Nepal Telecom is extending its 4G network services offering to around 25 cities beyond the Kathmandu Valley.
The market leading operator is conducting trials across the country’s seven provinces, in 32 districts. The launch is scheduled for early October, and is in line with Nepal Telecom’s goal of pushing its 4G network nationwide by February next year.
Pratibha Vaidya, a spokesperson from the operator, said: “NT has finished installing different base transceiver station (BTS) towers; the focus is now on transmission links. The areas will be selected this week and we will start providing the services.”
Core network installation is already complete in Biratnagar, Butwal, Hetauda, Kathmandu and Nepalgunj. The operator believes the expansion will deliver 4G services to a further 6.5 million subscribers.
