Thanks for such an elaborative reply. The timings have shortened as now during 3-5 pm and 10 - 11 pm it buffers , due to congestion.I'll answer, since I'm using IPTV and my provider, at times, buffers a lot.
You mentioned it doesn't happen on Zong - that's because unlike PTCL and Transworld, the other ISPs take bandwidth from both providers and router different IPs via different routes. It's possible PTCL's route is congested but not Transworld's (and vice versa).
Your only solution is to use a VPN. Pick a random country and keep trying other countries since not all countries/routes work well - sometimes, the route between you and the VPN server may be fine but the route from the VPN server to the web server may be congested, or vice versa.
I've gone through this with another IPTV provider, and VPN was literally the only way out (and not VPNs are equal).
Who knows maybe ptcl are working on the issue as I called 1218 and they told me that the exchange sent a feedback that this load / congestion happening in the area due to some cable and blah blah.
Which VPN are you using ? Does it have any dangers of keeping logs or stealing my IPTV codes ?
