0






As we earlier reported, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority had conducted this Quality of Service survey for wireless and wireline broadband operators throughout the country during third and fourth quarter of 2011.
Authority has now made the survey results public, which we are presenting for our readers.
Performance Indicators:
During Quality of Service (QoS) survey PTA considered following indicators:
  • Service Availability,
  • Download and Upload bandwidth Speed,
  • Round-Trip Time (RTT)
  • Retain-ability.
Broadband Service Availability indicates the number of times PTA was able to successfully access the broadband services. The bandwidth speed is the measure of how much data a
subscriber can receive or send to the maximum for different tariffs. RTT is the time taken for the data packet to reach a particular destination and return.
Retain-ability is measure of how much time a connection remained connected during the period of 60 minutes.
PTA said that it graded each QoS parameter into Grade A, B, C, D and E based on the
percentage of score obtained during the measurement.
