Mind your outgoing calls via landline

Published Nov 02, 2012 12:02am

OF late the PTCL has withdrawn the facility of locking zero and thus your telephone now freely allows you or any unauthorised person to enjoy the advantage of making long-distance calls, including mobile phones, thus inflating monthly bills without your notice. I wonder why this change of policy was adopted by the PTCL without prior notice to its customers. A lineman of the company stands chances to make extra buck by renting out fraudulently your cable pair through area’s junction box for a bit of time.

Would the PTCL please explain this change of policy to its ‘valued’ customers?
