tariffs in Pakistan need to be revised accordingly.
