PTCL – Phone n Net

PTCL ( Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited) has launched a metered Internet Service at Rs. 0.10 Paisas/minute nationwide on its land-line network. User simply connects by plugging PTCL telephone line into his/her computer’s modems, login to a generic account with ID “ptcl” & Password “ptcl” , using dial-up access number “13177777“.

The billing appears on regular telephone utility bills distributed on a monthly basis to PTCL subscribers.

Gen Kiani’s clan is one of the largest and most powerful in the northern Jhelum area of Pakistan’s largest province, Punjab.
