JI Youth protest held against PTCL poor DSL service

By Zahiruddin

CHITRAL: The activists of Jamaat-e-Islami Youth took out protest procession against PTCL for its failure to improve the DSL based internet service in Chitral and the inordinate delay in putting to operation the fibre optic system which had been installed last year.

Led by Wajeehud Din, the president of JI-Youth’s Chitral chapter, they staged sit-in in front of the PTCL office and chanted slogans against the company and were carrying placards inscribed with demands for improving the internet service.

The procession terminated at Chitral Press Club where they addressed a press conference and demanded of the chairman of Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to take stern notice against PTCL for its negligence which affected the internet users in Chitral.

They alleged that the PTCL is charging from the subscribers for 4MB DSL based internet but in practice, the strength of the service is below 1MB and thus hoodwinking the consumers in Chitral.

They said that the laying of the fibre optic to Chitral and the installation of the machinery and equipments in Chitral have been completed last year but it is not made operationalized by PTCL for no obvious reasons.

They also criticized the Warid Telecom for hoodwinking the consumers in the name of 4G internet service which is also a farce in practice and demanded of the PTA to take notice of the matter.

They gave a deadline of one week to the PTCL to improve its internet service failing which the internet users will have no option but to lock down the PTCL offices in Chitral.
