NT first to launch 4G services in Nepal

Monday 2 January 2017 | 09:29 CET | News
Nepal Telecom has 4G services in Kathmandu and Pokhara valleys, becoming the first to offer LTE in Nepal. Information and Communication Minister Surendra Karki launched the service amid a special programme in Kathmandu, according to the Kathmandu Post. The launch follows the company obtaining authorisation to use the 1,800 MHz band for LTE. 4G data services will cost the same as 3G services but initially only be available to GSM postpaid users. NT plans to expand the service to prepaid users from February.
