PTCL is using CDMA Evdo Rev.A technology that provides peak data transmission download speed up to 3.1 Mpbs for ultimate high speed wireless internet services. Evo Wireless Broadband is the latest evolution in internet.
Evo Wireless Broadband offers up to 3.1 Mbps downlink and up to 1.8Mbps uplink. Average speeds vary from 300Kbps to 500Kbps for downlink and 200 Kbps to 400Kbps for uplink. However it varies depending on the physical situation of the user and the network at a particular time.
You can use this service in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi & Mirpur for broadband while traveling. Your Evdo automatically switches* to 1 X in non Evdo Coverage areas. Which means you can also use internet everywhere in Pakistan where there is Vfone 1900MHz network. Please note that in non Evdo coverage areas your internet will be connected on lower speed (153Kbps). PTCL provides a very large coverage area where you can stay connected. * (feature dependent on software settings of Evdo interface)
