Transworld have started laying fiber cables in my area of DHA Lahore and I should be able to get FTTH in 2-3 months. However, there are mixed reviews out there, so wanted to get an idea if there is a silent majority with good experience of TWS?

So far, I've read that they route all connections through Carrier grade NAT, and I can get a static IP to bypass that. Any other quirks?

How is their TV service? is it full HD i.e. 1080p?

I've been using Transworld since October 2018 and overall I've been quite satisfied with their QoS & support. The TV channels list is good, with a good chunk of HD channels, however be informed that these are "720p" only, and not FullHD. Also, because it uses IPTV, there's a slight delay while switching channels. Other than that, it has been a smooth sailing.

Is this phase 6 of DHA?

Also does PTCL offer GPON in any of the phases there? If not then is atleast VDSL available in phase 6?

Do they have monthly data limit?

I'm in Phase 8, but the contractor said TWS got contract of entire DHA, so they will be doing all Phases - not sure when Phase 6 will get work done.

PTCL doesn't offer GPON in Phase-8, not even vdsl. Best to check with your exchange.

Which sports channels do they have?
And do they have Premier League coverage?
I just saw them laying lines outside my house in Phase 7. I spoke to one of the guys and he said they should have it up and running in about a month in DHA Phase 7. Have to admit I'm pretty excited, been playing Warzone on Zong 4G since April.

Sports coverage is a bit meh to be honest. Don't think they're covering premier league, you're better off checking out the sports coverage at their customer care center in Phase 5.

How does their TV service work. Does the Coaxial cable connect directly with the modem and I have to wire it to the TV or is there a separate tv settop box that is installed close to TV, and it gets data over Wifi/ethernet?

    Have medium preloaded as well. Don't look too hot tbh but lets see

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Good thing its all on game pass now
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    but yes, for a single player only game, it was maybe priced high at $60. Didn't stop me from getting it and the season pass which mostly went useless anyway lmao

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    give or take an hour I guess...

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    RE7 and Amnesia weren't the same length, not even close.
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    but yeah Medium doesn't look like its worth the full price tag
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    that just makes RE7 over priced when indie studios were making equal length games
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    Well, most people won't be paying full price for medium either
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    Amnesia and soma weren't full prced games iirc
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    dead space, amnesia, soma etc
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    i dont think the release year matters that much. All games in this genre are about the same length
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    and it was certainly bigger than that
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    RE7 came out like 4 years ago :p
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    I mean, RE7 was the same length and it was a full priced $60 game
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    8-10 hours is completely fine for horror games.
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    also, i don't know why so many outlets are gushing over it, i saw the game play videos, it looks mediocre
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    its a good thing its on game pass day 1 cause that won't justify a full price tag in 2021

    The Medium's playtime is 8-10 hours. Doesn't that fall into the 'DLC' length category?
    it seems to fall in line with the last couple of games they've made
