In the ad they have also shown a 10 m for 10mbps but no mention about it , let's see how they fare in Islamabad

For those interested in the 512 connection , 4 gb lmit is nothing , I am using a 256kbps connection ( 28 - 30 Kb/s constant stream of download ) for Rs 1999/ mth for unlimited usage and my mthly usage ranges around 10 gb download and 2 -3 gb uploads

i m using worldcall 100kbps package and my minimum daily usage is around

500mb download , 700 mb upload


2gb/month cap on 256kpbs is a joke

abbas dude, wordcall sucks so bad that i wouldn't use their screwed up services after experiencing shitty download and upload speeds. And how can u download 500 mb daily man, with 100 kbps which obviously is either shared with 5-10 people. WORLD CALL SUCKSSSSS! and they are the biggest rip offs in the entire world...bastards

Im looking forward to ptcl dsl service. Too bad its not available in Peshawar yet. Let's see how "soon" they start the service here.The main question here is that, is it shared or CIR.They haven't mention it anywhere.

Im using Worldcall for internet purpose and im pretty satisfied. I regularly get 14KB/s (112kb/s) download rate. Maybe because there aren't much people using their internet here.
