PTA Hearing

critical issues
Critical Issues
  • PTCL’s DSL Services
  • Anti-Competitive Clauses of PTCL-DSL Agreements
  • Un-bundling of OFAN
  • Local Loop Sharing Charges
  • DSL Provisioning SOPs
  • Inter-Exchange charging by PTCL in Karachi
ptcl s dsl services
PTCL’s DSL Services
  • PTCL has reduced its bandwidth prices – appreciable step
  • PTCL has committed to withdraw promos after 3 months
  • ISPAK therefore don’t want to pursue further against PTCL’s own DSL services
anti competitive clauses of ptcl dsl agreements
Anti-Competitive Clauses of PTCL-DSL Agreements
  • ISPs are restricted to procure IP bandwidth and leased lines for DSL from PTCL only
  • No third party interconnects are allowed in PTCL colocations
  • VPNs and video conferencing services are not permitted
  • Clear abuse of SMP status
  • Clear infringements of licensed rights of ISPs as well as private LDIs.
  • Discriminatory and restrictive clauses need to be removed.
un bundling of ofan
Un-bundling of OFAN
  • PTCL has 0.3 m OFAN lines mostly in commercial areas of major cities
  • ISPs don’t have access to this network
  • Customers have no choice but to go for PTCL’s DSL services – unfair advantage
  • PTCL should provide OFAN DSLAM ports to ISPs using ATM PVCs and backhauling to exchange on E1s.
  • Monthly rental should not exceed Rs. 217 per customer per month inclusive of loop charges and DSLAM port
local loop sharing charges
Local Loop Sharing Charges
  • PTCL argued to PTA that it wasn’t providing its own DSL services, hence not over recovering the cost (Determination of 6 March 07).
  • PTCL was charging ~Rs. 50 under O&M Agreements
  • Rs. 150 is ~15% of gross revenue
  • These charges need to be reduced to 5% of revenue, i.e., Rs. 50
  • Or PTCL should sign SLA with ISPs for 99.5% uptime of copper loop
dsl provisioning sops
DSL Provisioning SOPs
  • PTCL’s own DSL service provisioning is very quick – phone and web orders accepted.
  • ISPs go through lengthy cycle of 6-7 days, advice notes, jumpering slips, etc.
  • PTCL’s own SOPs for DSL provisioning need to be adopted for ISPs
inter exchange charging by ptcl in karachi
Inter-Exchange charging by PTCL in Karachi
  • PTCL’s charges full ring distance for local inter-exchange leased lines in Karachi.
  • This practice needs to be abolished and made on crow flying distance.
