Wateen www.wateen.com . Wateen is one of the first major VOIP based services provider in the Pakistan. It's services are being used by many international carreirs to terminate calls in Pakistan. They provide different type of calling services such as PRI, Voice on Fiber, SIP trunk, Softphone with different Pakistan local cities numbers. Their rates are quite reasonable and I'd say they offer cheapest calling rates in Pakistan so far I seen, YES beleive me their rates are even cheaper than PTCL. Beside that Wateen also provides Internet/Broadband services to home users as well as to corporate small offices.
BrainTel www.braintel.net.pk – BrainTel is the only provider which is very famous among ourseas Pakistani community as it provides you local Pakistan (021, 042, 051 and many other cities) number in anywhere in the world. How it works is, you can get a readymade number configured phone set from BrainTel and take it to anywhere in the world. So let's say you have a Lahore's number phone in Dubai, anyone from Pakistan will dial you local as 042-xxxxxx and you will do the same. Obviously you or someone will pay your bill in Pakistan
However, we are not sure if BrainTel is still offering this service. Although it can be confirmed from them through their above given website.
Telecard www.telecard.com.pk – TeleCard Ltd is my favorite provider as they not only provide all the VoIP, SIP, PRI, Fiber, Ariel Fiber, Landline but the best thing with TCL is, they provide fully redandant and backup system for small business. For example, if you are using their connection, if for some reason their fiber or internet connection goes down, you will be roll over to their Wireless link seamlessly. If we talk about Telecard rate, they are slightly high from Wateen but much better as compare to PTCL. Please note, PTCL is lossing its market as soon as more providers are jumping in the market. So if you are much concerned with the quality of services and bear the cost, then we would suggest, Telecard is the best provider in the Pakistan.
Wordcall www.worldcall.net.pk – Worldcall is one the reading broadband and TV cable provider in main cities of the Pakistan. This company mainly target consumers to use thier Wireless phone services. Worldcall offers very cheap calling rates to the wireless phone customers, like you will get 1000Rs of vaule free balance on new connection.
