PTCL from 1st May 2011 has increased the line rent of the landline numbers from Rs.174 to Rs.199 and is offering free on-net calls (PTCL to PTCL and PTCL to Vfone) during Sundays and called it s “Super Sunday Offer“. The offer is valid for two months period starting from 1st May 2011. Now PTCL Customers can call to any local or nationwide on-net number for free on Sundays.

Effective from May 1st, 2011 PTCL has increased the line rent of the landline numbers from Rs.174 to Rs.199 (excluding tax). To compensate for this, PTCL has offered free unlimited on-net calls during Sundays for the next two months.

PTCL claims that they initiated this so that the people start using the landline numbers again who have moved on to the cellular networks. But to my personal opinion PTCL is playing a very tactful game to increase the rates of their services. From Rs.2.3 per call PTCL moved to Rs.2.3 per 5minutes and then later to Rs.2.3 per 3minutes but finally landed to the Rs.1 per minute call rate. So I guess, there is no difference left in calling from PTCL or any mobile network, rather Mobile network call charges are lesser in some places.
