Porn websites still open on PTCL DSL, ISPAK Complaint

Back in October last year, the PTA had issued directives to all broadband operators in Pakistan to block about 1,000 porn websites in Pakistan with immediate effect. Many broadband/DSL operators took immediate action and provided compliance reports (via email) to PTA within a day.

Over 1,000 websites were blocked at the URL level immediately. However, those service providers who did actually block the websites started receiving customer complaints. When they were informed that this is a PTA directive, the customers hit-back by saying:

These websites are accessible on PTCL DSL, how can you claim the PTA has asked you to block these?

Upon investigation, it was indeed observed by members of the ISPAK (Internet Service Providers Association of Pakistan) that the websites were accessible on PTCL.

Convener ISPAK, Mr. Wahaj Siraj, raised the issue with Chairman PTA in an email apprising him of theĀ embarrassingĀ situation PTCL’s non-compliance is causing to other broadband operators. He also claimed PTCL is un-officially marketing this “unfiltered” service to win new customers over.

The ISPAK has been, historically, wary of PTCL tactics to capture the DSL and Broadband market and has repeatedly raised concerns with PTA.

It is also believed that some WiMAX operators are also in non-compliance. This asks for stricter controls on service providers from the regulator to ensure their directives are met in letter and spirit – or if not possible – directives that are not possible to implement should not be issued at all.
