PTCL cuts calling rates

I heard over the radio today that PTCL has cut down its NWD charges to a fixed Rs. 2 per minute. I guess that would certainly help PTCL regain its market share in competition to the “calling cards”.

Will this affect the local calling rate in the future as well?? Here in UAE, the local calls are free of charge and are covered in the monthly line rent (which is pretty cheap).

Views / Opinions??

    PTCL is more convenient than otherwise. however taxes do apply to all calls.

    i normally use my x free minutes on mobile same network to mobile dialling. but for all other calsl its always ptcl.

    i use my mobile for all calls, nationwide or incity. PTCL is too much of a hassle. Since, we both have the same company operating in UAE n Pak, lets hope we get the same local call rates here too.. :D
