Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) has deployed its first ever Fiber to Home service based on Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology in Karachi. PTCL first hinted the deployment of GPON and very high speed broadband back in 2009 and later on we learnt that KHL was going to deploy the network for the company.
With first deployment in Karachi, PTCL’s Fiber to Home service is also available in Lahore and Islamabad as well, reported a news agency citing a company statement. GPON provides a capacity boost in both the total bandwidth and bandwidth efficiency through the use of larger, variable-length packets. It not only provides substantially higher efficiency as a transport network, but also delivers simplicity and superb scalability for future expansion in supporting additional services with lowest cost for all modes of operation.
With this unique capability PTCL has raised the bar of customer experience by many notches. Initially the service includes unprecedented voice quality on telephone, extremely fast and reliable broadband connectivity and digital television with amazing video quality.
