I have used Wateen, WOL DSL & PTCL if i compare to the service provided by Go4b - (Worldcall Broadband) with all the others then i would simply vote for Go4b - (Worldcall Broadband) and question will be why so here is a comparative analysis that might help you before you sign up for an internet connection.
DSL interent connection:
In a DSL connection most of your connection speed, browsing experience, downloads is dependent on three factors.
- Your Phone Line from computer to the PTLC Poll
- PTCL Telephone Connection
- Your ISP.
If your Telephone line gets a little noisy or the connection on the poll becomes a little loose you will have a horrible internet experience in case of DSL, there would tremendous disconnection, your download speed & your browsing speed will suffer horribly. The second factor for DSL is PTCL if a fault rises in a PTCL line at the back end you are doomed and you will be calling your ISP / PTCL / Your Line man and they all will be blaming each other this happened with me when i was using WOL DSL (now know as linkDotNet). And the third element & the last is your ISP which itself had many problems with DSL setup. Apart from that many people have reported the horrible customer service & very slow process for deployment of DSL by all providers .
So far Wateen WiMax internet connection is not that bad, although i never expected it to be fast & reliable but the fact is Wateen have improved there service. We had a 512k line at our office and roughly i get a 64k download speed as the connection is shared between 13 people before it gets to us and is further shared at office where there are about 15 computers. Though the negative point in Wateen WiMax is that it is dependent on weather, if its raining or there are storm outside you will be getting tons & tons of disconnection. If you log a complain there customer support turns up quickly and usually updates the software in the wireless wimax modem. The negative point is you have to spend approximately 18000 for wireless modem they provide which of course they charge in installments of Rs 1300 which seems quite less but in the end you do pay 18000 for a wireless wimax modem which can only be used with wateen. My rule i will not spend any money on such equipment if they give it for free like DSL or go4B then i might get Wateen.
Go4b Broadband Cable Internet
Now Go4b is a cable internet provider means you are connected via a cable directly to the ISP. There is no center body like PTCL or Weather involved which can disrupt your internet connection. You have unlimited bandwidth unlike Wateen though DSL is also now unlimited. Apart from that i have been using go4B internet for last 4 months and i dont know the number of there customer support. There has been no problem at all (Mashallah) . I get a download speed of upto 42k when i was using 256k connection and now the have updated it to 512k and i expect a 60 - 80k download speed which i haven’t tested yet.
