It is the right of PTCL

It is the right of PTCL consumers to be ntifioed in advance for any price increase or changes. Here is my experience with recent interaction with PTCL department.1. My DSL internet charged has been increased to Rs. 1000 per month. Upon investigation and contacting PCTL, they told me that this is due to new price change policy that limits my internet usage to 50GB per month. I requested to be provided with usage detail but to no avail. So I am completely in dark if I am really using more than 50GB.2. Upon reminding that I was charged unfairly without notification, I was told that I have to personally visit the PTCL exchange to get refund as PTCL is allowing to refund these charges up until Dec 2011. I have to do this every month. They made the process so burdensome that no one can get the refund without spending their whole day at exchange.3. My telephone line just got dead yesterday. Called customer support 1218 and logged a complain. Called after 24 hours and found that there is no progress on the complain. I requested to provide me an ETA but again no response. The thing irritated me most that the customer support personnel communicate with you in a manner that makes you feel retarded. They respond to your questions in a route fashion without listening to you. Finally I was hung upon. We consumers must build a forum to highlight these issues to PTCL. We consumers deserve respect and quality service from PTCL.
