90 percent of PTCL infrastructure hardly supports speeds upto 2mpbs with only 25 percent being able to handle 4mbps. PTCL has failed to acquire what it wanted to when it jumped into consumer internet service. Only a few handful of fiber areas support this 8mbps and even those areas have a lot of complaints.
Agreed with you.
